Yoga and Resilience for Change-Makers with RW Alves

The work you’re doing in the world is important. Increasing your own regulation and resilience can enable you to show up to your work more integrated, embodied, grounded, and empowered to make change and transformation, and to do the important work in the world that you are called to do.

Compassionate or Codependent - The Wisdom To Know The Difference: Online Course

True compassion balances concern and wisdom. When we find ourselves trying to fix another person or needing to help for our own sense of identity – it’s codependence not compassion. Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield stresses that true compassion only comes through deep self- acceptance. This session explores codependence, compassion and self-acceptance.
