A two-part workshop in which the eight activities within the workbook are split in half.
Part One: First step in “blossoming” into one’s healing journey is examining those roots. We will examine the root causes to triggers, fears, and negative self-talk.
Who should register?
- Folks who feel like they aren’t living as their authentic selves
- Folks who are hiding behind fear, doubt, and negative self talk when it comes to being their authentic self
- Folks who have adopted pathologies stemming from generational trauma that are unsure of how to unlearn the behavior so that they can be their authentic self
Goals for Part One:
- Establish awareness of the pain points (root causes) that have caused the participant to have the triggers she has
- Establish awareness of how the triggers affect the participants’ thoughts and behaviors
- Identify the person/people who have projected the negative thoughts/self talk that the participants hold
- Identify the root cause to why the participant feels she cannot be her authentic self professionally, academically, spiritually, socially, etc.
Part Two: After examining the roots we’ll start focusing on tilling the soil (continuing with the plant analogy). We’ll discuss doing two letter writing exercises—one that validates and honors our inner child and another that inspires us to be committed to doing the work to become the healed version of ourselves that we envision. These letters to the “old” self and “new” self are acts of self-love and self-commitment. The third activity is about reframing who we were told or believed we were to who we actually are. The last activity is writing out affirmations.
Goals for Part Two:
- Spark a shift in the mindset of the participants so that they become solution focused
We highly recommend that you register to attend both sessions to get the maximum benefit. However, it is not a requirement.
