The ART of Imperfection

“Perfectionism is a 20-ton shield we carry around hoping it’ll keep us from being hurt while in truth, it keeps us from being seen.” 

~ Brene Brown

Putting the shield down sounds so easy and so damn obvious. But many of us have learnt to respond to that effort by simply trying harder. To push through. In our experience, if it wasn’t working how we wanted it to, then clearly we weren’t doing it right or trying hard enough.

That immensity of self-vigilance and control suck up so much energy that it’s hard to have enough left over for creation or love. Perfectionism kills ease and spontaneity. There’s no flow with the deadweight of perfectionism. If that feels familiar, you are not alone. 

In this  webinar, we’ll explore:

    • Where our perfectionism comes from
    • How we can cultivate greater acceptance, even gratitude, for it
    • How we redefine our relationship to this part of ourselves

And we’ll use the 5 practices of Authentic Relating in support of connecting more deeply with ourselves, with others, and with what matters most to us in life.

In the ART of Imperfection, we’re not seeking to change anything. You’re good enough as you are. You don’t have to change yourself to change your life. Self-improvement is not required here.

Instead, we will bathe our tender souls in the soothing medicine of welcoming everything as we question the stories that constrain us and design a new relationship with ourselves, including our perfectionist tendencies.

Come join us!
