Freedom from the Inner Critic 

One of the biggest roadblocks for professionals is how hard they are on themselves. Research suggests that a strong inner critic leads to procrastination, anxiety, and burnout, while self-compassion is the key to resilience and productivity.

This interactive workshop takes a scientific, evolutionary perspective on the inner critic to uncover how the inner critic was created, what purpose it serves, and how we can transform harsh judgments into wise discernments. 

Some topics we will address include: Is it possible to motivate ourselves without self-criticism? How does easing the inner critic lead to better mental health? How does self-compassion impact the body and brain? How is self-compassion different from self-indulgence and self-esteem? How does the brain change as the inner critic eases? What are some tools for working with the inner critic?

We will use psychological strategies, wisdom from ancient cultures, and meditation to break free from a harsh inner voice, and find empowering ways to think about the past, present, and future.

Learning Objectives 

❉  Understand what happens in the body and brain when you criticize yourself or others.

❉  Learn how to motivate yourself to achieve your highest goals without resorting to an inner critic.

❉  Discover why self-compassion helps protect from burn-out and bolsters resilience.

❉  Try out practices that you can take with you and use in the moment to transition from criticism to helpful observations or discernments.
