Service Description:

“Etch Your Joys in Stone” – Lauri Klein, LICSW  

Description: What degree of devotion should we expect of ourselves when we create an intention; when we commit to a task, a new behavior or to walk the path of awakening ?

Lauri Klein will explore the human problem of self blame and negative self talk, these twins that threaten our sense of worthiness. She will talk to us about the connection of this common behavior to how little our brains have evolved beyond very primitive survival instincts.
