Do you have a verse humming in your psyche that goes like this: “You’re not enough, you’re never enough, you’ll never be good enough?” Discovering your self-worth can change your tune. Using creativity, play, journaling, active meditation and reflection, we will set off on what Joseph Campbell refers to as the Hero’s Journey, to discover who we are and what we value in ourselves. Through this process of self-discovery, we can realize our true worth and not search for it in all the wrong places. No one will have power over us and we will have nothing to prove. By cultivating self-respect, we can then be able to cherish, honor and delight in our true Self! Led by Sara Waskuch, consultant, creative thinker and life-long student.
