Dr. Jim Wilder leads some brain training in this session to help us overcome shame. While you won’t be present with the group to practice in-person, you can certainly gain the knowledge and the exercises to use with a group you can gather.
Everyone is wired to feel shame; our heads drop, our faces flush, we feel poorly about something we have said or done. Everyone is also wired to respond to shame but cultures develop different styles of response and our culture has developed a style of masking shame.
