Polly Young-Eisendrath: Making Deeper Contact: Expanding Your Awareness of Life

Even if this page says “Event Expired!”, the registration link will still work. Sorry for any confusion.

Check out Polly Young Eisendrath’s conversation with Charles Eisenstein, Fear and Control in Uncertain Times, and her many free recorded programs.

Embracing both sides of your existence — pleasure and pain, health and illness, ease and suffering, life and death – you truly befriend yourself and others. This deep acceptance creates an opening to all the varying conditions that emerge in your experience, and to the love and truth that are made available through them.

This four-part course, consisting of sixteen video classes and five live discussion sessions with Polly, offers a new way of encountering your life: to refuse nothing and to learn from everything. Learning to embrace both sides of life will change your mind about everything and build your confidence on all levels. This course is suitable for life coaches, executive coaches, therapists, and those seeking individual personal development. It includes teachings on individual development, couple relationship, love, death, illness, and the human life span.

As with all our paid programs, recordings will be shared with registered participants, with a time limit and restrictions on sharing.
