Not For the Feint of Heart: Be Bold in Your Personal Growth

Oct 29 - Nov 03, 2017 Begins in 1 month
with Mariah Fenton Gladis with Gonan Premfors

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.


Arrive Already Loved: Creating Sacred Attachment with Yourself in the Here and Now

with Mariah Fenton Gladis with Gonan Premfors

"Many people ask me how to have a fair shot at developing a healthy relationship with another human being," writes Mariah Fenton Gladis. "I advise them to arrive already loved. What does that mean? It means the essential foundation of being loved is to first love yourself. 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.
