Shame can be your best friend

You can navigate a shame attack and make it work for you!

  • Discover how to transform and integrate shame triggers
  • Learn to handle requests you have been too embarrassed to make
  • Untangle shame from fear and open yourself up to vulnerability
  • Delve into what shame is and how our cultures keep it alive

Shame has gotten a bad reputation. And no wonder, as it seems to get in the way of courage, intimacy, and excitement, and becomes an obstacle in many people's lives.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

Shame CAN actually become your best friend if you handle it through the lens of your need for belonging, acceptance, and dignity.

During this course, we will redeem the life-serving purpose of shame! We will explore the reasons why the man behind NVC, Marshall Rosenberg, gave the following advice: "never do anything to avoid shame."  We will also look at how you may reclaim your power and choice instead of letting shame decide the limits of your life-space. For example, if I dream of singing in front of others and I don't because I feel too embarrassed, it is not the shame itself that stops me from singing, it is my unwillingness and maybe my inability to embrace and transform the feelings of shame into something beneficial.
