Workshop Details

Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling, they’re given wings.
Much in life is beyond our control. Our choices lie in how we respond to these moments. We can develop the ability to move into these moments with aliveness and passion. This choice is an act of courage.
This workshop helps you explore what you are holding in, holding onto, and holding back that keeps you from experiencing who you truly are. “The courage to be you” means the ability to appropriately express the repressed anger, fear, resentments, sadness, joy, and laughter that keep you stuck in old patterns. Using emotional release work, writing, movement, Gestalt, meditation, and silence, the workshop provides a safe environment to explore your deepest emotions. The focus will be on:
• Having adult relationships with partners, parents, and children
• Taking full responsibility for your life
• Discovering your own personal rhythm of closeness
• Distinguishing accountability from blame
The workshop constitutes an in-depth life review. All that is required is a willingness to engage wholeheartedly. This workshop may have up to thirty-four participants.
