Inner Sanctuary – Practices in Radical Self-Acceptance & Fierce Inner Peace



Loving-Acceptance, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity –the “Four Immeasurables” of the yogic and Buddhist tradition are the foundation of mental health. Recent collaborative efforts between western neuroscience, eastern spiritual traditions, and modern research psychology have yielded sophisticated emotional education and mind-body tools that have the capacity to fundamentally improve the healthy functioning of your nervous system, your brain chemistry, and the neural networks that support resiliency. In this 7-week intensive series, you will explore the psychology and practice of each of these qualities, generating an inner sanctuary that is safe, nurturing, resilient and centered in personal insight. All therapeutic, yogic, and mindfulness-based practices utilized in this series are gentle, trauma-sensitive, and accessible to all bodies. Evidence-based research associates these practices with a significant reduction in symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and post-traumatic stress. To accommodate participant’s schedules, each session builds on previous content, so that up to 3 sessions can be missed while still absorbing the full content of the series. Lecture notes and instructions for practice are emailed each week.
