Living Awake: Grief, Grace & Gratitude

With Lilli Ruth Rosenberg and Katheryn Trenshaw

May 15 - 20, 2020

You must apply before you can register. Click here to apply.

“Grief is love with nowhere to go”

Through this deep and intimate immersion, discover the magic of relaxing into the ebb and flow of life’s journey.

Grief is an integral, essential and vital aspect of every life. Courageously experiencing grief contributes to our capacity for sustained attention on qualities such as compassion, kindness, equanimity, and joy; these are simultaneously the fruits of the awakened life as well as the path to it.

This program is designed for those who cultivate curiosity, are interested in depth of presence, and recognize the value of becoming comfortable with discomfort. Our capacity to meet and greet life’s difficulties helps us to widen and deepen our experience of life. Through exercises designed to invite and guide you to experience the power of vulnerability and presence, your innate wholeness is revealed. Through innovative approaches for embracing the perfection of imperfection, you will experience the freedom in realizing patterns of reactivity and move into greater fluency and flow.

Discover belonging from the inside out and explore “dancing with edges”. Living Awake inspires a life worth living. We offer many opportunities to awaken from your personal fixed action patterns, enabling you to experience increased synchronicity and embrace the exquisiteness of life.

You learn to: 
  • more fully connect with the innate intelligence of your body 
  • experience the teachings of your heart 
  • nourish curiosity, discernment, and delight
  • tap into the transformative power of the natural world and ancient wisdom
  • cultivate vibrancy
You take home: 
  • a renewed sense of interconnectedness
  • deeper trust in yourself and life as it unfolds
  • understanding and appreciating response-ability; more able to respond to whatever arises 
  • relaxed vitality
 For women and femme-identified folks only.
