»A toxically shamed person is divided within himself*herself and must create a false-self cover-up to hide his*her sense of being flawed and defective. You cannot offer yourself to another person if you do not know what you really are.«
– John Bradshaw: Healing the shame that binds you
*or be of service to the world through your unique expression
Touching upon this topic in our other formats revealed the incredible potential of healing shame in the context of our work as writers and creatives. Sharing about this topic dissolves it as it comes out of hiding into the light. As the hiding serves the core of the shame, it’s not able to exist any longer, when shared with others.
This is a 30-minute meeting. We meet on Tuesdays at 09.30 h CEST. After a short input on the topic we share openly and from our direct experience, beginning in the here and now.
The meetings take place via Zoom.
You are invited to stay afterward for our Weekly Writing format, where we work on our literary projects in a shared space until 01.00 p.m.
