What is Befriending Yourself?
BEFRIENDING YOURSELF IS AN ONLINE COMMUNITY EXPLORING A CONTEMPORARY, EMBODIED, TRAUMA-SENSITIVE APPROACH TO SPIRITUALITY AND HEALING
Facilitated by Matt Licata, PhD, psychotherapist and author of A Healing Space: Befriending Ourselves in Difficult Times (Sounds True, 2020) and The Path is Everywhere: Uncovering the Jewels Hidden Within You (Wandering Yogi Press, 2017)
We meet live online three times each month for 75-90 minutes, including guided meditations and experiential exercises, teachings from Matt, live interaction, and time for you to ask Matt questions.
It is not required to join live and you can fully participate by watching the replay of the session and also downloading audio and written transcripts of each call. In this way, you can connect with the course content at a time that works for you, from the comfort of your own home.
We’re currently in a module now on working with the shadow and the lost pieces from the soul, from an embodied, trauma-sensitive perspective, which will last until the end of February 2021.
Starting in March of 2021, our new module begins on Resting Your Nervous System: Embodying a Trauma-Sensitive Spirituality and Discovering a Felt Sense of Safety. This module will last through June of 2021.
