Living your Passion, Healing with Compassion 

a seven-day intensive with Robert Gonzales, Ph.D

The essence of living compassion is cultivating the beauty of our deepest self and restoring ourselves to this place of wholeness by compassionately transforming life experience when disconnected.  It is living the fundamental passion of our essential self and compassion in our challenges in life.

This seven day intensive is designed to support you to go deeper into the processes Robert facilitates, with ample time for personal  exploration, reflection and integration. Each day will offer opening mediations and talks, demonstrations of the processes, individual and small group practices, walking meditation / movement breaks, opportunities for discussion and sharing.  The retreat will begin with inner work and move to living compassion in relationships and community.  The processes offered may include:

  •        Deepening into Self Compassion
  •       Transforming the Pain of Unmet Needs to the Beauty of Needs
  •       Compassionately Embracing/ Transforming Core Jackal Beliefs
  •       Choosing and Staying in Life-serving Consciousness
  •        Preparation for Authentic Dialogue
  •        Mutuality and Dialogue from Beauty and Fullness
  •        Empathy practice from Beauty and Fullness
  •        Embodied Spirituality of Nonviolent Communication: developing a spiritual life practice
