Taught by Heather Prete
"We are more resilient than we know! Now is the time to find that strength!" ~ Heather Prete
Please join us, and Senior Mindfulness and Buddhist Compassion teacher Heather Prete, for this special workshop tailored specifically to address these challenging times. Heather will guide us in finding our inner refuge, our true core of strength and equanimity. Our challenge is not our external conditions, but in believing that we can stand strong in the face of adversity.
We will explore:
- The stabilizing heart qualities of Equanimity and Joy
- Remaining undisturbed through internal and external turmoil
- The antidotes to anxiety and depression
- Understanding the neuroscience of the left brain interpreter and its pitfalls
- The ultimate refuge within yourself!
Note: All workshop sales are final.
