Choosing Love over Fear
Fear shows up in many ways in our lives. Anger, frustration, judgment, anxiety… these are all symptoms of fear. It requires mindfulness and practice to shift from a mindset of fear to seeing and experiencing life through a lens of love: joy, understanding, acceptance…
Through movement of the body, attention to the breath, stillness in meditation and written reflections, we will explore our own personal experience with fear and love. We will identify existing beliefs and habitual mindsets. We will uncover the root cause of some of our sadness, anger or insecurities. We will learn ways to accept our past and move into the present moment with a mindset of love.
Jennison will hold space for you to dive as deeply as you wish into your own exploration of fear and love. You will experience a safe space, have the opportunity to share your experience with the other retreat participants or have the option to explore these emotions privately.
Choose love and watch as life unfolds beautifully in front of you.
