Breaking Shame's Grip: The Practice of Radical Self Love
Shame is a master variable - that means that it not only makes us feel badly about ourselves, it also leads us to:
- Believe something is wrong with us;
- Try to fix ourselves, rather than heal ourselves;
- Dissociate from our deep body intelligence;
- Distrust our own experience;
- Repeat painful patterns;
- Hide our humanity and dim our light.
IN THIS WORKSHOP, YOU WILL LEARN THE 3 KEY WITNESSING SKILLS NEEDED TO BREAK SHAME'S GRIP AND BEGIN SEEING YOURSELF THROUGH LOVING EYES.
Those skills are:
1) Witnessing your authentic experience accurately and respectfully, instead of dismissing and minimizing;
2) Witnessing self-criticism fiercely and compassionately, instead of being defenseless and unfeeling;
3) Witnessing your truth and path faithfully, instead of not believing in yourself.
The class consists of inner-work, stories, demonstrations with participants, deep sharing, exercises, and the holding of each other in a sacred space.
