Strengthen your spiritual core while exploring the power of self-care. This six-week class invites you on a journey to a greater sense of purpose and self-worth.

Join us as we learn to locate the sacred in all that life brings.
Celebrating Our Struggles Class Description
Week 1 – Learning to Love Ourselves
In week one, we begin the journey of learning to love ourselves. We shift our focus from our imperfections to the gifts that we have, we make friends with our Inner Critic, and we explore the power of that positive affirmations hold when practiced.
Week 2 – Self Care – Is an Act of Love
In week two, we begin creating a daily self-care practice that supports our journey. Learning to LOVE ourselves requires practice, and through the power of self-care, our gifts begin to emerge.
Week 3 – What Do Our Stories Have to Say
In week three, we looked at the stories we tell about ourselves. Are we allowing our wounds or our gifts to define who we are, and how might we reframe our narrative to best reflect the person we are learning to love…?
Week 4 – Our Gifts Are Sacred Treasures
In week four, we reflect on the gifts we have discovered and how they are the sacred treasures of our souls. Through daily self-care practices, we learn to view ourselves as sacred, and someone worthy of our love.
Week 5 – Living Into Our Dreams
In week five, we ask the question— What if our dreams were a journey and not a destination, what would we dream…? We explore how our dreams give meaning and purpose to our lives; and through learning to love ourselves, we allow ourselves to dream.
Week 6 – I Carry My Light into the World
In week six, we celebrate the gifts we have discovered, the struggles we have overcome, and allow ourselves to dream… as we carry our light into the world…?
