Come. Let us journey together into our own authentic Life force: the essential living energy that permeates all of our lives.

Your journey will begin at the center: with the divine / life force, or soul force.

This fundamental life energy is the tender expression of your inner being, or soul. It unfolds through the heart as your deepest longings, which manifest themselves in all forms of human needs and values. When you live from the energies of compassion, creativity, love, and clarity – while remaining wholly grounded and aware of needs and values – then you are living your passion… You are living the Self-In-Life.

When you're unable to live in that rich fullness of your completely authentic essence, you suffer. 

What you'll learn in this course recording will increase your capacity for self-compassion and unconditional self-acceptance, even in the most trying circumstances. Your ability to come openly to your pain in the natural open-heartedness of mourning will be deepened and strengthened. Meeting life with full vulnerability will also become increasingly available to your innermost self as we explore mutuality via inner – and outer – relational space experiences.

You may experience: 

  • Augmented practices designed to help you retain connection to your authentic essence; 
  • Deepened capacity for self-acceptance and self-compassion; 
  • Practical tips for bringing greater compassion to your relationships;
  • Increased capacity for vulnerability and mourning;
  • Clarified sense of your own spirituality; and
  • Enhanced sense of trusting your own place in life, as well as your purpose.

Finally, spirituality is your relationship to the divine / life force, where beauty is the central essence of your heart. Our practice time together will be comprised of integrating and living with both – and always from a place of wholeness.
