Where is My Place?
Introduction to Authenticity, Shame and Belonging

with Sarah Peyton
Saturday, July 9, 2022
9:00am - 12:00pm Pacific (California) Time 

Do you ever have difficulty being sure you belong? Do you worry that you are too much, or not enough? How can Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and relational neuroscience give us a foundation for security and self-warmth, so that we can tap into our birthright of forever-belonging?

In this session, with gentle self-compassion, you will see how you can:

  • Use empathy to acknowledge your body’s truths about your history of belonging
  • Reclaim parts of yourself that have experienced trauma due to a lack of belonging
  • Explore the needs you are meeting by believing that you do not belong

It can be challenging to express ourselves honestly in a way that gives us confidence that we will be accepted and belong in all our inner beauty. If you have experienced painful internal backlash from shame when you attempt to express yourself earnestly, this introduction is for you. There is hope. You can have a warm sense of belonging while being authentic.
