Soul without Shame Workshop
The judge, superego, or inner critic shapes and limits our daily life. This psychic entity, which praises, accuses, promises, and threatens, is forever looking over our shoulder to see if we measure up. Invading our relationships and undermining our self-esteem, self-judgment is also the primary force interfering with our personal spiritual work.

This workshop will begin to directly address the inner judge using principles of the Diamond Approach. Through embodied awareness (to support presence) and open-ended inquiry (to bring about understanding), we will learn to recognize and confront the assumptions and principles that keep self-judgment in place. We will cultivate aspects of our true nature that antidote self- judgment: compassion, will, and strength. Most important, we will practice disengaging from the judgment process through understanding and deliberate action.

The sessions will include meditation, lecture, discussion, and experiential/movement exercises. The workshop is open to everyone with an interest in and a willingness to confront habitual patterns of self-attack. Bring your courage, compassion, and curiosity.

The workshop is Fri-Sun, Oct 17-19, 10am-6pm each day. The cost is $350 with an early bird price of $315, if you register before September 1.
