Yoga for Anxiety & Trauma: Online Course

If you have experienced trauma, are exposed to others struggling with trauma’s impact, or are dealing with the stress of everyday life, yoga can help you. Yet sometimes people don’t feel comfortable in yoga classes, and this can be due to many reasons such as feeling intimidated by the practice, not feeling like you fit in, or finding that the practice makes you feel more anxious or out of balance.

During this workshop, Hala Khouri, a yoga teacher and somatic trauma counselor, will share with you some specific techniques and pieces of information to empower you to make your practice truly healing.

December 17 & 19, 2018 (Mon & Wed)

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.
