About the Event
What do I feel? What do I need? What can I do?
Those are the quintessential self-compassion questions. And to answer these questions, sometimes we need to know what we value most in our lives - our core values. Research has shown that affirming our core values enhances self-compassion.
Human needs and core values are fundamental to our sense of well-being. Human needs are commonly associated with physical and emotional survival, such as the need for health and safety or connection, whereas core values have more to do with meaning, such as the importance to us of friendship or creativity.
Needs and values overlap. And both are essential for our survival.
When our needs are unmet, or we do not honor our values, a sense of discomfort, a void, starts crawling inside. And when that feeling persist, we might, unconsciously, start looking for ways to fill the void.
Join us for this practice-oriented session to dive deep into your values and understand how those can be extended to your relationship with food and your body.
This session requires your full presence in the Zoom rooms. Please only register for this event on this page if you are going to be able to be fully present in the meeting.
