DAAfrica 2024 07 Essential Nourishment

Once you are registered, scroll down to the lesson titles below and click each title for the zoom links or recordings.

What is it that truly nourishes you? What is real nourishment at this particular moment or stage of your life? In this weekend we will begin to explore the deep question of nurturing and nourishment, that is vital for growth and development. On the journey of spiritual development we become more and more who we actually are, our living beingness in the moment, rather than the old history and conditioning and reactions of the past. And this brings up the question at some point of what really nourishes us now. The things that nourished us before may no longer really be what we need. Opening to what truly nourishes us will bring us to confront some of our earliest history and patterning around nourishment.
