Workshop looking at shame
In this workshop, we will focus on what exactly is shame and the difference between guilt and shame. There will be opportunities to discuss and look at individual experience on shame, their foundation and sustaining propensities. The meaning of shame anxiety will be looked at and the restrictions these feelings place upon the individual, and if and how the feelings may connect to social anxiety and how we are in the world.
Time will be available for phenomenological examination of shame where each individual can look at their here and now experiences with particular reference to bodily feelings. The healing of feelings of shame will also be investigated as will opportunities to access different feelings and experiences.
This workshop will be a group experience, numbers will be limited to ten participants and the opportunities to look at group experiences and feelings toward each other will be available throughout the workshop. Group members will be encouraged to look at what they want from the workshop to facilitate the healing of feelings of shame.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet all participants individually before the workshop. There will be no charge for this meeting.
