There will be a gentle exploration of the nature of the Inner Critic-its triggers, its tone of voice, its common themes. We will also look at the negative influence it can exert on our lives + discern the fear and anxiety that lies behind it. Instructions will be given on how to take a “Self-Compassion Break” when the Inner Critic is most active. The course will be conducted within a mindful context, using music, poetry and ample time for guidance, reflection + journaling.
