Workshop Details: “Making Spirituality Practical for Our Relationships”
Being in touch with our spirituality connects us with something greater than us, of which we are part. Seeing that our being is shared with all of life, we are no longer simply stuck in survival mode, endlessly trying to protect ourselves from – and trying to “get” something from – life, and other people. We recognise that love is our essential nature; and that when I hurt you, I’m hurting myself and when I love you, I’m loving myself. So how can we remember this in everyday life? How can our spiritual nature and understanding be expressed in practical ways in our relationships with ourselves, others, the world and life itself? How could it more fully inform and influence the way we treat ourselves and others, feel, think, act, live and love?
“Empowered Relationships: Stepping Off the Drama Triangle”
Nicola is also a singer songwriter and will be sharing songs from her new EP
