Module 2: The Obstacle is the Path - Courageously Facing Life Challenges

May 7 - 14, 2022

Course facilitator: Kåre Landfald

The Obstacle is the Path – Courageously Facing Life Challenges


In this retreat we explore a way to relate to life’s challenges where they are not seen as problems to be overcome or gotten rid of, but necessary lessons that we learn, transform, expand and grow from.
