Full Bio & Programs
Beneath the busyness of daily life flows a deep river of creativity, passion, and silence, a place of contact with ourselves and what matters most. The fragmentation and sheer pace of life in the 21st century often buries this inner dimension beneath the perpetual motion of our days.
This workshop is about slowing down. The Deep River Within introduces three preliminary doorways and six core practices that can support us in allowing our own deeper currents to flow through daily life.
Come learn to
- Reconnect with yourself and tap into hidden inner reserves
- Deal with inner and outer obstacles that hinder balanced living
- Appreciate and enjoy life as it is, in the present moment.
Using exercises, discussion, creative expression, humor, and group support, explore ways to free yourself from the tyranny of to-dos so that you can rest in your deeper self and enjoy the gift of life.
