Who else would enjoy this summit?
What You'll Learn
Explore how “being with” difficult emotions with non-judgmental, compassionate, embodied awareness allows them to naturally open and transform, revealing the innate well-being and “essence love” at the core of our beings
Understand how the cognitive mind can keep us trapped in cycles of emotional struggle by trying to fix, change, ignore, or run away from what we are feeling, rather than meeting it with direct kind awareness
Be led in a guided practice to help you work with difficult emotions and connect with your grounded body, open heart, and clear mind
