Our inner critical voice and ‘should’ statements
Living Better with Yourself – Course 5
How many times have you found yourself criticising yourself, using comments like: “That’s so stupid of me!” or similar? Have you found yourself thinking in terms of should statements, both in relation to yourself, others and life in general? Then this course might be a good step towards more freedom and wellbeing!
Most of us develop an inner critical voice that we carry along into our adulthood, a voice that puts us down, makes us smaller. We often also carry statements about how things should be, how others should be behaving, how we should be feeling or what we should be doing. Yet, these all block us from the freedom to be ourselves. In this course we get to know a bit more these constraints and use different ways to loosen their grip on us.
Come and join us for this online course and explore this topic with others who are on a similar journey to yourself!
This course is one out of a series of online courses aimed at helping you live better with yourself by getting to know yourself better and become more embodied in your personal growth.
The series of courses consists of:
- My body as anchor when dealing with stress
- Balancing out my thoughts and my emotions
- Engaging with my fear and anger
- Shame, guilt and our shadow sides
- Our inner critical voice and ‘should’ statements
- Safety, vulnerability and our quest for control
The series of courses compliments the self-development journaling book entitled “Living Better with Yourself – A Practical Guide to Embodied Growth” written by ourselves. The book contains extra material and many other exercises that you can use to further the experience you’ve had on this course. You can find more information about the book and order a copy here.
The courses are held online using Zoom with a small group of other people who are also on a similar journey to yourself and with whom you have the opportunity to share this moment of growth, while also learning from each other.
You can join any course at any time and in any order. It is, however, recommended that you first join us for the course “My body as anchor when dealing with stress”, as we offer some fundamental tools that can be useful for the other courses. This is why this course is offered twice throughout the duration of the series, in order to make it easier for new people to join on two different dates.
The courses are interactive allowing for sharing of experiences with the other participants. There will be some activities, discussions, as well as some input about the topic. Some of the activities invite you to move so try to ensure that you have some space around you. Also, you might require some material for the exercises (e.g. some sheets of paper or things to draw with), so please, have a look at the materials required prior to starting the course.
The courses are run in English.
Each course lasts 2.5 hours (19:00 – 21:30 CET).
