An online gathering for those who find the holidays difficult

We are not all having the same experience of the holiday season…

Perhaps you have a challenging relationship with your family who you plan to spend the holidays with.

Perhaps you have difficult memories that are connected to the holiday season.

Perhaps you have cut contact with family or recently ended a relationship.

Perhaps you are a parent and you find the holidays stressful to manage.

Perhaps this year you are navigating the holidays with family with varying views on the pandemic and have fear of judgement or arguments

Perhaps you have an entirely mixed experience of joy and pain and all the while being asked to smile, to be merry and bright – while being bombarded with images of the ‘perfect’ holiday season. Sometimes you may feel that you have to hold it all together, when inside you feel anything but merry and bright.

Perhaps many of these things are true for you all at once.

So this holiday season, I invite you to join in community with those who also find the holidays difficult or who have a mixed experience. Those who are seeking peace and a way to enjoy the holidays in their own way.

Join the experience from the comfort of your home or office {using Zoom as our online platform to connect}

Saturday, Dec 11th 1:00 – 4:00 EST

“Thank you, thank you for helping me understand this block and where it was coming from. I never realized how much my mental and emotional energy that I was putting out there was affecting my life and  depleting my emotions. I just thought my ups and downs were normal, not realizing that I was overloaded from a lifetime of taking care of others needs and thinking I am always responsible to fix it so had little left. I wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed learning from you and how life altering your guidance and this work has been.”  ~ Sarah
