Self-Care for the Creative Soul with Cheryl Richardson, Alanis Morissette, & Michael Gerrish
March 2-6, 2014
Have you ever felt too sensitive or empathic to live comfortably in a fast-paced, competitive, constantly changing world? Do you dislike the part of yourself that’s too easily affected by what others say and do? Are you tired of conforming to society’s standards or the expectations of others just to fit in? Imagine how it would feel to see your sensitivity as a strength – a precious gift that deserves to be cherished and considered a blessing instead of a curse. Now imagine having the tools and skills to protect and nurture this gift, so you can feel fully equipped to live a fearless and fulfilling life!
"Honoring my sensitivity dramatically changed my life. My health improved, my relationships deepened and became more balanced, and my work life became a rewarding journey as I gained greater access to the artist and healer within." —Cheryl Richardson
