What: A gentle exploration of your inner landscape to disarm guilt, dissolve shame, and find strength and comfort.
Why: Guilt and shame pretend to be protective, but cause more harm than good. They are prominent risk factors for anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, and suicide, therefore it is important to learn kinder ways to process our perceived faults and failures. This work invites you to give yourself permission to get off the self-torture train and become more effective, present, and joyful.
How: Yael Saar, founder of Mama’s Comfort Camp, will share some embodied practices to recognize and disarm harmful thought and self-talk patterns to prevent guilt and shame spirals, as well as how to return to our center and self-regulate when we’ve been hijacked by such spirals. This work combines self-inquiry, gentle movement and breath-work, sensory clues, and comfort anchors. We will be introduced to a process for discerning cognitive distortions and harmful cultural conditioning and how to prioritize our true needs over external expectations, thus freeing and empowering our hearts, bodies, minds, and soul to attend to what is truly important and sacred to us.
