Critic Camp

August 28 - August 30

- $650.00

Workshop Description:

Everyone seems to have some type of internal critic that has learned to protect us by being harsh in some way. They tend to want to make sure we are not too vulnerable, lazy, incompetent, or rejectable. These harsh tactics create considerable anxiety, shame, and/or rebellion in our system. Given that these Parts tend to be major players, they enforce driving our system with fear-based motivation, anxiety, or rigidity. They decrease our feelings of joy, spontaneity, aliveness, and overall they block our ability to know what we truly want in life. In addition, the presence of untransformed critics can impede our healing process and quest to be more Self-Led. 

These parts often do not just limit their activity to one’s internal system but can expand into our significant relationships with destructive consequences. These parts can injure people we care about and although their intention is to protect, their impact causes harm. Working with these Parts and often the more vulnerable Parts they protect can prepare one’s internal system for deeper healing and unburdening.

The learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Describe how Inner Critics develop
  • Identify three key interventions for healing Inner Critics
  • Describe the nature of harsh Protectors
  • Identify how these Parts function in the system
  • Develop two essential IFS skills, Insight and Direct access, to work with Inner Critics
