For the Love of Shame

For the Love of Shame

6 Wednesdays: November 4 - December 9, 2020
10-11:30am PST

No matter how much inquiry we do, when we don’t explore the dark side of our mind, we are never completely free.

Who dares joining us to descend to the hidden dungeons of the mind? Explore the chambers we pretend aren’t there. Or we have forgotten about. Or we believe are so well locked that they cannot haunt us. Who dares letting the so-called demons out and meet them with love, compassion and understanding? Who wants to make peace with shameful thoughts?

About the course:
This course allows you to slowly and gently have peace with your most shameful thoughts. By making the hidden visible, we will discover their true nature and their true power. Only when we are able to meet them with love, compassion and understanding, can they loosen their grip.
