Dealing With a Difficult Parent: A Spiritual Approach
How to Avoid 10 Years of Therapy

Aug 25 – 27, 2017

Even within the most difficult familial relationships is woven a golden thread of love. This seminar focuses on a yogic approach to dysfunction to set you free, NOW!

A happy mother and sonIn this weekend of introspective study, partner and group work, and re-connecting with ourselves through Nature, we will embark on an adventure of transformation to overcome unhelpful patterns of family paradigms – and discover how to be freed of them once and for all!

What You Will Learn from This Seminar:

  • How to go beyond forgiveness – to gratitude – to glorifying.
  • Tools to leave the past behind – and live the life you want to live.
  • How to make peace with your parents before they pass on – and with yourself.
  • A yogic approach to not letting others “get your goat.”
  • Understanding why you chose your parents—including the sorry pitfalls of expecting perfection from imperfect people!
  • How to turn the obstacles of challenging family dynamics into opportunities

From Bagels to Curry Book by Lila DeviBased on the instructor’s book, From Bagels to Curry: A Jewish Yogi’s Account of the Passing of a Parent, this weekend will help you to find a thread of pure, overpowering love woven throughout even the most difficult of your familial relationships. Unresolved grief, hurt feelings, emotional congestion: these states are often symptoms of an un-nurturing childhood. Learn how to create your own future by taking responsibility for your past! Spoiler alert: this seminar is an eye-opener.

Tips and Guidelines for This Seminar:

  1. It is suggested that you read “the Bagels book” before attending.
  2. Please note: this weekend will not address serious abuse/addiction issues nor is it structured as a therapy session. Please seek appropriate measures for these conditions.
  3. This seminar is not intended to replace any therapy or medication you may currently be using.
