To find out more about some of the philosophies and practices behind this workshop you might want to watch Steve's TEDx talk on learning to dance with the Inner Critic here.
NOTE: This work can be extremely rewarding, liberating and challenging. It requires a degree of resilience and capacity for self support in the face of inner criticism which can be painful to see and experience. We expect participants to be able to support themselves in the face of these challenges and would like to invite you to consider your levels of support before signing up for the programme. If you would like to speak to Steve our Simon before signing up then please contact us.
