Befriending your “avoidance”
Thursday Mar 21st 2019
We all suffer from this very human tendency to avoid difficult situations and feelings. We procrastinate, deny, distract and avoid, and then we give ourselves a hard time for doing this. And so the battle continues. It could be some conflict with a family member, or as big as the current ecological crisis. Something in us avoids it.

What if you had a way to get beneath the battle and completely change your experience of these areas of our life, what if you could be kind to those parts of you that turn away and make allies of them? What if you could learn to be curious about anything…

This free 60 minute seminar will introduce a new way of looking at, exploring and even transforming these stuck areas of our life.
