This two-day workshop offers an expansive and useful understanding of how to work with chaos and adversity such as illness, grief, loss of livelihood, ending of a relationship, and other devastating losses. Jeff Rubin will help us explore how to work with something unexpected in our life that upends our sense of self and leaves us reeling.

Human beings are deeply conditioned to seek pleasure and avoid pain constantly. This attitude is ingrained in us and reinforced by our culture. Yet pleasure seeking/pain avoidance is impossible to sustain, especially when we confront adverse circumstances, such as serious illness or the loss of a loved one. We begin to question ourselves and our life’s purpose.

The view of Unconditional Healing is that these moments of adversity offer us opportunities to:

  • Awaken and heal
  • Take stock of ourselves
  • Explore our underlying core beliefs

Genuine health and well-being is unconditional and inherent to human beings, no matter what circumstances befall us. Physical health is but a small piece of the puzzle of who we are; real health encompasses the whole human being, including mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

With a subtle shift in our attitude, adversity can provide the auspicious circumstance to arouse and deepen our latent compassion and wisdom. All are welcome, no experience with meditation is necessary.

Jeff Rubin’s work through his workshops and Healing Circles provides support and reassurance for those experiencing immense suffering due to feelings of isolation, stigma and trauma due to loss and illness. His methods developed through his own personal journey with a serious degenerative illness, which first surfaced in 1999. He is also a teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition.
