WOMEN'S THERAPY GROUP

 In this psychotherapy group a variety of mindfulness based skills will be reviewed to help us better understand our emotions and experiences that lead us to feel shame/unworthy.  We will learn to balance acceptance and change to live more satisfying, peaceful lives.

We will focus on healing our shame and welcoming a range of emotions by incorporating these elements:

-instead of thinking of ourselves as broken or damaged considering ourselves to be wounded and in need of healing
-moving from self-disgust to budding compassion
-deepening awareness for the themes in our relationships, their origins and how they help or hurt us
-learning to share parts of ourselves that have been silenced and hidden in supportive relationships

Each session will include: 

-Meditation practices for "householders" rather than practices based on monastic tradition. We will learn to cultivate joy in our life, gratitude, curiosity, and compassion. We will learn to befriend our emotions and thoughts and welcome more of ourselves to live a fuller life. 

-Some type of psychoeducation to help tolerate distress, regulate emotions,  build shame resilience, increase flexible thinking and/or become more interpersonally effective

-Opportunities for discussion and processing issues from our daily lives

-Learning how we experience emotions through sensations, body movements, action urges, images, and thoughts

Group meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6:30 to 7:50 pm (except August 2018 which is 1st and 4th Wed)
