How would your life change if you genuinely accepted yourself, just the way you are? Most of us do not really live our lives fully because we are trapped by feelings of shame and unworthiness. Learning to be open to ourselves, with a quality of warmth and self-acceptance offers a way to break out of this emotional prison.

In this weekend workshop Renate, teaches practical ways of freeing ourselves from the grip of our self-aversion. The workshop involves teachings, meditation and discussions that will help us discover the freedom that comes with kindness and true appreciation of ourselves and others. All welcome!
