Some of our goals:

Our high school years make up some of most dynamic times of our lives. It is a time of many first experiences. Often these experiences unfold in different ways then we first envisioned.  Seeing them as all part of a journey of growth on the way to enlightenment can be a challenge in itself.   On my journey I would have enjoyed and space to discuss openly what i was experiencing with out the worry of being judged and made to feel less than.  With this in mind we created “It’s OK To Be Me”. A virtual gathering space where we meet and teach/learn with each other as we journey from moment to moment.  Everyone deserves to have a voice and has a divine right to stand in their truth.  We provide that safe space and offer tools and ideas that you can take with you.

Some of Our Goals: 

  • Understand what our sense of belonging is all about
  • Provide a safe environment to learn to like ourselves
  • Learn to have healthier relationships
  • Create friendships
  • Open ourselves to new ideas on the path to enlightenment

Who Should Attend?

All of the ages 14-18.

The benefits of compassion training are:

There have been many identified and researched benefits of self-compassion which can all be related to emotional resilience. Emotional intelligence is linked with the ability to be aware of your emotions as well as being able to cope with them compassionately. When we are able to recognize our stress and practice self-care, we are able to motivate ourselves to navigate life’s challenges in healthy ways (Neff, 2011). Kristen Neff (2011) has examined many ways that self-compassion mitigates negative mindsets that can lead to emotional suffering. She explains that our brains have a negative bias that had evolutionary benefits by triggering fight and flight reactions. Current evidence demonstrates that getting stuck on our emotional distress is often rooted in feelings of shame and inadequacy. Self-compassion can neutralize this toxic dynamic by awakening feelings of warm and safety which then activates the mammalian caregiving system. Through this practice, the amygdala can be calmed. “People who practice self-compassion are less likely to suppress unwanted thoughts and emotions” (Neff, 2011) and people who practice self-compassion have a reduced risk for anxiety and depression (Neff, 2011).

What Is Mindful Self-Compassion?

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a self-care practice; it is not therapy. It is being mindful of yourself in the moment when you feel stress and/or a sense of inadequacy. It is understanding that stress and suffering are part of the common human experience; you are not alone. It is also [and most importantly] being able to hold ourselves in loving kindness.

Who Should Attend?

This training program facilitates the practice of MSC. It is open to anyone who wants to learn about and overcome a pattern of self-judgement. 

In this 8 week program you will learn through activities such as meditation, experiential exercises, group discussions and home practices.

In this workshop, we will explore  the subconscious mind role in our perceived experience in the physical.  We will journey with you to discover the hidden thoughts that are negatively impacting your ability to live a fulfilling life.   Many of our thoughts are very unloving, and these are preventing us to being fully ourselves.  

In this 2 hour workshop, you will: 

  • Learn the different ways we create our reality
  • Understand how the subconscious and unconscious mind are involved in manifesting
  • meditate to use love and compassion to assist you in your journey to self-discovery
  • Learn some tools on how to create from a more conscious level

Feedback

“In my personal experiences, I have observed how MSC assisted me with managing stress, in the moment on a daily basis. I often practice before bed and have become very aware of how much more quickly I am able to fall asleep and have a better sleep cycle [confirmed by my fitbit]. Often, I observe others in stressful moments and wish I could give MSC to them via osmosis . . . so look forward to helping people discover their peace and resilience through MSC”.
