Wholehearted: Cultivating Freshness, Receptivity and Love
with Koshin Paley Ellison
Saturday, April 25th, 2020 | 10:00am – 5:00pm

Social isolation is one of the modern health pandemics. All ages and kinds of people have fear around connection and intimacy. Perhaps you wonder how to develop more meaningful relationships to those in your life. How do we turn towards love and belonging? How can we cultivate the freshness of feeling our feelings of fear without becoming them?

How can we find the intimacy that is always available moment to moment? Meditation practice and attitude can support us to live our values, root them in our bodies and widen out.

During this rare opportunity to be together, we’ll explore the willingness to live our values. Together we will practice waking up to living wholeheartedly.
