Healing Family Karma – Free Call

This morning as I was writing my daily peace-offering to the folks taking part in my 30 day long ‘Zen Peacekeeper Guide to the Holiday’ I asked:

What is it about the holidays that makes them so stressful?
The answer is: lots of things, probably. But I think there are two things in particular.
Firstly, the gap between cultural and social expectations of what we should do and feel on these ‘holy days’ and how we actually feel, what we can actually do. In the Zen Holiday course we are working with some great tools to ‘mind the gap’.
Secondly, the holidays are stressful because they tap into some of earliest experiences of family (in the broadest sense of the word). The holiday period is full of sights, sounds and even smells that can activate or trigger conditioned responses in us, responses often formed in our early childhood.
Inner peace-keeping doesn’t mean we have to get rid of those external triggers. It’s about cultivating the qualities that help us meet those triggers with awareness and loving kindness. 
Which is why this week I’m hosting a special free call with Eric Klein and Jen Louden about healing family karma.

Eric Klein

Eric has been a spiritual teacher, for the past two decades, and he created and teaches the course Healing Family Karma in which he teaches specific practices, methods and teachings, including meditative techniques for healing family wounds and becoming non-reactive to “trigger” people.

Jen Louden

Jen wrote six books on well-being and personal wisdom that have sold just shy of 900,000 copies and have been printed in 9 languages. She has studied yoga and meditation since she was 12 and has been teaching since she was 28, when her first book became a word-of-mouth best-seller.
I learn a lot from Eric and Jen whenever I spend time with them (whether in person, on a call or in the form of their online teachings).
They are wise ones, but also deeply honest, real ones. And they know a lot about cultivating awareness and loving kindness.
I’ll be asking them to share their best advice, tips and practices for dealing with the triggers that can catch us off-guard over the holidays. I’ll be asking them what ‘family karma’ is, and how exactly we can start to heal it.
