“Self-love is the base of all possible love… Unless you love yourself, you cannot love anybody else.” Osho
Awareness the alchemy of transformation
When we focus our awareness on our habits of self-rejection, understanding arises and the energy locking those habits into place is released into awareness – we easily and naturally stop maintaining our self-negativity. This opens us to our unique beauty, to rediscovering our essential value, to positive, loving relationships with ourselves and with others.
“Be conscious, and the first ripple will be self-love. You will love yourself because you are closest to yourself. It has to start there, just as you throw a stone in a silent lake and ripples arise. First, they arise just around the stone and then they spread toward the bank, then they go on spreading.” Osho
Disarming the inner critic
The process is based on individual, paired and group exercises. Our approach is light-hearted and loving so that the energy tied up in negativity can be released gently into positivity and creativity.
We are all worthy of love, but we all have similar beliefs that get in the way of our self-acceptance.
By sharing with the group, we begin to see that we are not alone in our fear and self-doubts, it becomes easier to relax and let go of them and to feel more compassion and less fear around others.
When we begin to love ourselves, our meditation happens more easily and on a deeper level.
