Healing Body Shame


Our bodies are also the depository for shame, pain, and our fears of not-enoughness.

Shame prevents us from fully enjoying and celebrating our bodies because we are burdened and repressed by the “shoulds” of our lives.

In this course, we will create a potent, supportive container to explore and transform those private burdens of shame that we all carry. We will guide you toward a less shame-laden way of living through various modalities like breathwork, meditation, movement, journaling, visualization, open-hearted sharing, and self-loving.

Creating an understanding of how shame functions in our familial, personal, relational, and collective lives keep us from our full power and pleasure. Participants develop practices of embodiment and compassion to work with shame to experience how embracing vulnerability allows us to bring shame into the light of honor where it cannot survive and build resilience and courage
