Zoom Workshop

Cost: Pay what you can! (suggested donation, if financially able, $20)

Shame impacts us for multiple reasons; however, the prime reason shame is so significant in our healing journies is that it glues itself to our identity. Instead of understanding guilt as “something bad happened,” we see ourselves shamefully as “I am bad.”

In this workshop, we learn how shame wraps itself into our healing journey and the intersection between shame and trauma. Lastly, we learn and practice strategies to combat shame from within ourselves and when others shame us. This workshop allows people to explore these connections and pain points in their present circumstances and teaches everyone how to combat shame in daily life. One-on-one and group work is an essential part of this workshop as this is where the necessary skills to combat internal and external shame are learned and provided.
