In this workshop we will explore techniques to allow ourselves to experience the full realm of emotions moving through the body with self-compassion. When we experience these emotions without aversion they provide powerful guidance that draws us closer to unconditional love. www.samtheyogi.com; @samtheyogi on Instagram, YouTube
