A 2 day workshop on narcissistic wounding and shame.
Do you want to develop a deeper working understanding of narcissism and the narcissistic wound?
Do you want insight into how working with compassion (for self and clients) can support unfoldment?
The patterns, behaviours and defences of narcissism impede our relational ability. This workshop will explore narcissistic wounding and shame through the experiential use of a thought provoking and easy to translate model. The model taught in this workshop supports clearer, compassionate understanding of the origins, encompassing processes and consequences of this behaviour, and how it challenges us to stay in contact with our soul.
The group will ground their learning and development on day 2 with time spent on experiential group process, exploring our own relationship to the patterns of narcissistic wounding.
