Yoga of Compassion: Cultivating a Nurturing Relationship with Self and Others

With Julia Abramova

October 6 - 9, 2022

RETREAT BY INVITED PRESENTER

In the world driven by competition, a new kind of pandemic of paralyzing judgement and shame is on the rise.  We have been conditioned to never feel good enough, pretty enough, smart enough or any of the “not-enoughs” to fully show up as ourselves. This view limits our full potential, leaving us unfulfilled, disconnected to self and others, and constantly searching for something outside of ourselves to fill the void.

Join us for this transformative retreat and learn on how to break free from the critic within and restore a nurturing relationship with Self and Others.

 

“In separateness lies the world’s great misery, in compassion lies the world’s true strength.” ~Buddha
