Healing Through Adversity
Full Day Workshop with JP Sears & Chris Grosso

What does it mean to accept yourself fully in all of your perfect imperfections; to take an honest, fearless look at your naked self and stay there, acknowledging both the frailty and the glory in the same glance? In this workshop, JP Sears, the man behind the wildly popular Ultra Spiritual Youtube Videos, and Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist and Everything Mind will address this question, guiding participants to use their difficult life experiences as catalysts towards spiritual awakening through various meditations, compassion practices, dialogue and more.

In this workshop, participants will learn to:

• Resolve the emotional and spiritual scar tissue that limits you
• Make friends with your past
• Learn to recognize the source of the repetitive patterns of suffering in your life today
• Create an open space for healing
• Learn practices for listening to your heart
• Realign yourself with greater purpose
• Learn exercises for resolving your heart’s pain rather than covering it up
• Understand the principles of listening to your heart’s guidance
• Learn to love yourself, and others, without holding back
• Learn how to discover your authentic self through your heart
