Transformative Breakthroughs: On Radical Dissolution of Limiting Perspective
January 23, 2022 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
In many cases, the frames through which we interpret ourselves and the world can be hugely limiting. Left unexamined and unquestioned, our perspectives have the power to keep us trapped in cycles of fear, suffering, and grief.
Perhaps you have once labeled yourself as “incapable”, “lazy”, or “weak,” or maybe some other flavor of fundamental, unchangeable defectiveness. Possibly, you have been inclined in some way toward a basic mistrust and underestimation of yourself, others, and the world at large. Or maybe it’s nothing this grand, except you find yourself less happy than you’d like and triggered by everyday events more than you’d care to admit.
What is it like to go through one’s entire life filtering our experience through a particular perspective, only to have it fall apart all at once? What is the aftermath of such a reality-shattering breakthrough? Under what conditions do such radical internal shifts in perspective occur, and to the extent they represent healthy growth, how can they be facilitated? What is the role of love and radical acceptance in such change, and what sort of self-worth and newfound lightness might we find on the other side?
In this Salon, we’ll speak of the highs of having finally found liberation from self-imposed judgment. We’ll share the lows of suffering and how our despair has led us to better ways. Join us in this conversation about the perspectives that have both confined and expanded us.
