Relatable: A Workshop for Being Whole

  • Shambhala St. Petersburg 1045 9th Avenue North St. Petersburg, Florida 33705 United States (map)

These days, it seems everyone is looking for a relationship. Some do so to find a partner, others are searching for a magic elixir to restore a failing relationship or change the other person. So much energy is expended that we don't realize that we are looking for that 'perfect relationship' in the wrong places, wrong ways, and for all the wrong reasons.

We are surrounded by many opportunities and possibilities when it comes to relationships but first we must start within. A truly genuine partnership begins with an understanding of your own habitual patterns. With understanding, self-reflection and practice, we can find a better and healthier way to engage in relationships. 

Join Ronald Chapman, a Spiritual Teacher, Internationally Accredited Speaker and Workshop Leader with thirty years experience in this arena. Ron’s practices span Buddhism, twelve-step recovery, and New Thought. He is especially known for somatic practices such as breath work, meditation, and journaling.
