While relationships can and certainly should enhance our lives, the most important – and most sacred – relationship we have is the one we have with ourselves. This often gets neglected in the search for a single romantic relationship, where we hope to find all the different loves existent in the world wrapped into a single person. In fact, it is in this longing for intimacy and companionship with someone else that we sometimes lose ourselves.
Relinquishing our attachment to the long-held belief that there’s one person out there who is going to complete us and make us happy is easier said than done. We’ve been conditioned to think that meaning and happiness come from a loving, lasting union with someone else instead of from within.
In this Power Boost we’ll debunk the notion that we are incomplete halves. I’ll share insights and wisdom I accrued on my soul-searching dating detox, and how to return to wholeness. We’ll discuss overcoming destructive patterns and self-defeating behaviors, and re-channeling our energy towards positive and self-nurturing practices.
Through this workshop, you’ll begin to identify yourself as ‘the One’ – loving yourself in the way you’ve longed to be loved, and embracing your very own wholeness as a self-sustaining living and breathing being. Self-love is the most essential precursor to loving someone else.
It is not just about letting go of the bad stuff, but about filling up with the good, nourishing, life-affirming stuff that we have regular access to—community, nature, creative self-expression, opportunities for adventure, deep friendships, spirituality. My goal is to help you shed practices and ways of thinking that don’t serve you and replace them with practices and ways of being that do.
