What is Befriending Yourself?
BEFRIENDING YOURSELF IS AN ONLINE COMMUNITY OF FRIENDSHIP, SAFETY AND HEALING …
LED BY A PSYCHOTHERAPIST AND A SPIRITUAL TEACHER
Each week of your membership you will be joining Jeff Foster and Matt Licata LIVE for teaching, conversations, live interaction, Q&A, and gentle guided meditations.
These live sessions are an opportunity to rest, slow down, breathe, and gently “lean in” to the present moment, with the helpful support of the relational field and Jeff and Matt’s gentle, encouraging guidance and support.
There is a unique field of resonance – or “holding environment” – that develops between and inside us when we gather together like this with the shared intention to come home to the Here and Now, open our hearts, and awaken our authentic selves.
If you’re not able to watch the sessions live (we know many of you have busy schedules!), you will still be able to participate whenever it is convenient, connecting with the teaching material at a time that works for you… from the comfort of your own home.
Jeff Foster is an author, poet, and popular spiritual teacher from the UK. He studied Astrophysics at Cambridge University. In his early twenties, struggling with chronic shame and depression, he became addicted to the idea of “spiritual enlightenment” and began a near-obsessive spiritual quest for the ultimate truth of existence. The search came crashing down with the discovery of “nonduality” and the simple joy of Presence. For over a decade Jeff has offered retreats around the world, inviting people into a place of radical self-acceptance and Deep Rest.
He is the author of The Joy of True Meditation (New Sarum Press, 2019).
Matt Licata, PhD is a depth psychotherapist, writer, and independent scholar based in Boulder, Colorado. For the last 25 years, he has been involved in the rich and creative dialogue between depth psychological and meditative approaches to personal growth, emotional healing, and spiritual transformation.
He is author of The Path is Everywhere: Uncovering the Jewels Hidden Within You and the forthcoming A Healing Space: Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times (Sounds True, 2020).
