Self-Compassionate Awake Awareness: Healing the Parts of Us That Suffer

A 10 Week Online Course for experienced meditators

7:00 PM-9:00 PM

The human psyche is not so much a solid thing as it is a collection of sub-personalities or ‘parts’ that interact with each other and play different roles to help us cope with life. During our early childhood conditioning, different parts develop dysfunctional roles through adversity, trauma, and suffering. These can continue to operate and drive our behavior into adulthood, even the remainder of our lives. Some parts function as protectors, some are managers, some are wounded children, but all of them propagate suffering when they reinforce identification with the habitual, small, solid and separate sense of ‘me’.

In this experiential course we will learn to activate the innate healing power of Open-Hearted Awake Awareness, a boundless resource of love, compassion, caring, and connection, to embrace and heal the inner world of our suffering parts.

Simply to rest in this profound inner nature is healing in itself. But when we extend it to the parts of us that suffer, we release long held emotions and blocked energies that have hindered us all our life. When our parts are not blamed or made wrong, when they receive the love they never got, these parts begin to unburden themselves of their contracted, pent up, painful emotional energies. As these release, our parts take on helpful roles naturally aligned with the True Self, and we discover a genuine sense of wholeness that is always at peace, grounded, safe, clear, and balanced.

Who should attend? This is not a traditional mindfulness course on self-compassion. This course is for students with some experience and recognition of the unconditional ground of Being, Our True Nature, our True Self, Awake Awareness, which is boundless, formless, timeless, and beyond the small self.
