Design for Living: Awakening

Jo B. & Herb K. CA, United States

DESIGN FOR LIVING: AWAKENING is our focus. We will discuss, explore, and experience the application of 12 Steps in our daily lives. These are practical suggestions that can open our hearts and minds to review our approach to living our life! Our suffering is the “great persuader”. When we are disturbed what can we do? Is what you are doing not working? Does your daily program need support and to be re-freshed?
This workshop will explore the practice of daily inventory and meditation as effective means of expanding our AWAKENING. We will unpack the practical use of both to foster our own personal Transformation, sustaining Emotional balance and Spiritual vitality. This path of expanding consciousness produces optimal living. When we have a meaningful connection beyond ourselves and live a life of awareness - we discover our life’s purpose. We will discuss our WAY of LIVING as our practical PRACTICE for a life that flourishes!
