Many of you have responded with enthusiasm to my email about the Shame Workshop on Feb 5, 2023. Thank you! I’m psyched and grateful for you many warm comments!
Many of you asked if a video would be available in case you are in some other time zone. The answer is
If you roister, you will get a link to the video of the workshop for one month following the live event, so you CAN watch if you are no in a different time zone or have conflicting responsibilities on February 5.
We will NOT be repeating this workshop, however. We always do fresh, new workshops, and only about two per year.
If you cannot come in person and watch the video, the main differences is that you won’t be able to participate in the three breakout groups involving small group practice of three of three of the techniques we will teach you. If you have a friend, you might even want to practice with that person during the breakout groups.
In addition, if you want American CE credits, you must attend in person.
Jill and I hope you can join us. If interested, move fairly rapidly as seating will be limited due to the breakout groups and we don’t want you to miss out.
I think you will LOVE this workshop and feel incredibly inspired by Melanie, who you will meet in the amazing video clips you’ll see. The transformation you’ll observe is real and pretty jaw-dropping. A true “Feel Good” story!
