Wednesday 5th April or Friday 7th April
Scott Stabile, the author of Just Love, writes and speaks about love, kindness, compassion, fear, authenticity, forgiveness, and all the things that make being human a tricky and beautiful thing to be.
We’ll come together as a small group to talk about getting unstuck, moving through fear, and connecting to love. Because intention + action leads to positive change, we’ll consider our intentions throughout, as well as concrete actions we can take moving forward to change our lives for the better.
This is an opportunity to go deep, to look at your life with some new perspective, and to connect with others who are passionate about their growth and healing. It’s going to be a powerful morning. A lovefest, to be sure!
Scott will be sharing relevant stories and insights, and facilitating several writing exercises throughout the mornings. Come with a ready heart, an open mind and the desire to go beyond your comfort zone. Please bring a journal or notebook to write in, and above all, bring a willingness to be honest with yourself.
Due to the personal and intimate nature of this workshop, we will run it twice so if you can’t make Wednesday night, you can join Scott on Friday night.
About fifteen years ago, a friend asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I told him I wanted to spread as much love as possible. My answer’s still the same. I know life isn’t always a party. It’s often hard, sometimes brutal. My parents were shot to death when I was fourteen. My brother OD’d on heroin nine years later. I grew up around a lot of addiction, dysfunction and tragedy. And with too much shame over the fact that I was gay. I hid my pain, and I hid my truth. Not anymore.
We all have our stories. We all have our pain. I’ve come to believe the only way to have a chance at healing our wounds is to be honest about them. Brave and willing enough to face them. The healing part may be out of our hands, but the brave and honest part is certainly within our power. And it changes everything. For me, love supports it all. ALL OF IT. Love is the base note for everything good—compassion, forgiveness, kindness, authenticity—and choices made from love can only serve ourselves and our world positively. Love’s got the power. I’ve been fortunate enough to publish some books and write a movie and be a part of a supportive and wonderful social media community also committed to looking at their lives honestly and through the all-forgiving lens of love.
I’ve finally started doing what I want to be doing with my life—as I told my friend, spreading as much love as possible. Any which way I can do it.
I hope you’ll join me.
