If you’re “feint of heart,” you avoid confronting the emotional injuries or habits that prevent you from enjoying life to the fullest. You feint this way and that, preserving the status quo instead of moving past obstacles. This workshop is not for the feint of heart—nor the faint of heart. It’s for people who have a passionate commitment to creating healthy relationships within healthy lives.
"The essential foundation of being loved is to first love yourself," Mariah Fenton Gladis writes. "That doesn’t mean a narcissistic pride, preoccupation with self, or conceit. It does mean that the inner life taking place in your body is a comfortable, loving, compassionate, and enjoyable place to be. It is a home to which you can always turn to receive your own solace, support, and unconditional acceptance. This prepares your internal environment to accept love from the outside, and prepares you to arrive anywhere already loved.
