The Fierce Power of Vulnerability: An Open Heart Project Retreat

with Susan Piver
February 1 / 7:00 PM - February 2 / 6:00 PM

This program is now closed for on-line registration.

If you would like to resgister, please call Richard at 212. 675. 6544. Thank you.

Our world suggests that when we open our heart, we risk tremendous sorrow and pain. Thus, we are encouraged to keep the tenderest part of ourselves hidden--but this is also were love, creativity, and magic reside.

It is dangerous to open your heart, but only if you fear sorrow and pain. When we become unafraid of the darker, sweeter, and more piercing emotions and learn to embrace them instead, we discover the source of power and its inseparability from vulnerability.

Register for the full program, or join us just for Friday night's public talk.
