Moving Beyond Criticism and Defense

Moving Beyond Criticism and Defense

July 30 & 31, 2022
1-4pm PT

This online weekend workshop is open to anybody who has ever felt defensive or has dealt with a partner that gets defensive. You are welcome to join as a couple or as an individual.

In a small group we will identify stressful thoughts around criticism and defense and question those. By using the Work of Byron Katie we will expand our understanding about what happens in those moments of criticism and defense and find new ways of communication.

What happens when we feel criticized? Has that ever felt like an attack? Have you felt you wanted to defend yourself? Explain yourself? Attack back? What happens in those moments?

The Work of Byron Katie is an amazing tool to understand those dynamics and to show a different way that is more connected and more peaceful.

Additional Information

“It is a pleasure working with Judith. Her calm presence and connection with me as well as the other participants is inspiring. Judith has the unique ability to both lead and participate alongside the other members of her retreats, creating an environment that is warm, welcoming and available. My time working with Judith during a weekend retreat was both fun, dancing and laughing with other participants as well as serving. The light environment helped me open to many beliefs I didn’t realize were running in the background- and i’ve been doing the work for many years now!” - Laura K.

"Judith does a beautiful job of holding space–her abundant care and warmth are palpable. This workshop was mind- opening in ways I hadn’t expected, and I’m still amazed at the depth and breadth we covered in just two days. Don’t miss this one." –Marisa Handler
