Learning to become the compassionate observer of self.
This course explores how we might develop an insight into how our mind’s work and why we feel what we feel. How might we move towards cultivating a compassionate way of relating to our own “Inner Critic”?
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.
