True personal change is difficult. Often we begin a new practice only to drop it a few days or weeks later. Many traditions emphasize the power of group consciousness as a vehicle for transformation. Self love and self acceptance takes practice. Often negative emotional patterns only show up in the context of interaction with other people. Thus we need to practice with other people to truly transform ourselves.
The Joy of Being experience is a unique approach to online learning, focused on small group interaction. Being is not something that you can learn by reading. Being is a direct experience. Working in a small group, you will practice authentic expression in a supportive and loving container. The Joy of Being course revolves around short daily shared journaling exercises designed to excavate and explore your emotions in the safety of a small group of fellow students guided by Harriet.
Each week you will receive a new guided meditation for self exploration. The meditation is 10 minutes long and designed to be done daily with a subsequent journaling exercise to be shared with your group. In this course you study yourself through the mirror of your small group.
