Healing the Healers: Module 1

Healing the Healers draws from the wisdom of our ancestors – our quality of life is enhanced when we do not live in fear or denial of suffering and death. The results of facing or “leaning into” existential/spiritual pain are profound:

  • physical and emotional well-being;
  • antidotes for compassion fatigue and burnout;
  • enhanced capacity for healing;
  • peace of mind and improved relationships.

In these four internationally acclaimed workshops, participants will explore universal patterns of spiritual and emotional suffering (in areas of forgiveness, relatedness, meaning and hope) with time-tested ways to relieve them. All programs are a creative blend of best practices, instruction, personal reflection, hands-on experience, multimedia presentations and inspiring rituals from the world’s great wisdom traditions. The workshops are followed up with monthly Circles of Trust.
