The Roots of Shame



David Bedrick /


Shame is called "the master emotion" because it has the power to filter all of our experiences through a lens that leaves us thinking, "What's wrong with me?" 

In this introductory class, you’ll learn about what David calls the “shaming witness” and the “loving witness.” A shaming witness denies, dismisses, and blames us for our diffiuclties and woundings. A loving witness brings healing, leaving us feeling seen, felt, and believed. 

There will time for questions, dialogue, and the presentation of your own struggles (if sharing is right for you) with some counsel from David. He willl also do a live demonstration with a participant, modeling the use of a healing witness. 

VALUES: I employ a nonjudgmental approach to understanding people and facilitating the class. I believe that pregnant in each person’s struggle, is not only a resolution, but also the seed of profound life changes. Together we create a sacred healing space.
