    Four Mondays March 5- May 26

    When we think of communication and connection, we tend to think of ourselves in relationship to others. Yet, before we can communicate with others with compassion and authenticity we need to cultivate compassionate presence in our internal dialogue. By understanding what is alive in us in the moment, our internal dialogue can become calm, non-judgmental and even loving. Committing to be present to our internal dialogue is a transformative healing practice that will permeate every aspect of your life.

    Through meditations, self-reflection, partner work and role-plays you will:

        • Explore your internal dialogue and understand its multiple voices
        • Uncover the unconscious self-talk that keeps you stuck
        • Be present with your internal dialogue with neutrality and choice
        • Learn self-empathy and self-compassion practices and develop your own
        • Turn your inner critic into your inner cheerleader
        • Create healthy strategies to understand and dissolve your triggers
        • Develop self-acceptance and self-respect

    Five Mondays June 2- June 30

    In this 5-week transformative workshop we will identify the language of the Heart (connection and compassion) and learn to distinguish it from the language of the mind (judgment and separation). We will approach communication in our internal and external dialogues as a spiritual practice, blending the insights and experience of non-dual Tantra, neurobiology, cognitive science and Compassionate Communication.

    Through meditations, self-reflection, partner work and role-plays you will:

        • Explore the transformational power of language to connect to your true nature
        • Become aware of the influence of your internal dialogue in your day-to-day life
        • Discover dialogue as an essential component of your spiritual practice
        • Transform judgment into empathy and compassion
        • Try new forms of expression that lead to enriched connection and inner peace
        • Experience the power of listening to others with full embodied presence
        • Understand the difference between speaking from the “truth” of your conditioned stories and speaking from the truth of your Heart

    Weekend Workshop - July 12 and 13

    Relationships with others can sometimes get stuck. We might get into a dynamic that gradually turns a friend to a foe. We start by noticing what we dislike about the person, we then unconsciously construct stories about them in our minds that involve labels and judgments. We vilify this person and can even feel powerless with them. We try to avoid them as much as we can. We have visceral sensations when we think about them or are in their presence. When this happens, we have created an enemy image of that human being we might call boss, partner, in-law, relative, co-worker, etc. We have created these images, and we can learn to dissolve them

    Through meditations, self-reflection, partner work and role-plays you will:

        • Understand your triggers that provoke judgmental thinking and knee-jerk reactions
        • Uncover the underlying judgment that keeps you stuck in a vicious cycle
        • Learn a powerful practice to digest the challenge and move toward connection
        • Deepen your self-empathy and self-compassion practices and develop your own
        • Connect to your compassionate nature
        • Create healthy strategies to address challenges with the person you feel a sense of disconnection or power imbalance

    Course Tuition: $148

    Tuition includes materials, teas and light afternoon snack. Bring your own lunch.
