Moving Past Guilt and Punishment
As long as we're human we will make choices that seem to go against our best nature, and we will be tempted to call these mistakes. Shame, guilt and the fear of punishment will organically arise. What is the difference between consequence, punishment and amends? How do we refrain from the temptation to punish? How do we release guilt and shame without inflicting any more suffering on ourselves and others? How does the need for control play into punishment? When others make us responsible for their feelings as children it's easy to grow up believing that we are indeed the guilty party whenever any uncomfortable feelings are felt, even later as adults. Sometimes we feel so bad about ourselves that we sometimes unconsciously punish ourselves. In this meet-up I invite you to join me in a conversation in which we suspend judgement and we use curiosity to better understand and free ourselves from the draining tendencies to use guilt and punishment in our relationships with ourselves and others. This meet-up is hosted by Emotional Health Life Coach Diana Deaver. It's a discussion based group meet-up.

    What we're about

    This group is meant to facilitate an authentic and meaningful connection between people who are curious about their emotional health and well-being. Our meet-ups are experiential and discussion centered. Everyone gets an opportunity to share their personal experiences and be heard. Sometimes we have handouts, other times we do exercises that involve our senses. Our paid gatherings are small and intimate (12 or less) and they offer individualized emotional healing work. Our free meet-ups are larger groups, where we go around the table and get to hear a little bit from everyone.

    This group is best suited for:

    • people who wish to increase their emotional intelligence

    • people who are hurting emotionally and are seeking ways to heal

    • people who feel called to be part of a supportive community that encourages emotional well-being

    • people who want to discover more of their internal guidance and wisdom

    Examples of topics we will be exploring:

    • how how we experience, process and manage our emotions.

    • how we are impacted by our thoughts and beliefs

    • how we can heal and enhance our relationships

    • how we self sabotage or support ourselves
