We Are The Luckiest, a conversation with Laura McKowen

Teacher: Laura McKowen

Cost: $45

September 16th, 2018 from 11am to 12:30pm: 45 minute talk, 30 minute Q&A, 15 minute group meditation.

What happens when life deals us a card we do not want? When we are faced with circumstances or loss that seem too much to bear? In this talk, Laura sheds light on how our most difficult experiences can be portals to more light, love, and more softness toward the world. She will share her own candid story of addiction, recovery, motherhood, divorce, and answer your questions. Through connection and transparency we can heal one another and reclaim our personal power.
