Transforming the Inner Critic—Weekend workshop

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, July 16, 2017 - 1:00 pm

Everyone has an Inner Critic. A voice of clear criticism and judgement, directed inside or at others. When out of balance the Inner Critic has the potential to destroy relationships, turn our mind towards anxiety and depression, sap our physical energy and undermine our spiritual practice, creativity and careers.

Yet the Inner Critic is not the enemy. It contains the wisdom of discernment. Rather than try to destroy or silence this powerful voice, our work is to become strong and clear enough to stand up to it, hear its truth, yet widen our view.

During this workshop we will use Buddhist and psychological teachings to see this voice more clearly. There will be guided meditations, Self Compassion & Loving-kindness practices, group discussions and interactive exercises. We will learn tools to help transform our relationship to the Inner Critic, bringing it back into balance without losing its discriminating wisdom.
