BEING YOURSELF IS A 3-WEEK COURSE LED BY DR. ROBERT SOLOMON AND DR. AMY JOHNSON, DESIGNED TO HELP YOU LIVE A MORE GENUINE, HEART-CENTERED LIFE.
We explore how culture trains us to be “appropriate”, to do what we’re supposed to do in order to be approved of, and therefore safe and happy. The conditioning we receive from our families and cultures, although well-meaning and inevitable, is inauthentic by its very nature. It points us away from who we deeply are.
This course will help you recognize the many masks you’ve been taught to wear so that you can explore who you are beyond those masks.
We discuss why it’s desirable to be authentic–how living from our heart rather than our head fosters clarity, trust, and close, connected relationships. We discuss the cost of living in an inauthentic way, and how we can experientially recognize the extent to which we’re living from our heart versus our conditioned mind. And we explore how living in a genuine, authentic way could actually eradicate many problems on our planet. Being authentic is the only way to truly be part of the whole because being authentic is living in the heart and it is in the heart that we experience the wholeness and interconnectedness of all of life.
