Freeing Yourself from the Inner Critic
November 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm EST
Do you experience the painful effects of self-judgment, from telling yourself you are never good enough? If you wish to be free from the torment of the inner critic, then this day is for you.
We will explore how to mindfully and skillfully work with self-judgment, and develop greater self- acceptance, self-compassion and forgiveness as antidotes to criticism.
The day will be a combination of talks, and interactive exercises, mindfulness and kindness techniques. This will be a practical and experiential day taught with lightness, compassion, and humor as a reminder not to take ourselves too seriously!
Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. Continuing Education (CE) credit available.
