Part of you knows something has to change; you can see that the relationship isn’t good for you anymore. But as soon as you try to do something, difficult thoughts and feelings come up that pull you to stay put. These feelings can be so overwhelming that you’ll do just about anything to make them stop. Or you get caught in a constant inner dialogue arguing each side and end up confused about which thoughts to trust. Before you know it you’re stuck. And as if that isn’t hard enough, then you blame yourself for not being strong and just making a change!
As women, we’re vulnerable to this pattern. Our personal histories, reinforced by cultural norms, often make it challenging for us to stay attuned to our inner voice in the face of another’s conflicting needs. In this workshop we’ll practice mindfulness tools that will help you begin to develop fierce self love; the key to healing the core of this exhausting pattern. Any woman who identifies with this pattern is welcome to join us, whether the relationship is with a partner, boss, friend, or family member.
