When unexpected losses bring us to our knees, we humans have a vital decision to make. Of course, it’s important to absorb the shock of unanticipated events by allowing ourselves to feel the stinging impact of loss. Experiencing our vulnerability as we awaken to the existential reality of our fragility is an important initiation into the human experience. Only to the extent that we can repeatedly expose ourselves to annihilation will we discover that which is indestructible within us. After giving ourselves a reasonable amount of time to experience the naturally occurring grief that follows loss, we can harness the healing power of beauty, shared music and heart-centered mindfulness to release the grief, giving way to experience the present moment filled with endless possibilities, ready to joyfully embrace your authentic life’s journey unfolding before you. This half-day experiential workshop will facilitate a deeper connection to your inner guidance by engaging the power of music to identify your deepest intentions for your life. After having the courage to fully face your losses, you can navigate your way out of the quicksand of regret into open fields of presence, joy, love and service. Join music and healing mentor Gary Malkin as he shows you how you can use music as a soul-nourishing balm within the context of new and old friends from your community.

Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP5310 for 3.5 contact hours.
