An online seminar with Christine Longaker
Now what? When the bottom’s fallen out, how do you get out of this deep chasm? What if your heart’s gone numb – is it even possible to feel love or well-being or joy?
You may be struggling with a constant sense of unworthiness, tension, or harsh self-judgment. Convinced that you are defective or unforgiveable, you’re sure other people deserve compassion, but not you. Patterns of perfectionism or reactivity continue unabated, your toxic inner critic keeps having a field day, and you’ve lost all sense of agency.
This seminar includes insights from a wide variety of spiritual and scientific sources that dismantle the false beliefs imprisoning yourself. You learn why you can finally forgive yourself, and how to clear the debris from your heart. Remarkably effective body-centred meditations shift your feeling-world from black and white to loving colour. There’s a sense of exhilaration when you glimpse your innermost essence, the vast openness and freedom of heart inherent within you. And, rather than being self-indulgent, once you’ve developed genuine understanding and compassion for yourself, then naturally you feel a tender-hearted connection with the whole tapestry of humanity.
The essence of your future is love. Developing genuine compassion for yourself is the first and most urgently needed step enabling you to re-connect to your own heart, and others, with enhanced aliveness, resilience and joy.
