The Essentials: A Two-Day Live Online Seminar

April 8, 2023 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

This class will meet on two Saturdays: April 8 and 15, 2023
from 9:00am Pacific to 4pm Pacific. 

Learn the foundational practices of Conscious Loving and Living in this live online class. Over two Saturdays, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the skills for aliveness that have helped thousands of people transform their lives. 

In this course, based on the Hendricks body of work, you will learn and practice concepts like:

  • The Drama Triangle and Personas
  • The Power of Commitment
  • Yes Breath
  • Befriending Your Feelings
  • Blame Talk vs. Conscious Heart Talk and more…

You’ll get to play with and experience the concepts as you learn about them, so plan to participate in breakout sessions and group practices. The benefits of practice are amplified when we get to do it in community. 

In Essentials Live Online,  you will integrate practices that will expand your capacity for love, creativity, and abundance every day. These tools are practical, simple, and profound. Included in your registration is the self-led program created by Kathlyn Hendricks.
