Growing Awareness

Dr. Rose knows what it means to have dedicated your personal and professional life to making the world abetter place for others. But often, as educators, leaders, parents, healthcare providers, and home visitors, the journey leaves little time or space for tending to our own emotional development. By taking care of us from the inside, we can unhinge from self-judgment, stress, and patterns that no longer serve our best interest. Understanding how our heart, mind, and body experience each moment is the best way to achieve our goals and a better world.

Growing Awareness is a guided experience of self-discovery towards trust in being well in the present moment. Through a series of skills woven together from ancient practices and real experience, you will experience effective methods for breaking self-limiting patterns and habits. These sessions happen in the presence of community – others who are conducting their intrapersonal journeys of self-awareness.

Responses from participants:

  • “Before the group, I struggled with the notion of ‘stillness’ and just ‘being’ without constantly measuring my worth with outward signals of productivity.”
  • “I have become aware of the load and have decided it’s not all mine to carry.”
  • “I noticed that when my heart filled my body, it had pieces missing.”
  • “I became aware that I can be emotional and a leader. Both things are true.”
  • “What changed for me is my awareness of how often I judge people and events, and it’s automatic, so it comes up all the time!”

I’m so glad you’ve come this far, and I hope this is just the beginning of an incredible journey towards a healthier and energized presence. Please contact Terrie about future retreats.
