(Kripalu) Radical Self-Love: Heal Your Inner Critic [April 17-19, 2020]

How would your life be different if you treated yourself with the love, care, and kindness you always longed for?  And how would you treat others, and show up differently in the world, with this kind of love in your life?  Register here.


Learn how to use the practical tools of Nonviolent Communication to help transform negative patterns and self-talk into empowering choices based on your needs — free of blame, demand, guilt, and shame.


In this residential weekend program, you will learn how to:

  • Man meditating in park

    Transform your inner critic into your best friend.

  • Make decisions that truly meet your needs.
  • Move through regret and mourning to learning and celebration.
  • Shift from painful to life-serving behaviors.
  • Increase your authenticity, connection, and power.

While you are at Kripalu for this program, you can also participate in their yoga or meditation sessions or schedule a healing arts session (for an additional fee).

What does love look like, when put into action?  Join us to find out and transform your life!
