Do you feel you have to hide your vulnerablity from the world? Or do you feel that you are too much or too little or just don’t fit in? Do you fear that something is inherently wrong with you? You may be suffering from chronic shame!
Nobody wants to talk about shame, although we all suffer from it. The less we talk about it, the more power it has over us.
I offer workshops on how unacknowledged shame can stunt both your personal growth and your spiritual practice. Shame can be a debilitating reaction to the feeling of worthlessness, and the fear of that feeling, which can impact our entire life and livelihood. We hide in isolation while struggling with the negative self-belief that “something is inherently wrong with me.” I call this “chronic shame.”
The good news is it is possible to release the power that lies within so that instead of impairing your life, chronic shame can transform into healthy shame and actually enrich it.
In these workshops, you will learn to recognize the universal core reactions around the feeling of worthlessness, cultivate the emotional resiliency to explore it, and release the energy to transform it. Workshop participants attest to the healing power of sharing this process with each other. Shame is a social pain and listening to others’ suffering, activates compassion, and healing.
