Developing a consistent Self-empathy practice is the single most healing thing I've ever done for myself. It has allowed me to heal old, negative beliefs that used to sabotage my ability to enjoy intimate and loving relationships, and to uncover and express the greater Truth of me. Every relationship, friendship, and interaction with others has benefitted as a result. This course will be translated into Mandarin language, and is intended for Chinese speakers.
