Inner criticism injures; internalized sexism harms. Trying to loss weight because you don’t like yourself or feel ashamed of your body, does not work. What can you learn from inner criticism? You can learn to say “no,” to set boundaries, to build your esteem, to develop personal power.

In this webinar, you will identify your inner criticism, discover ways to stand up to that criticism, and use the wrestle with your inner critic to build your personal power – a power you can channel into losing weight or other life goals.

We eat because we’re hungry, but what are we hungry for? When we don’t know, we turn to food. When we do know, we can build a life consistent with meeting our deepest hungers.

In this webinar, you will learn radical new ways to explore the deeper hungers behind the foods you turn to. You will identify what makes it difficult to reach for those deep hungers and how you need to change in order to live a more truly nourished life.

Of course we want our bodies to listen to us – conform to the shape and size we desire. But the truth is, we need to listen to our bodies. Every aspect of our bodies – their curves, their softness, their looseness, their girth – tells an inner story, carries an unheard message. It can be a story of abuse and trauma, a story of protection, a story of needing more ease, or a story of wanting to take up more space.

In this webinar, you will learn techniques to listen to your body, especially those aspects of your body that you like least. You will clarify its message and find out why you resist that message. You will find some self-love right where you least expected it – in your body shame.

When we work on our problems by ourselves, we come to believe that they are really ours alone. Not true; the shared struggles, conditions of self-hatred, and body shame belong to the culture. Working on them together lifts us as we hold space and each other’s hands. We form community and solidarity in our struggle.

In this webinar, you can bring any issue you want help with. Or, you may simply want to be part of the support and learning system with others. The webinar will revolve around your struggles, your questions, your process. David will work with individuals, pointing out our shared humanity, building a loving space for personal growth together.

Testimonials

“With the gentle awareness & sensitivity I experience in David’s classes, I’ve learned something even better than all the weight I’ve ever lost!”
—Michelle, United States

“David has a profound ability to create safety and at the same time get to the heart of the shame and struggle (and wisdom) of carrying extra weight. As fat girl / woman, our culture invites us to create a relationship with an inner voice who whispers to us over and over “not good enough to be here or there”. I want as many people as possible to meet David before they try that next diet. What he is offering is a rite of passage out of the strictures of perfectionism and into the magic, mystery and empowerment of radical self-honoring and enquiry. David impresses on us that we must see and be seen with the gaze of love NOW.”
—Johanna, Australia

“I have never seen anyone’s work with abuse survivors demonstrate so powerfully what he is teaching.”
—Svava, United States

“This webinar was without a doubt the best holistic examination of the critical societal, emotional and political influences that drive how we, as women, perceive our bodies and ourselves. I came away with a better understanding of the power of external and internal messaging and how it impacts how we express love for ourselves, how we relate to our bodies and how we digest (no pun intended) not only our food, but also our feelings in response. David does more than facilitate, he has empathy for the pain that his clients have endured regarding how they see themselves, their bodies and how they feel they fit in society as a whole.”
—Wanda, United States
