Changes & Transitions Workshops

Every age and stage brings changes and transitions -- some by choice and some not.  All change is fraught with concerns, fears, and questions: How do I know if making this change will make me happy? Is it meaningful? How do I know if I'm making the right decisions? How can I stay true to myself during this transition? Who am I anyway? In this weekend workshop, Phillip Moffitt offers you tools, practices, and principles that can help you answer these questions. This will be an opportunity for you to assess areas of importance in your life and determine whether change is needed, develop options and a vision for your life, and create a plan for making decisions.  The workshop will emphasize making wise choices through clarification of your values.

The program will explore topics including intimacy, self-esteem, fulfillment in work, money, doubts and insecurities, and life balance. Each day there will be teachings, small group discussions, personal inquiry, and participatory exercises. Phillip will also lead mindful movement practices and guided meditations. Additionally, there will be written assignments to allow you to get clearer on where you are presently in life and to create a vision for yourself. This workshop will specifically focus on looking within versus dwelling on external circumstances. Expect a weekend of self-exploration, self-inquiry, and ultimately, self-knowing.
