Part of a Series sponsored by the Inner Science Institute:

SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES FOR MENTAL HEALTH


The Queer Women’s Self-Compassion Daylong is a group for those who want to interrupt & transform internalized oppression by creating a more compassionate environment internally and interpersonally. Group will include instruction, conversation, meditations, and exercises focused on awareness and empowerment through neurobiologically-informed principles and practices from the inner sciences of psychology and spirituality.

The internalization of oppression is a reflection of social conditioning with a number of mental health implications. When we devalue ourselves, we are unconsciously taking on the role of oppressor within and often experience self-judgment, self-doubt, and even self-hatred. This negative image we have of ourselves can lead to depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. In this daylong, you will be supported in uncovering and transforming this often unconscious internalized conditioning so that you can be more fully and compassionately present to yourself and others.


Participants will learn:

  • the manifestations of internalized oppression on psychological health
  • the connection between self-compassion and mindfulness in resisting devaluation and transforming internalized oppression
  • three components of and three ways to initiate self-compassion
  • neuroscience of emotional dysregulation and negativity bias
  • how to rewire your brain to entrain calm and positives states
  • formal and informal practices to enbrace worthiness by integrating mindfulness and self-compassion into your daily life

 

Modern scientific insights for the group are based on the work of Kristen Neff, Tara Brach, Janina Fisher, Daniel Siegel, Rick Hansen, and more.

Inner Science principles are based on the ancient wisdom traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism, including the contemporary applications of Mindfulness and Nondual Wisdom.

Learn this in a beautiful space!
