About this event

The words narcissist and 'toxic person' are being thrown around a lot lately.

According to the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), a narcissist is defined as someone who has:

A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love. A belief that he or she is special and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions. A need for excessive admiration. A sense of entitlement.

Whilst I'm sure we can all identify some of these traits in others, it can be very damaging to incorrectly assign a label to someone, especially one that carries so much weight on a social and relationship level.

Instead of pathologising people's behaviours, we're curious to know if we can approach them with more compassion and objectivity and actually label them for what they are. Sometimes these traits are a result of not having emotional intelligence

In this workshop, we'll help you:

  • identify the difference between a narcissist and someone who is emotionally immature;
  • increase trust in your own judgements of other people;
  • develop your compassion & find the good in others;
  • learn simple body-based exercises for increasing our connection to our bodies.

Rather than giving you a lecture on the theory of the above, this workshop will be highly practical and you'll learn more about yourself, your patterns and your behaviour.

Why is embodiment important in relationships?

You can’t feel another person if you don’t feel what’s happening in your body. How we feel another person is through paying attention and recognising the sensations in our body. We feel our own body in response to the other body, we feel our own emotions in response to their emotions. That feedback mechanism gets disrupted if you are not sensitive. Responsiveness within yourself translates to responsiveness to outside yourself.

Invest 30 minutes in yourself to improve your compassion, relationships, energy levels, time management, and overall happiness & wellbeing.

Keep learning with us

Every first and third Sunday of the month, Centrd Life host a free workshop to help you cultivate a stronger connection to your bodily sensations and as a result, improve your emotional awareness.

As we go through this journey together, we help you strip away layers of habitual behaviour that once helped you cope and develop better habits in line with who you can be.

With these new habits, we learn to set boundaries without building walls, create better relationships with ourselves and others and become better & compassionate leaders.
