Making Friends with Criticism~
An Introduction to The Work of Byron Katie

September 8, 2019
9am - 6pm

“If you really want to be free, criticism from others can be a gift. Feeling hurt by any criticism, feeling the slightest urge to defend yourself, means that there is something you don't accept and love about yourself. This the very part of you that you want to hide. Hiding creates separation, from yourself as well as others.”  Byron Katie

In this workshop, we will explore criticism as a gift, using "others" criticism towards us as a light shining the Truth about our own self-judgments. Receiving other's words as a kiss instead of a slap, this workshop will integrate The Work, guided meditation, and specific exercises that will expose where we have not yet met ourselves with the deep acceptance, understanding and love that we may be seeking outside of ourselves.
