Free webinar and eBook - Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times

Dear friend,

I'm writing to invite you to a free webinar - Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times - which will take place next Wednesday, June 5, at 4pm Pacific/ 7pm New York time. Even if you're not able to join us live you will receive access to the video replay as well as a free copy of our new eBook 6 Principles for Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times.

During the call, Jeff Foster and I will discuss both spiritual and depth psychological approaches to cultivating self-compassion and presence, especially during the inevitably challenging times in our lives. This exploration is one that has been lifesaving for me as well as for the many thousands around the world I have bee 
n honored to meet and work with in psychotherapy as well as on retreat. 

Here are some of the topics we're likely to cover: 

  • The shift from “healing to holding” - the internal alchemy that happens when we stop trying to fix or even “heal” ourselves, and instead find our loving ground in embodiment and presence.
  • How our wounding, shame, and vulnerability are “not pathology, but path”; how even disappointment, confusion and failure are sacred portals into a deeper and more authentic relationship with life.
  • Imagining “negative” parts of our experience - especially difficult emotions - as lost children, returning home for love
  • The importance of slowing down, and taking life one moment at a time.
We're looking forward to the conversation and hope you can join us. Remember, if you're not able to make it live, you will receive access to the replay. Whether you attend the webinar or not, everyone will receive a free copy of our eBook, 6 Principles for Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times.

I hope to see you online at the webinar next week.
