Finding the Paradise Within: Techniques to Let Go of Self-Criticism

We're often so self-critical, thinking that's the thing that will get us to be the way we 'should' be. Only then will we have the things we want. Only then will our lives be perfect. Only then will we be happy.

But what if there was a way of living that left us feeling fulfilled no matter what's going in in our surroundings?

Finding paradise within means embracing all of ourselves as we are, uncovering the gifts already inherent in our way of being, and creating a joyful life from a space of fullness instead of beating ourselves up.

We will begin with Melody Kiersz's body-based techniques to start moving and releasing all the gunk that's covering up our shiny selves. Valerie Greene will then guide us through exercises to develop a harmonious relationship with all of those parts of ourselves that we generally don't like, so that we can let go of self-criticism and self-doubt. 

- Clarity and the ability to better digest life’s challenges as they come 
- No more second-guessing; you’ve reconnected to your inner guidance 
- Make the right choices with confidence, identifying and honoring your desires by asking for what you want 

Join us, and find the beautiful paradise that already lives within you!

This workshop is part of a series taught by Melody Kiersz and Valerie Greene leading up to their Paradise Found retreat in Belize, January 11-18 2014. For more information on the upcoming workshops and retreat, or to sign up for our weekly tips on finding your inner paradise, please go to

For close to a decade, Valerie Greene has worked with unfulfilled “seekers.” Valerie’s clients have found purpose amidst routine, exited dead-end jobs, breathed new life into spousal relations, crafted friendships from the ashes of bitter divorce, and attracted the right kinds of dating partners. 
Valerie’s unique style incorporates elements of coaching, NLP, and many other modalities. Working with Valerie to align your outer life to your inner purpose, you learn to tune into your emotions to clarify how to fulfill your deeper needs and values. You evolve your relationship with your inner critic and gain conscious communication skills. And most of all, you transform the burden of automatic reaction into a newfound freedom of choice.

Melody Kiersz is an integrated spirituality guide for those who are courageously navigating the tricky landscape where mysticism meets the modern world. She weaves holistic counseling, behavioral therapy, practical breath and energy work, movement, and shamanic and tantric traditions to guide her clients to release limiting beliefs, come home, and find the perfect blend and balance for them. Melody is the Founder of Naked Wellness, a boutique wellness practice dedicated to healing our relationship with our bodies, our selves and others, improving body image and self-esteem, increasing our ability to speak up, share vulnerably and responsibly, and create a life we love.
