Many of us live with the constant "self-talk" of a harsh Inner Critic. The critic's voice thwarts our spontaneity, holds us hostage to anxiety, dampens freedom of expression, and keeps us feeling inadequate. While the critic's voice may be strong, it can be quieted.
This workshop will guide you to build new skills that counteract your negative self-talk while fortifying your resilience. It will introduce you to strategies that interrupt habituated pattern of self-denigration and retrain your brain to think in terms of positive self-support.
Join us to:
- Understand how and why your inner critic became so powerful
- Learn mindfulness strategies to counter the critic's voice
- Strengthen the voice of an inner coach
- Practice effective techniques for constructive "self talk"
- Explore the latest neuroscience on transforming thought patterns of self-sabotage to self-support
Through guided meditations, experiential exercises and interactive demonstrations, you will reach into the depth of your soul, open your heart, and uncover a nonjudgmental, compassionate inner voice. You will transform your relationship with yourself and return home inspired and empowered to take steps for successfully moving beyond your inner critic.

This is an interactive, conversational workshop that helps parents understand the factors influencing their children's self-esteem. Using this information, parents learn how to gently and deliberately help children bolster their self-esteem, develop a healthy relationship to food, and become resilient to harmful messages from outside sources, including the media and peer pressure. Throughout the workshop, parents learn how their children's ability to engage in constructive self-talk and self-care will assist them to lead a full and healthy life. Parents have ample time to ask questions, give examples, and learn to dialogue about the issues that their children face.

A workshop frequently presented at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
By Dr. Jane Shure and Dr. Beth Weinstock
We are bombarded daily with images of thinness and perfection, encouraging us to turn out bodies into civil war zones. The discrepancy between the idealized body and the real body often leads to body shame, self-judgment and disordered eating patterns. While negative feelings about our selves may be deeply embedded, they can be changed.
Join us as we:
- Present a model that explains the connection between current body-criticism and childhood wounds
- Help you create an inner coach that strengthens your body-esteem
- Teach strategies to resist self-incrimination and encourage healthy self-acceptance
- Share the latest research on the brain's role in reinforcing positive vs negative body image
Through guided meditations, writing and interactive demonstrations, this workshop will help you open your heart to self-compassion, calm the voice of your inner critic, and find a new way of relating to Your Body/Your Self.
