Learning to Love You

Heron’s Nest Retreat #8

Loving ourself can be the hardest thing we ever do … when we’re dealing with judgment, fear, criticism and control. If our parents or authority figures didn’t love themselves, or us, chances are that somewhere inside, we are sure that we aren’t lovable.

These judgments and false concepts appear real (F.E.A.R.). because that’s all we’ve ever known. But I’m here to show you a new way to be and live. A way that includes you, all of you. It includes loving you, all of you. No matter what.

And with this new way of love, you build trust. Trust in yourself, to care for and love you. Trust in life, to care for and love you. And life will get better and better.

You know you haven’t been loving yourself when you have any addiction. When you are unhealthy. When you are beaten down, overwhelmed or exhausted. You know you aren’t loving yourself when you stay in situations and with people who don’t value you, or in situations that are unsafe.

By learning to love yourself, everything in you, and in life will change. I know, I did it and continue to, and would love to show you how.

The following are included and available. If you do not wish to attend all experiences, the fees remain the same and may be transferred to another service.
