From Comparing to Caring
own and appreciate your own body
What do you see when you look into the mirror? ls a loving and kind person looking back at you or do you only see what is not there: your legs are not thin enough or long enough, your skin is starting to age, your hair is not long enough, curly enough or straight enough, etc. etc. The list is endless. With those observations come feelings of unworthiness, shyness, blame and shame. Everybody around you seems to have what you lack.
As a result you cover yourself up or wear 'favourable' clothes instead of the clothes that you adore. Maybe you become obsessed with food and exercise, counting calories, steps and ways of transport. Unawares you might even withdraw from life, not doing the things that you love to do.
In this online workshop you will go on a gentle journey within, looking at the thoughts, discussions and beliefs that are filling your head. With the help of The Work of Byron Katie you learn how to stop comparing your own body and reclaim the beauty and love for yourself. With that, your body will become your loyal companion again.
From Comparing to Caring takes place on 3 Wednesdays starting November 10th, 2021 and finishing November 24th. Each of the 3 sessions starts at 19:00 hrs and finishes at 20.30 hrs. The maximum number of participants is 12 to ensure an intimate setting. The sessions are held via Microsoft Teams. A phone or computer is all you need to participate.

From Fighting to Forgiving
making your relationships more loving
How often are you distracted or lying awake in bed because you had a fight with someone? It interferes with your life and takes your attention hostage. “He does not listen …, she should not have done that …, I can’t believe they …” Your thoughts run wild and the story keeps growing on you. Even when these people are not around you, they are in your mind and mess with your peace ….
The way we normally deal with these differences of opinion is by pushing back harder, explaining ourselves ever clearer and finding all kinds of reasons why we are right and the other is wrong. Sounds familiar? Wouldn't it be wonderful to find another way? To meet the other from a place of love and kindness?
In this online workshop you will go on a gentle journey within, looking at the thoughts, discussions and beliefs that are filling your head. With the help of The Work of Byron Katie you learn how to find peace of mind and feel connected to the people around you again. With that, the joy of partnership finds a new place in your heart.
