The Heart of Self-Compassion Meditation and Internal Family Systems


When we access compassion and love in our contemplative practice, they can be applied to heal our deepest wounds and bring about our highest joys. 

Join Internal Family Systems therapist and author of The Monkey Is the Messenger, Ralph De La Rosa, for a program that integrates healing approaches through meditation, breathwork, lively discussion, and community connection. Utilizing insights and methods from the East and the indigenous Latin American tradition—as well as the "parts work" of Internal Family Systems therapy—you will:

  • Learn to unearth your natural superpower and direct it internally.
  • Integrate a broad spectrum of approaches and experiences with the most powerful aspect of your being.
  • Gain tools and awarenesses that have been shown to bolster confidence, courage, wisdom, and humor.

Whether you feel stuck in repetitive patterns or simply want more heartfulness in your relationships, work, and play, this weekend is for you.
