You came like a sweet bird to teach us.
You stayed like a warm mountain to teach us.
You left like fire and wind to teach us.
I came to study with you.
I stayed to study with you.
I will leave to study with you.

Healing Shame Core Workshop


Shame is a ubiquitous human experience. It is used in every culture to socialize children and to protect the tribe. Healthy shame has purpose, function and serves us by teaching us how to thrive in community. But toxic shame debilitates us and isolates us from humanity.  Releasing the underpinning of toxic shame restores vibrancy, self-esteem, resilience and self-reliance.
