INNER HARMONY: Letting Go of Self-Hatred and Self-Judgement

  • Do you want to live in harmony with yourself?
  • Finally get a handle on that obnoxious voice in your head?
  • Go through life with joy, integrity and compassion? 

Then join us for a languid, loving and safe exploration of these aspects of your inner landscape, their function and their origins. 

By laying bare these aspects of your inner life, they become less intractable, less aggressive. That makes it easier to then start integrating them into the fabric of your world, without anger or resistance, but from a place of genuine kindness.

So how do we go about this? Meditation is a start. Really, what we get involved with is a contemplation of our inner lives from a specific set of attitudes: kindness, gentleness, patience, compassion, joy and trust.

This can be a profoundly healing journey, allowing you to assume the role of both the healer and the healed. In this journey, there are no “shoulds”, there is no authority other than your own, and through it, you discover the awesome power of love.

Warning. This can profoundly change your life, if you come at it with an open, curious mind, and a strong determination to really get involved.

    2. Some questions

    Please answer the questions below to the best of your ability. They will not be used in the course, but they may serve as a preliminary exploration of how effective taking part in this course might be for you, personally.

    The suggestion is to really reflect on these questions before answering, even - especially - if you’re not used to thinking in these terms.

    The first question is meant to ascertain how you generally inhabit your life, not from any idealized perspective, but from the actual way you do it. “Should’s” don’t come into it, this question is about how you actually live your life. The second question measures the level of your commitment, while the third question sort of prepares you for some of the impediments to success.

    Do you view your life, or the world you inhabit, as a struggle, or as mostly harmonious processes?

    Engaging with these practices may mean temporarily setting aside some frames of reference that may have served you well in the past. Don’t worry, you’re not joining a cult, or a religious movement. Nevertheless, this process may run into some cognitive resistance, which makes it more difficult for you to get to where you want to go. To what extent are you prepared to temporarily set aside some of your frames of reference in order to get the most out of this course?
