Full Moon Workshop:
Healing through Adversity
with Damien Echols & Chris Grosso

What does it mean to accept yourself fully in all of your perfect imperfections; to take an honest, fearless look at your naked self and stay there, acknowledging both the frailty and the glory in the same glance? In this workshop, Damien Echols, ceremonial magician and author of Life After Death, and Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist, and Dead Set On Living, will address this question, guiding participants to use their difficult life experiences as catalysts towards self-empowerment and spiritual awakening through various meditations, compassion practices, dialogue and more. Participants will learn to make friends with their past, embrace the skeletons in their closet, create an open space for healing, and most importantly, learn to love themselves, and others, without holding back.
