Class Description

I once had a therapist say to me that living in relationships that exchanges authority was a slippery slope for me.  I have found that the bags I carry are quite heavy.  At times managing the weight of them while choosing to surrender can indeed be daunting.  In this discussion, I will share some of the challenges I have had living as somebody who surrenders while managing abuse derived from childhood and previous relationships.  I will also speak about the ways I have learned to overcome my struggle so that I can live with joy in surrender.  I invite attendees to join in the discussion and share the fulfillment we feel in surrender, the roadblocks in the way, and how we overcome them.
