Description:  Truth Heals. This workshop will explore how secrets can make you sick and how what you hide can hurt you.

Lies that keep us from acknowledging the truth can result in physical or emotional pain, debilitating shame, and deep layers of denial and anger. The lies we tell ourselves can cause emotional blockages and prevent joy and peace.

Telling the truth is about freedom. It is about health and living a life that is meaningful, powerful, connected, and loving. Ultimately, telling the truth is about feeling good in your own skin, unencumbered and free to be loved.

We will also explore the value of public testimony as a gift to the giver as well as the receiver.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore why people keep secrets and how the consequences can be destructive.
  2. Understand secrets as a symptom of shame-based relationships.
  3. How secrets can divide, triangulate and deter new relationships.
  4. When not to disclose secrets to avoid frozen development.
