Description:
Now more than ever, we as women need to access our true power. Together, we’ll examine the tapestry of teachings around anger, forgiveness, joy, and equanimity to help us connect with our innate wisdom and strength. Using different mindfulness and somatic practices, we’ll identify patterns of our relationship toward anger and forgiveness to unearth the strength that underlies both. We’ll then work with heart practices to incline the mind toward the buoyancy and balance that comes with embodying joy and equanimity. By enveloping ourselves in this richly woven fabric of truths, we’ll come home to our true power.
