Shifting Shame 17th – 19th Nov 2017


Shame is a dark and uneasy emotion lurking within the depths of our psyche, which when stirred, fires up a host of painful emotions and a deep and unavoidable desire to change how we feel, and thus, is a major trigger for the addictive personality.

Shame is insidious, hard to identify, awful to feel, tricky to contain and easy to pass on.

In this 3 day workshop we will focus on where we hold shame, where our family holds shame, in what areas of our lives we feel shame, and how much we mask its hold upon us with perfectionism. We will identify our core wounding.

Talking, sharing, Kundalini yoga, pranayama, meditation and frank discussion will give us a clear view of how to identify our shame, how we hold shame for others, and how we shame. No previous experience of yoga is necessary.
Tools, strategies, postures, breath and new thought concepts will all come together to give us a major leap forward on our journey towards wholeness and the ability to be present, to master the “shattered self”.
