A New Way to Treat Addictions and Compulsions

If we were to peel back, one layer after another, to the root of what now seems to be an unruly beast, we often find a tiny, fragile, tender seed of deprived need.

Because of their innate excitabilities, and the capacity to absorb and process a vast amount of information, they need a consistent supply of rigorous, ‘good quality’ stimulations, from a multitude of sources.

“MY CBT therapist told me those were ‘irrational thinking,’ which made it worse- now I just blame myself;”

“ I have gone through my childhood trauma many times, but when I argue with my partner, I still behave like a five-year-old!”

"Do People Hate Me?" - Surviving Judgement, Criticism and Rejection when you are a Non- Conformist

How can you be yourself, even when you are different?   Can you live with full integrity, without being attacked or annihilated? 

We shall explore how to survive situations and conventional settings in which you don’t neatly ‘fit in,' or even inadvertently attacked or put down.

What do you do when no one is watching? 
With whom do you feel most at ease?

Can you feel truly belonged, if you are not being yourself? 

Here is the news:

You are allowed to tell someone you are angry, annoyed, frustrated, even when there is no ‘justified,' ‘logical’ reason.

You do not need anyone’s permission for all the intensity inside of you to come up and come out.

If we can face and accept this, we can access the deep peace that is within us.
