Yesterday I launched an online course that I am SO EXCITED to share. This has been brewing in me for a while and it's time to bring it out to the light! This 8 week course introduces nonviolent communication and how we can harness it and self empathy to deepen our self love. Spaces are quite limited because I’m offering such personal and direct support through coaching, so sign up ASAP. I aim to start on April 9th so registration will close on April 4th.
As I was writing the welcome email to those who have already signed up (yay!), I felt touched by my own authentic sharing. When I sat down to write this, I definitely didn't plan to share so deeply, so quickly. But that's the beauty of a commitment to living authentically: realness comes out when we don't expect it, in small and simple ways. I am sharing that welcoming letter below, because I think it provides a window into the power of engaging a practice self love and a taste of what this course is about.
I am so excited to welcome you to this course. Working with this information over the past few years has drastically improved my self esteem. I've always felt that the choice to love myself was a radical act, a defiance in the face of a world that profits off of fear, sadness and self-rejection. But it wasn't until I started applying these principles from nonviolent communication in the form of a practice of self-empathy that I began to notice a shift.
