Understanding & Nurturing the Inner Critic (Online)

In the midst of fulfilling daily tasks and adjusting to the new norms, it is easy for us to get caught up in reactivity - i.e. living on autopilot, engaging in self-judgment or criticism and/or blaming others.

Combining meditation, reflection and exercises from Kristin Neff, Tara Brach and Louise Hay, this workshop will include:
βœ… A guided #Meditation on Nurturing Seeds of Safety
βœ… #Mirrorwork + #Affirmations
βœ… Sharing on the Yin and Yang of Self Compassion
βœ… Understanding the roles and objectives of the #InnerCritic and #InnerNurturer
βœ… Self-soothing body #Movements

Research shows that self-criticism is associated with increased stress, fear of failure, and avoidant behaviours. Stress can affect our health; and result in chronic pain or illnesses.

One way of managing stress is by practising self compassion. Self compassion is a way of relating to ourselves, especially in challenging times. It essentially means treating ourselves with the same kindness and acceptance that we may already be extending to others; and accepting our own strengths and imperfections equally.

Self compassion is a skill that can be cultivated and strengthened through practice.

Studies suggests that a compassionate lifestyle leads to greater psychological well-being. Those of us who are able to be more accepting of our shortcomings tend to have:
πŸ’‘ a greater sense of competence
πŸ’‘ a lesser chance of procrastination-related stress
πŸ’‘ higher reported levels of optimism, motivation and resilience
πŸ’‘ reduced feelings of isolation or disconnection

This Self Compassion Series Workshop is designed for those who are seeking to:
βœ… Explore new insights and perspectives to practise cultivating #SelfCompassion
βœ… Strengthen your practice in #Mindfulness and #Compassion
βœ… Shift #Mindset from self-criticism / judgment / blaming to #Abundance and #Motivation
βœ… Develop habits to build #Resilience towards stress, strengthen immune response, maintain #EmotionalBalance and reduce reactive anger
βœ… Meet #LikeMinded people who prioritise self care and well-being

There was a whole bunch of exercises that we got a lot of 'Aha' from. And the visuals were amazing. So thank you girls for working so hard to put this together. It's phenomenal. And you really are very authentic and genuine. - Dianna Lane

I enjoyed today's workshop. Inner critic is something which I struggled a lot from childhood to now. Thankfully w spiritual practice, I'm learning to reprogram my mind. The step 4 reflection in your workshop gave me a new aha moment πŸ˜‰- Kathleen Poon

The experience I have with the letter to myself was a refreshing experience. I was writing in journal but it was with reference to another person. To write a letter with compassion, was harder because you hold back criticism about your own and try to see the best in yourself. It feels like you are lying at first. But if you re-read your letter, you began to see perhaps, you are the way you describe... - Rachel Brooke

I didn’t get the chance to talk about the positive points but it’s a job well done! Congratulations for putting them together! I would say it's a good job because I wanted to do the exercise for 2 years and didn't get a chance to try it, I thought there is real there because it did changed me so keep it up. - Anonymous

The activity gave me insight that I haven't been that compassionate towards my well-being as much as I would like to believe that I was. I ended up being a bit emotional after reading the letter again as a receiver rather than the writer and clearly shows how easily we can give compassion towards other people but rarely on ourselves. I will try to keep an active reminder to put myself first from time to time. - Adrissa Adam

Sound good to you? We can't wait to practise self compassion with you. RSVP with Vic at +60165931762 or DM us soonest for the zoom link. See you soon! =)

With Love,
