This workshop will explore the nature of shame, how it is created, and how it underlies and reinforces addictive behaviors. Through creative expressive exercises, participants will explore and release inner darkness, and learn to consciously engage self-compassion and self-love. The process will explore concepts of containment, safety, mindfulness, challenging the inner critic and how to move from isolation to connection in order to heal.
