Support Others, Normal Price, Discounted Price, Pay What You Can
Join us for this workshop where we will bring awareness and understanding to the beliefs that inform compulsive caretaking and disconfirm them with targeted meditation.
The intended outcome is to gain freedom from limiting beliefs.
This program is for people who are codependent or have preoccupied attachment.
This workshop will run twice in order to be accessible to people in different time zones. The content is exactly the same. You will get the access details for both after signing up.

This program is suitable for beginners to meditation and healing work.
This program will focus on working through negative early attachment conditioning especially as it relates to codependency and other-directedness. We will approach this from attachment theory and attachment repair perspectives.
We see insecure attachment as a pattern of beliefs made by emotional memories. We will explore these beliefs and how we can set new patterns through meditation.
Attachment Theory describes one of the earliest phases of our psychological development. It describes the behaviours of the infant from ages 6 months to three years of age when it ventures away from the caregiver to explore and then goes back to seek safety, affection, and care from the ‘secure base’. These early experiences imprint on us forming emotional memories (schemas) that go on to condition many aspects of life thereafter.
According to Jeffery Young “An early maladaptive schema is a pervasive self-defeating or dysfunctional theme or pattern of memories, emotions, and physical sensations, developed during childhood or adolescence and elaborated throughout one’s lifetime, that often has the form of a belief about the self or the world.” Jeffrey Young also calls the schemas “life traps”. These negative beliefs/expectations/schemas are core features of insecure attachment
Meditations (the primary experiential healing intervention in this course)
We’ll do guided meditations that address these traits of insecure attachment which cause us to be overly concerned with other people. These will include:
Additionally we’ll do “chairwork” (a type of parts-work similar to Internal Family Systems (IFS)) on our self-sacrificying parts to understand them better. We will see how based on our deeply held “emotional knowings” that there is a part of us that believes that “compulsive care taking” is necessary. Then we’ll have an emotionally corrective experience so that we no longer experience the self sacrifice as necessary.
There will be time for Q&A and spot coaching during the live event. The Q&A recording will not be made available thereafter. If you do not attend live, you will not have access to the Q&A.
We will be doing deep work. For that reason please feel free to take a break at any point.
There will be a few breaks for walking meditation, and brief instructions will be given.
This program is for those of us who...
Shared interest and social support can make meditation practice, study, and healing much easier. Make friends in the course on the slack channel and invite friends who you think could benefit to participate in the course.
These are some of the benefits you will have by the end of the program
