THE FREEDOM OF SELF COMPASSION

~Presented by Ritual~

Tuesday, July 11th, 7-10pm
East Bay Community Space, 507 55th St. Oakland
$30 Tickets: https://goo.gl/mpS0C9

DESCRIPTION
In a culture that prioritizes criticism and fear as the primary ways to motivate and achieve, bringing compassion to ourselves is a practice we rarely value. Yet self compassion techniques can have surprising and unexpected results. Aside from providing support during difficult life situations, self compassion can prevent burnout, increase health and happiness, enhance creativity, deepen connections, improve motivation and productivity, and create more choice and freedom in our lives.

In this workshop we will explore ways to:
– Motivate ourselves with kindness rather than criticism
– Learn what prevents us from being kind to ourselves
– Create intrinsic self worth instead of looking to external sources
– Make our inner critic our ally instead of our enemy
– Transform our negative self talk
– Prevent burnout and binge/crash cycles
– Meet difficult emotions with greater ease
– Improve challenging relationships

Join us in a safe space to learn and practice self compassion tools and exercises. We will learn to talk to ourselves with more kindness, bring empathy to our inner critic, practice soothing self touch, hold a space of non-judgment for any emotions that arise, create unique and personalized self soothing techniques, learn how to take self compassion breaks in any situation, and find ways to soften and compassionately connect with and care for ourselves.

Open to singles, couples, triads, etc… and people of all genders. We support our full community – apply here for a low income ticket:https://ritualtantra.com/?page_id=273
