WOMEN’S GROUPS

“The self-compassion daylong was so helpful! I love the variation between meditations, information, exercises, and sharing. I appreciate Tamara’s sensitivity to the group flow and the music for writing exercises. Since the daylong I have continued to feel the support from the exercises we practiced. They’ve kinda “come to my rescue” when I feel emotionally caught up and stuck.” ~SM, Art Teacher at a San Francisco Elementary School

INTERRUPTING INTERNALIZED OPPRESSION: QUEER WOMEN’S SELF-COMPASSION DAYLONG

SUNDAY, July 29, 2018 from 10am-5:30pm in Berkeley, CA

Daylong Registration Fee: $130

Please pay through Paypal: paypal.me/TamaraThebert/130


The Queer Women’s Self-Compassion Daylong is a group for those who want to interrupt & transform internalized oppression by creating a more compassionate environment internally and interpersonally. Group will include instruction, conversation, meditations, and exercises focused on awareness and empowerment through neurobiologically-informed principles and practices from the inner sciences of psychology and spirituality.

The internalization of oppression is a reflection of social conditioning with a number of mental health implications. When we devalue ourselves, we are unconsciously taking on the role of oppressor within and often experience self-judgment, self-doubt, and even self-hatred. This negative image we have of ourselves can lead to depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. In this daylong, you will be supported in uncovering and transforming this often unconscious internalized conditioning so that you can be more fully and compassionately present to yourself and others.


Participants will learn:

  • the manifestations of internalized oppression on psychological health
  • the connection between self-compassion and mindfulness in resisting devaluation and transforming internalized oppression
  • three components of and three ways to initiate self-compassion
  • neuroscience of emotional dysregulation and negativity bias
  • how to rewire your brain to entrain calm and positives states
  • formal and informal practices to enbrace worthiness by integrating mindfulness and self-compassion into your daily life
