Feeding Your Demons Workshop with Lama Tsultrim Allione, Wednesday April 10
Inspired by the ancient practice of Chöd, “Feeding Your Demons" is a five-step process created by Lama Tsultrim Allione that allows one to offer compassion and understanding to one's own inner demons rather than engaging in battle and struggle with them. This develops the potential for deep healing and allows the psyche to move from polarization toward integration. The process is of great benefit when working with a wide variety of both personal and collective demons including addictions, physical and mental illnesses, fear, anger, relationship challenges, and other dilemmas of modern life.

ABOUT Free the Girls
By partnering with safe houses and after-care facilities, we provide an opportunity for women rescued from sex trafficking to earn a living selling second-hand clothing while going to school, getting healthy, and caring for their families. Selling clothes allows them to work as much or as little as their school schedule permits.
Let’s face it, ladies: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in our program are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.
