Doorway to Meditation Eight-Week Course

“The road out of addiction can be long and fraught with pitfalls. Yet, we can interrupt our patterns and find our way back to self authority.”
Shaura is able to support each individual with respect for where they are in their life journey. Patiently encouraging us to find answers to our own questions, she gently drawing us out of our comfort zones, in order to observe and move beyond our own conditioning. The way in which she holds space within the group allows us to amplify our learning from that which is reflected by others, fostering an acceptance of ourselves and the other as part of a greater whole.
