Meeting Format

Are you tired of those relentless inner voices that seem intent on punishing or derailing you? Are you weary of striving to subdue them? Do you long to find sanctuary from their often toxic messages?

Through shifting our attention from feeling a need to overcome, change or transform the Inner Critic we can develop a new kind of inner resilience. Noticing and appreciating shifts in the Inner Critic's qualities brings us back to our existential base: It is the Larger Self that dwells within, not your critical pattern.
Join us in exploring both existing and new ways of viewing the Inner Critic as a path to healing and growth.

The workshop includes a blend of lecture, discussion, individual, partner and group Focusing exercises, and movement. A pdf Handbook that includes a variety of articles related to the Inner Critic as well as additional exercises will also be provided to participants. Through workshop sessions, practice, interaction with other participants and reading you might also discover inner gems and resources that allow you to live life even more fully.

This training is appropriate for beginning as well as more advanced Focusers.
