Turning Uncomfortable Emotions Into Peace
Five days of inquiry in the beautiful mountains of Portugal
Your Emotions are a Resource - Use Them
As human beings we tend to turn away from emotions which we perceive as uncomfortable. Consequently, we don’t deal with the underlying causes of our problems thus making them reappear again and again. In reality this discomfort is our most potent fuel when we need to take action and find peace and clarity. By learning to embrace our discomfort we empower ourselves to meet change, adversity and conflicts with peace, strength and integrity.
Friday, June 7th - Wednesday, June 12th.
A maximum of 11 participants.
