Freedom from the Inner Critic
November 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PST
Do you experience the painful effects of self-judgment, or hurt from your mind’s harsh attacks on yourself? If you wish to be free from the torment of the inner critic, then this day is for you.
During our time together, you will learn to work with self-judgment with clarity and skill and develop greater self-acceptance, self-compassion and forgiveness as antidotes to criticism. The day will include a combination of talks and interactive exercises, mindfulness and kindness techniques. This will be a practical and experiential day retreat, taught with lightness, compassion and humor and the need to not take ourselves too seriously!
