Workshop Details

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve to be loved.
Although it has been said that we should love others as ourselves, out of all the forms of love, loving ourselves is often the most difficult. We don’t know how to do it. Sometimes we’re not even sure that we should love ourselves, and if there’s a way to learn how to do it, we’re often not sure just what that might be.
Contrary to what you may think, it’s actually possible to learn how to love yourself — no matter how wounded you’ve been, no matter how habitually hard on yourself you may be. In this simple but profound workshop, you can learn how to claim your own beauty, hold yourself in your own compassion, and treat yourself with kindly care. Through teachings, meditation, and exercises, we will explore the following topics:
• Why you need and deserve your own love
• How we get lost on the path to self love
• The many (and subtle) forms of not loving yourself
• The four steps to self-compassion
What better time to reconnect (or finally connect) with the precious treasure that you are? Find true support during this often challenging time and receive the remarkable gift of loving yourself!


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
