Loving Presence Workshop in Bellingham


The world is big and wild, most of it beyond our control; losses large and small, personal and global, bring our hearts back to what is central in our lives: home, family and friends, community, service, creativity. Ron Kurtz discovered that the simple act of attending to another with an open heart, with an eye toward appreciation, works healing, "To learn the practice of loving presence, and to assist each other in such a personal journey, we require a context of trust and safety. Assisting each other in this practice seems to consistently create a kind of sacred space for being together." Join us as we practice together.

Beneficial on both a person and professional level, this workshop offers 12 CEUs to Licensed Massage Practitioners, Licensed Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, and Marriage and Family Therapists.
