Dismantle Your Inner Critic, Live Your Brilliance
by Joy Caffrey

Do you have a critical voice in your head that prevents you from thriving? Does your self-doubt hold you back? Do you toss and turn at night when you inner critic is working overtime?

This workshop provides a framework for understanding how you escalate your own suffering by letting your inner critic get the best of you. You will identify the “who” and “how” of your inner critic and learn the essential art of reframing. You can learn to make radiance a conscious and creative choice rather than repeatedly sabotaging yourself. You can use this awareness to reach deeper levels of compassion for yourself and others.

You will explore your conscious and unconscious behaviors and energy patterns. You will work with specific exercises to diminish fear, shame, guilt, and your inner critic. You will be given tools to reduce anxiety and depression, and increase energy and clarity.

Joy will guide you through six steps necessary to effectively dismantle you inner critic so that you can live your brilliance. During this playful and interactive workshop, you will learn through a combination of discussion, guided mediation, and creative exploration.

Class format:  4-hour class and/or full day. Course certificates for CEUs for social workers will be available upon request.


Every Encounter is an Energy Exchange: An Introduction to Human Energy Dynamics
by Joy Caffrey

Are you a sensitive person? Are you sometimes aware of other people’s energy, for better or worse? This workshop provides a framework for understanding how we interpret and use energy — to help us or hurt us — in our everyday interactions with our co-workers, clients, friends, and families. It teaches us to perceive the five basic energy movements of push, pull, stop, contract, and diffuse. You can learn to observe when you are using your energy defensively or radiantly. You can learn how to make radiance a choice versus a defaulting into defense.

The workshop will teach us how to correlate this information to the five core character structures of Schizoid, Oral, Masochist, Narcissist, and Rigid. We will increase self-awareness, strengthen interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, and deepen our capacity for compassion.

Class format:  4-hour class and/or weekend intensive. Course certificates for CEUs for social workers will be available upon request.


Clarify and Heal Your Relationships: Dissolving Dysfunctional Power Cords
by Joy Caffrey

Do you feel powerless, unheard, or criticized in a relationship with your mother, father, spouse, ex-spouse, child, or boss? Would you like to bring more understanding, mutuality, resilience, respect, compassion, and healing into a particular relationship?

On an energetic level, we have energy cords that connect us to the individuals we are with, or have been with, in any form of relationship. In this workshop we explore the effects of these energetic power cords. Using active visualization, we will release any dysfunctional power cords that have left you feeling disempowered. And we’ll deepen your sense of connection, both to yourself and in your relationships. Joy will demonstrate the ways she has used this work in her healing practice, where she has seen immediate benefits from this easy-to-learn technique.
