The Art of Letting Go: How to Release Bad Habits, Emotions, Relationships, and More

Saturday, November 20, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. CST  

the art of letting go with peter russell 11 20 21We all have things we need to let go of at some time or other, whether possessions, relationships, emotional reactions, desires, behaviors, or something else we’ve become attached to. But letting go seldom comes easily. Peter Russell explains that we cannot “do” letting go; We have to undo the holding on, and allow the letting to happen. To this end, he reframes letting go as letting in and letting be.

In this workshop, we will apply this approach to letting go of judgements and grievances, fears and attachments, unhealthy emotions, and ego. We will experience how the more we let go, the more we can open to the peace, joy, and love that are our true nature and taste the spiritual awakening that mystics and spiritual teachers have spoken of.

Peter will lead participants through meditation practices that are both effortless and, above all, enjoyable. You will learn how to distinguish ego from the authentic self, how to use a simple process of enquiry to discover better ways of seeing things— an essential part of letting go—and new approaches to forgiveness and kindness that bring a more profound love into our relationships.

The workshop will include lecture, guided meditation, and opportunities for questions and discussion,


Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop, which can be viewed for two weeks following the date it was presented.
