The Journey to Self-Love

As Carl Jung said, “The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” Often in our culture, women have not had the freedom to discover their own wisdom and gifts. Using the Expressive Arts, we will tap into our Inner Wisdom and the gift of creative knowing. We will use intuitive collage, journaling, and mandalas in this series. Each workshop will stand alone.

Topics include:
My Inner & Outer Self, Discovering the Gift of My Shadow, Identifying Needs/Acknowledging Feelings, Discovering My Voice, Self-Love

Project Self Compassion is a weekly support group created for teen girls who are interested in increasing self-awareness, cultivating inner strength, improving emotional resiliency and learning to better manage relationships. By sharing experiences in a group setting, members will gain the tools and strategies to help manage challenging emotions.

Self Compassion – teaches us to accept emotions –not judge them  or ourselves.

Self Compassion – allows us to open up and make room for all emotions – allowing them to flow freely through without evaluation or resistance.

Self Compassion – kindness towards ourselves — being as kind to ourselves as we are to those we care about.

Self Compassion – understanding we share a common humanity, acknowledging suffering of all people.  Suffering is not abnormal, but part of the human condition.

This group is led by Michaele (Shelly) Knous, MA, LCPC. Shelly works with individuals (adolescents, teens, and adults), couples and families, and always personalizes her approach to meet the therapeutic needs of her clients by combining conventional methods, along with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion.
