Topic: Making friends with your Inner Critic
How can we work with the Inner Critic?
Are we able to recognise the Inner Critic not as the truth, but as a single voice among many?
The Inner Critic reviews our mistakes endlessly, in an attempt to prevent future errors or failures. It believes that the best way to ensure our happiness is to berate us about our short comings. It doesn’t realise that it is also stealing away our innate capacity for happiness. As we grow older, it can infiltrate our mind so thoroughly that we don’t realise that we have fallen into a pervasively negative pattern of thinking about ourselves. When this happens, people begin to think of themselves as “defective” or “broken.”
The retreat will look at ways of understanding how the Inner Critic arises and developing techniques for befriending it.
