Session One: The Wound and the Gift – April 8
In this first session, we explore the paradox of wounding and initiation, why adversity can enrich the soul, and how our most daunting challenges often connect to our highest purpose.
Session Two: Your Healing Story – April 15
Turning pain into insight requires that we question our core narratives. In this session, we examine key stories that shape us and the accuracy of these interpretations today.
Session Three: Belong to Love – April 22
When you know what you love, you know who you are. We focus in this session on the heart’s affections, including the tangles, breakage, and pain. Connecting to life through love rather than judgment enables the heart to heal.
Session Four: Dissolving Shame – April 29
Shame is a universally destructive emotion, inextricably bound to the ego-self. Unlike appropriate guilt, which can serve positive growth, shame serves no purpose and corrodes well-being. When you exercise self-compassion, shame dissolves of its own accord.
Session Five: The End of Self-Pity – May 6
In this session, we explore the negative impact of self-pity. As a narrative add-on, a misinterpretation, self-pity turns pain into suffering. You no longer see yourself as a victim of circumstance.
Session Six: The Obstacle Is the Way – May 13
Problems often contain their own solutions. Healing is paradoxical. In this session, we examine the answers that may be hiding within the questions impacting your life, and how challenges give you precisely the strength you need to overcome them.
Session Seven: Creative Fruition – May 20
What does creative fulfillment mean to you? Being a good parent, friend, or partner? Building a business, making a scrapbook, creating art, dancing, or nurturing a home? Healing comes from expressing outwardly what is inside you and what you can offer the world.
Session Eight: The Wind That Blows Through Me – May 27
“Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me,” wrote D.H. Lawrence, describing the spiritual element that gives existence its motion and meaning. In this final session, we’ll look at the transformational power of letting Nature move you forward, without getting in your own way.
