The Good That Is Seeking You from Within

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Southwestern College Campus,

Description: The fear began when, in our curiosity, we stepped away from ourselves. The sensation of separation, while initially exciting, settled in as fear.  From then on, we interpreted love through its reflections.  Reflected love is a contrary and perverse partner.  Love itself continued below the surface, growing in stature, yet undetected by fear. Our addiction and defense of fear masquerades as a dark lover. All this time, and we are ancient, while we fought the dragon, love continued to mature within us.…

Description: Everyone repeats phrases to themselves and to the people in their lives: “I’m sorry,”  “I hear what you are saying,” “That’s not good enough,” and so forth. Where do these phrases come from? Who taught them to us? How do we use them? Are they helpful? For many of us this is an unconscious process that we are ready to explore.

Empowerment into Psychotherapy

Over a quarter million gay and bisexual men died of AIDS between 1985-1995. Compounding the enormous losses was the emotional annihilation of the dying and their loved ones by a culture that shamed, hated and ignored them.  In response, activists took to the streets, often undertaking intensely emotional and symbolic actions, using their most primal feelings as fuel for liberation. By turning rage into courage, shame into pride, grief into compassion, and devastation into determination, these people changed the course…
