Workshop with Dale Borglum, Ph.D.

Sunday, March 1st, 1:00-3:00pm

This workshop will explore possibilities for realizing wholeness at the edge of life where illness, grief, loss, addiction and spiritual yearning arise. Both psychological and spiritual tools will be used in the investigation of these profound and challenging issues. You will have the opportunity to explore the deeper questions surrounding death, healing, and the sacred, so that each of us can better embody an enlivened sense of being in the world in each moment rather than a sense of isolation and denial. Christian, Buddhist, devotional and felt body energetic approaches will be honored. It is through contact with the sacred that true healing occurs.

$20/person.  Reserve your space now by calling 542-7729.

“The work itself is powerful, transformative and indeed deeply healing, but I believe a huge part of that is René’s heart, which shines through every note and every vibration…. His intention for us to heal comes through with crystal clarity. His complete mastery of the instruments and his explanations of their history and use complete the beautiful picture. I couldn’t recommend him and his work more highly.” -Stew Bittman, Co-Spiritual Leader, Unity at the Lake, S. Lake Tahoe, CA
