This workshop is about understanding the relevance in the downturns, distinguishing what can be moved, processed and learned in such stages in order to pull out, and fully utilize what’s been learned when you come up the other side.

Pain pushes until purpose pulls. Life’s stages and experiences can be mapped through a series of waves, like tide, with high points and low. This workshop is about understanding the relevance in the downturns, distinguishing what can be moved, processed and learned in such stages in order to pull out, and fully utilize what’s been learned when you come up the other side.

Along with the concept of life mapping, this workshop will include meditation, journaling and some movement; all tools to better integrate and understand the waves of our past and current experiences.

Come prepared to chat, move, to be still and listen – not just to me, but to your self. Please come with a note book and a pen or two.

Dharma Temple: FORGE YOUR SELF (workshop)

 'If you bring forth what is in you, it will save you. If you do not, it will destroy you'. Woah, right? In each of us there is a wealth of knowledge and potential waiting to be shared. It comes to us in a knowing sense and flows through us in various forms of creativity, service and/or ability. The trick is tapping into this gift and understanding that it is unique as a fingerprint, and no matter how subtle or grand - it is relevant to the world.

NYE 2018: ENVISION

When I was a kid my family gathered annually on NYE to make predictions for the coming year: births, deaths, marriages, politics, weather, economy, etc. First we’d review the predictions collected from the prior year for accuracy, have a good laugh or a good cry – usually both, then move on to map-out what we think may lay ahead in the year to come.
