** This is a FREE group with no connection to ANY organization or ANY religion or ANY belief system. **
** This group is hosted by a volunteer...me...and I want to help you. **
I learned to Love myself and you can too. But...it is not easy.
What does it mean to Love yourself? We have heard all our lives that we should Love ourselves - so much in fact that it really has no meaning that most are capable of discerning. Furthermore, even if we try to Love ourselves - if we don't know HOW to Love ourselves - the task is almost impossible.
The purpose of this group is to learn how to Love and accept ourselves; To obtain a deep understanding of what that truly means. By Loving ourselves completely and unconditionally, we can discover and experience happiness and joy. As we learn to Love ourselves, we begin to 'awaken' to the truth of our existence in Society, the World and perhaps the Universe.

-- This group is not a touchy feely group ... it involves serious emotional interaction and a LOT of deep thinking into your current and past feelings --
***** IF YOU PARTICIPATE YOU WILL GROW IN A POSITIVE WAY ******
There are no fees, no gimmicks, no secrets and no surprises for this group. You may come to the meetings and just listen -- that would be wonderful. If you choose to participate, you will grow....I promise. Participation thinking ... and that's about it .... -- everything will be up to you.
I have spent the majority of my life NOT loving myself (history of addictions of all kinds and abusiveness to me and others), and since July 2013 have been engaged in being taught how TO Love myself by a wonderful therapist Pamela Sherbrooke. You will hear a LOT about Pamela. She is very significant in my life and has passed on her knowledge as my mentor - which I will do for you (if you find it useful). I will tell you everything that I have learned and pass on as much knowledge to you as I possibly can in the same way it was taught to me --- for free. I am donating my time, energy and effort - because I Love YOU!! I Love YOU -- even though we have not met.
I can honestly say that although I am still learning to Love myself, I do now Love myself more than I ever have in my entire life, and much more than the average person. This is based upon watching most people living lives of pain.
** What's in it for me? **
Simply the joy of helping others learn to Love themselves, and to learn more about how to Love myself.
I am not hosting this group to build a resume. I have no intention of ever becoming a therapist or psychologist. I have no intention of ever making money from this activity. I am ONLY doing it out of Love for you and for me. I do not accept any donations or compensation of any kind at all - other than the joy I feel at helping others.
