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 will include 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.
You can attend this bilingual workshop without currently being a Focusing practitioner or trainer. The workshop teachers will introduce you to all of the basics of Focusing attitude that will enable you to do the exercises and listen compassionately to yourself.

We will start the workshop with dinner and close with lunch. The long midday break on Friday is for your pleasure, e.g. swim in the venue's open air pool or make an excursion into the nature around.
