The Challenge of Self-Love A Weekend of Inquiry, Practice, and Self-Compassion

For everyone, including healthcare professionals.

Self-love is what makes genuine connection to others possible. True self-love is the antidote to narcissism and self-centeredness. But self-love often triggers our self-loathing, shame, hurt, rage, and fear, which make the practice of self-love and self-compassion difficult or even undesirable.

Blending Tibetan Buddhism, trauma theory, Internal Family Systems therapy, neuroscience, and social justice, psychotherapist Ralph De La Rosa offers a potent weekend of transformative exploration. You experience

  • A deeper understanding of self-love
  • Clarity on your personal roadblocks to self-love
  • Healing Centered Engagement
  • Quiet periods for practicing self-metta (loving-kindness).

This program is appropriate for healthcare professionals, as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to their clients or patients.

Note Please bring writing materials and a mala or any string of beads.
