Let Go of Self Criticism and Guilt


Let Go of Self Criticism & Guilt: Half-Day Meditation Course Saturday July 1, 10am – 1pm

1070 Tunnel Road, Building 2, Unit 20 (Behind Pomodoro’s), $20 or $15 Students/Seniors. Discounts for Monthly Members

Guilt can be very painful and even destructive. With guilt, we can find ourselves frequently reliving painful memories of the past which then negatively impacts how we live today. It is very common for us to be our own harshest judge and give ourselves a hard time over mistakes we have made.

When we develop guilt, we are identifying ourself as a bad or worthless person and this not only causes us a lot of pain but keeps us stuck in the same kind of behavior patterns.

On this course we will explore how we can separate ‘ourself’ from any undesirable behavior we may have, let go of guilt and set ourselves free to really live a much healthier and happier life. We will learn that the peace that comes with self-acceptance enables us to truly change. Everyone Welcome.

Schedule:

Session 1 – 10am – 11:!5

Break 11:15 – 11:45

Session 2 – 11:45am – 1pm
