An Introduction to the Living Inquiries – Live Talk in Silver Spring, MD
with Julie Klopp

A 2 hour workshop on Sunday March 26th, 2017

Are you searching for a better version of yourself? A more “awake” or “enlightened” you? Or do you simply want more peace in your life, more harmony with people and things?

Come experience a process that unravels the belief systems and conditioning that seem to define you as a deficient and separate person who needs something else, something more, in order to be whole. Learn how you can move beyond endlessly trying to fix yourself and others, beyond trying to wake up or get enlightened.

Join people from all over the world who are experiencing the power of these inquiries to cut through the mistaken beliefs we hold about ourselves – I’m not loved, I’m not good enough, I’m not safe, I’m a victim, nobody cares about me, I’m not awake, I need to get enlightened… Free yourself from these limiting stories that cause you to suffer and search for a better moment, a better you, somewhere else. Find peace here and now.

Book Launch: Friends With Your Mind: How To Stop Torturing Yourself With Your Thoughts 
with Lynn Fraser

You can’t control or predict your thoughts. You can make friends with your mind. From catastrophic what-if thinking to ruminating over the past, it can feel at times like our minds are torturing us. Our minds are quite predictable. Memories and associations from our past come in as thoughts to help us negotiate our daily lives.

This book is full of practical, effective ways to improve the strength and capacity of your mind. Join me for this 90 minute workshop to put these strategies into effect.

Let Go of Worry and Unhelpful Thought
with Lynn Fraser
A 90 minute workshop on Sunday May 7th, 2017

Worry, What-if and Catastrophic Thinking can get such a grip on our minds.

Much of our worry is a habit that has become entrenched with repetition over time. Our nervous system is alarmed and we can’t sleep because our brain is in a whirl.

Modern neuroscience and the 5,000 year tradition of Yoga Meditation agree on proven ways to wind down this process that causes so much suffering. We will Inquire into the root and practice several ways to calm worry in the moment and to strengthen and heal our system.

Healing Shame
with Lynn Fraser
A 90 minute workshop on Sunday June 11th, 2017

Shame is different from regret or guilt in which we acknowledge we did something bad. With shame, we feel we are inherently bad.

We will look at the social function of shaming and shunning; secrecy; seeing if the facts fit; shaming in our family of origin; knowing whether and how to disclose; shame around trauma and abuse; and breaking the power of shame.
