Understanding The Inner Critic

April 5 - 6, 2024

Friday 6 - 9 pm and Saturday 9 - 4 pm

Through steady but gentle inquiry, we’ll explore the inner critic in a supportive environment and come to some understanding around its complexity, elusiveness, and misplaced intentions as well as its deeper purpose.

Building and healing our relationship with the inner critic is an unfolding practice, like zazen. There is no formula or one-size-fits-all. We’ll practice responding to the inner critic with a variety of tools using meditation and Dharma teachings, devotional ritual, creative practice, and group work.
