Shame is one of the most misunderstood concepts on the planet today. In this in depth workshop, author and speaker Teal Swan discusses why shame is not an emotion, but a biological affective reaction. Shame can be triggered when someone with whom we need closeness, such as a parent or guardian, is perceived to have pushed us away. We may feel that our survival depends on our rejecting this part of ourselves. Teal will explain why shame is the mechanism for internal fragmentation in which we split off from parts of ourselves. The more aspects we push away, the lonelier we are. Teal will show a way to bring all aspects of ourselves closer, as part of oneself.
