This session will discuss:

·      The neurological nature of the problem – it is an embedded thinking pattern.

·      How they emanate from the unconscious brain and not responsive to rational interventions.

·      That it is an endless driver of envy and creating a need for self-esteem to combat it.

·      They are one of the self-critical voices that are trying to protect you.

·      Some principles of effective approach:

o  Education

o  Gratitude is a nurtured trait – not positive thinking

§ Can’t outrun your mind – no end point

·      Some examples

§ Drop the battle

o  Expressive writing

o  Welcome in the unwelcome

o  Connect to the moment you are in.
