At unexpected junctures in our lives we may find ourselves challenged, and invited, to expand beyond our historical modes and patterns of compensation to stress. Or, we are asked to respond to a more deeply sensed source of discontent.
In a safe and supportive environment we will explore and discover how thoughts, beliefs, emotions and bodily experiences are all present and co-arising; you will see your situation, your difficulties, and your self more fully, through the present moment experience.
