Small Group Experiential Workshop
Do you say hurtful things to yourself you’d never say to another person? Do you constantly feel inadequate? Do you beat yourself up over small missteps? You’ve come to the right place.
Shame is the source of many disturbing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Shame can lead to depression, self-doubt, isolation, loneliness, compulsive behaviors, perfectionism, or a sense of inferiority. Shame can be slippery to pin down and hard to recognize. Shame often whispers, “there is something uniquely and deeply wrong with you”.
Shame keeps us from connecting. Shame causes us to turn all the pain of life’s difficulties inward in self-hatred. Many times, the voices of those in our lives that have been abusive start sounding like our own. These patterns can change.
By learning the different types of shame, why we carry it, the tools to recognize self-criticism, and the gentle and effective ways in which to reduce shame, life can be empowered and hopeful again. Shame is the venom that keeps life small. Compassion is the antidote.
The workshop includes:
- Gain insight into how shame has affected your life
- Learn the difference between guilt and shame
- Gain gentle tools to cultivate deep self-compassion
- Investigate shame without increasing self-contempt in the process
- Discover the many faces of shame
- Understand legitimate and illegitimate shame
- Learn to move forward with compassion
- Know how to reduce shame without adding narcissistic tendencies
- Gain skills for lessening shame
- Find out how to create a shame-free zone
