Experiencing Safety, Meaning, and Self-Worth In Your Life
Cultivating A Deep Inner Sense of Well-Being
Big Love’s Existential, Heart-Centered Essentials
We are aware of points of discomfort and, when things need to change, we act with courage to move in the direction of our
We understand the importance of being “in the right places at the right time” — where our soul feels the most welcome — and we follow the Big Love that we hold in our hearts to take us to those places and conditions.
We understand that we have unique gifts and talents that are needed in the world — we were created to contribute, whether in small or large ways.
Finding and following our life’s purpose is of paramount importance, including committing to doing what has deep heart and meaning with joy and enthusiasm.
When we experience feelings of shame or guilt, we acknowledge them but deny their power over us by practicing self-love and self-compassion.
As we connect with others and experience the value we all bring to Life — individually and collectively — we feel the fulfillment of both what we do and who we are, in joy and celebration of all there is.
In the Flow — Secure and Purposeful With High Self-Esteem
Safety — When we are feeling vulnerable — physically, emotionally, mentally, socially, or spiritually — our ability to focus and function most effectively is impaired. Our autonomic nervous system kicks in, signaling us with stress hormones which put us into a “fight or flight” mode. If our discomforts are not redressed, we may lapse into denial and/or may engage in self-harming, addictive behavior. Being conscious of the state of our personal and communal Safety is important, as are developing strategies and tools to achieve the equanimity of feeling secure in all ways.
Overcoming Existential Anxieties
Big Love’s overview of how to engage the existential topics of Safety, Meaning, and Self-Worth is based on a down-to-earth, experiential, and hands-on approach. We examine specific issues within each of these areas, ones that are meaningful and relevant in our world and lives today.
Being Spiritual Activists
The most admired spiritual leaders are activists — people who have taken courageous, principled stands for the greater good of their constituents and all of society. Think Gandhi, MLK, Jr., Mother Theresa, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, and more. In fact, upon closer examination (as part of this study) we’ll look at both the Buddha and Jesus in this light. But spiritual activism is not just for legendary leaders. It’s for us too — especially as we seek to bring more meaning into the world. [Coming Soon!]
W.I.T.W.I.T.W. = What’s In The Way Is The Way, a recent book by Mary O’Malley. This is a wonderfully poetic and helpful work for connecting with those things inside us that often derail us from being and doing what we’re dreaming of. Big Love’s course on W.I.T.W.I.T.W invites us to take an indepth look at Mary O’Malley’s creative, gentle, holistic, and highly imaginative way of facing up to things we otherwise might prefer to avoid — bringing us to enhanced sense of Self-Worth as we do!
