The Sweet Life: Knowing Your True Pleasure

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 it is safe to conduct in-person sessions

This workshop will be held online via Zoom

La dolce vita – the sweet life: the phrase conjures images of sophisticated ease and glamorous abandon.

Each of us has the ability and the freedom to enjoy life, even in tough times. Yet, it might feel as there is a veil between you and pleasure – that your enjoyment is dampened by fears, guilt, overworking, addictive tendencies, or a rut. We will start from where you are, and together explore the truth of your pleasure. We will fearlessly approach your apprehensions and lift the veil, so that you can freely embrace your serenity. Savor small moments – even in times of grief or difficulty.

Using art therapy and experiential techniques, Claudia Palmira will guide you in activities designed to invite playfulness and spontaneity to emerge naturally.

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

What to expect in this workshop:

• guided meditation
• interactive group activities

• connection with other like-minded “seekers”
