Faith or Fear? Deciding to Trust the Universe

Mini Urban Retreat

This workshop is part of a year-long series of monthly workshops on Living Well. Select the ones you want, or sign up for them all. This is now a virtual workshop until Italy is released from social restrictions

This workshop will be held online via Zoom

With dozens of spiritual approaches and leaders around, discovering a true connection to your higher self – the Universe, God, a higher power, Great Spirit – can feel confusing. Trusting a higher good can bring up a range of emotions, from fear, to anger, to relief and serenity. In this workshop, we will creatively explore your process around “keeping the faith.” We will explore what’s blocking you from making that powerful choice to believe in your own good – and let go of those familiar voices of fear, cynicism and self-judgement.

Using art therapy and experiential techniques, Claudia Palmira will guide you in a series of activities designed to open your heart and mind to make way for forgiveness and renewal.

The workshop lasts 3 1/2 hours with one break.

What to expect in this workshop:

• guided meditation
• interactive group activities
• guided creative activities
• connection with other like-minded “seekers”
