Conscious Loving- Pathways for Awakening our Heart

Conscious Loving- Pathways for Awakening our Heart

Intimacy with others can be the ground for experiencing full aliveness and sacred communion. Yet as so many have experienced, our relationships are also often the source of insecurity and disappointment, hurt and betrayal. 

During this daylong workshop we will explore the beliefs and feelings that distance us from others and keep us in a trance of separateness. We will then engage in mindfulness-based practices such as self-compassion, forgiveness and empathy that enable us to reconnect with our essentially loving awareness, and cultivate genuine bonds of trust, understanding and love with others. 

This workshop addresses any of our relationships not just romantic partnerships.  Our time together will include short talks, silent meditation, reflective inquiry and dyadic exercises.  There will also be periods for questions and sharing.
