Karla McLaren at the Wake Up Festival!
Hello! I’ll be at the wonderful Wake Up Festival in Estes Park, Colorado, and I hope you can join me there for the first ever Art of Empathy workshops!
The Art of Empathy: Keeping Your Heart Open and Your Feet on the Ground
August 15th, 16th, & 17th from 4:00-5:30pm
Empathy is an essential skill, yet many of us were never taught how it works. As you open your heart, you may find that you need some support in balancing your new-found empathic intimacy with a grounded sense of yourself. Join empath Karla McLaren in a hands-on exploration of the Six Essential Aspects of Empathy, and learn simple practices to nurture your empathy safely and mindfully. Karla will also share her unique empathic approach to emotions that will help you work with them as irreplaceable aspects of your intelligence and your social skills.
About the Wake Up Festival, August 14th to 18th, 2013
When we wake up to our courage, to our authenticity, and to claiming our own value in the world, we can bring forward our unique gifts. The Wake Up Festival explores this awakening from a wide range of different perspectives, and is an event like no other. Our focus is on opening our hearts to an all-encompassing embrace and doing so in a supportive retreat-like environment. We will gather together for five days in Estes Park, surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains, to immerse ourselves in:
The Power of Community– How we can often grow the most when we are in a gathering of people who are committed to the heights and depths of the spiritual journey.
Learning from Great Teachers— How being in the presence of a great spiritual teacher is like sitting next to a living fire of awakening; their passion, knowledge, and experience illuminate us.
Celebration— How one of the best ways to open our hearts is through music, poetry, and dance, celebrating that we already have everything we need to savor the beauty and perfection of the moment.
