Our ability to communicate openly, honestly and kindly is a core part of the contemplative path affecting our mind, our relationship, and quality of life. Join us for this unique daylong to develop more skill and flexibility in this area. We’ll explore a range of methods to draw on the wisdom and strength of our body as a tool for more authentic self-expression. You will learn methods to sense and maintain personal boundaries, to discern what is authentic, and to express it in clear and creative ways. The day will include a combination of guided meditation, journaling and interactive exercises.
