Finding Strength Through Vulnerability with Melissa Moore

February 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST

Sign up here! Event hosted in collaboration with Shambhala Mountain Center

This course will highlight the principles of Contemplative Psychology and invite participants to explore their innate strengths experientially. Opening up to others can be daunting, especially with strangers or the people we love the most. Contemplative Psychology offers us access to methods that help us hold our fears with courage and take steps in trusting our most vulnerable emotions.

We find strength in community, loving-kindness, and in one’s innate compassion. All this leads to trusting our unconditioned health and brilliant sanity. Please join us for an experiential exploration of our shared potency of heart.
