Online: Trust Fall – How to Meet Vulnerability and Uncertainty with Compassion and Wisdom 
with Ralph De La Rosa
Saturday, September 4th, 2021 | 1:00pm – 5:00pm ET

The best parts of life — as well as the worst — ask us to show up with an ability to be vulnerable and embrace uncertainty. Whether it’s falling in love, surviving a pandemic, claiming your identity, having a child, re-entering society, or having a difficult conversation… life throws us into vulnerable and uncertain situations over and over again.

It’s not all bad news, though. We can harness such situations for growth, healing, and transformation. We can open our hearts in a way that allow us to walk through such situations with dignity, strength, resourcefulness, and humor. The question is, how do we open our hearts in this way? How do cultivate this ability?

Join author and psychotherapist Ralph De La Rosa for a half day workshop on precisely these matters. You’ll learn how to apply skills of emotional intelligence and resilience in your meditation practice. Together, we’ll explore ideas on how to meet the challenges we face in this unique moment and excavate them for awakening.
