Understanding the power of the mind for healing after domestic abuse: the cycle of creation and breaking unhelpful patterns in our lives.
- Friday 12th November 12noon – 1pm via zoom
We all have subconscious beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that influence everything we do, whether we are conscious of it or not!
After we’ve been in an abusive relationship, we often have a negative view of ourselves and bringing awareness to our thoughts is the first step in being able to change them.
Remember, our thoughts are not ‘true’, they are just opinions and very often, they’re wrong! Your mind may be telling you that you’re ugly or stupid or make bad decisions or any number of other terrible lies, which are making you feel even worse about yourself!
In this workshop, you will learn more about ‘The Cycle of Creation’ – how we are very often creating the reality around us through our thoughts and actions – and how we can learn to speak more kindly to ourselves, by becoming more aware of our ‘self talk’. In addition, you’ll learn a powerful way to ‘reframe’ negative thoughts into more positive ones, to improve not only your mood, but your actual life!
Email email@example.com if you would like to take part.
