Soothing the Inner Critic Workshop w/Lori Snyder

April 28, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm



Do you ever think you’re not good enough?
Or that you should have already finished what you’re writing,
Or that you’re waaaaay behind as a writer or human,
Or that you’ll never be as good as [writer you admire], so why bother,
Or that your process is lame,
Or that you don’t work hard enough, fast enough, or anything enough?
If you’re a writer, chances are you said yes to at least one of these. You probably already know how debilitating the inner critic can be when it comes to writing, let alone to the rest of our lives. After all, this internal voice can easily get in the way of us being our best, happiest, and truest selves.
But when we take the time to figure out what this voice actually wants, it not only begins to pipe the hell down; it also starts to do what it’s there for in the first place: help us.
This Writers Happiness workshop is all about understanding your own personal inner critic at its most fundamental. It’s also about gathering tools for soothing and quieting your inner critic… or, if that doesn’t work, locking it in another room when you need to so you can go about creating the work that only you can create.
Open to writers of any kinds or experience, this combination of lecture, discussion, journaling, breathwork, mindfulness, and compassion practices is designed to open up entirely new avenues for creativity, joy, and a quieter inner critic. Bring a notebook and pen and wear comfortable clothing.
