    Do you have a hard time saying no to things you don’t want to do?

    Do you feel that people are always taking advantage of you?

    Do you find yourself always needing to please people?

    Do you have a hard time knowing what you want, making decisions or being clear on your desires?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need boundaries!

    Why, you ask?

    Well, imagine that your internal world - your emotions, thoughts, desires, needs - is a village. In order for your village to thrive and create the life you want for it, it needs to feel safe and protected. And it can only do that when it has a clear protection around it, one that defines what’s OK and not OK to enter your village.

    Without a clear boundary, your village is always being invaded.

    And villages don’t like being invaded.

    So often we end up resentful towards ourselves and others because we can’t say no or clearly state our needs.

    Learning to set a boundary does not mean you have a walled off village that isn’t able to interact with other villages.

    It simply means creating a safe container from which to create, thrive and love without losing ourselves in what others want or expect from us.

    According to boundaries expert Chad Buck, a clinical psychologist at Vanderbilt University, boundaries lead to:

    ♥ More self-awareness and self-care

    ♥ More assertiveness / confidence

    ♥ More trust in self and others

    ♥ More compassion towards self and others

    ♥ Healthier relationships

    ♥ Less likely to burn out / less stress

    ♥ Less anger / resentment

    This workshop is based mostly on Acceptance on Commitment Therapy (ACT), a mindfulness-based behavioral approach, and the work of Brené Brown, Harriet Lerner and Karla McLaren.

    You will leave this workshop with a clear idea of how to start setting boundaries in your own life so you can have healthier relationships with yourself and others.
