Getting rid of Perfectionism
I had wanted to give a chronological account of my sophrology weekends, but I realise that that is the perfectionist in me raising its ugly head; and even more so the twin of procrastination.
So instead I shall write about the weekend that I have just enjoyed.
This was in Grenoble, with a group of ladies that I have go to know over the last year or so. We are now the second years. This weekend we worked on the RDC 4 and it was mind blowing, really really strong. It was also the first time I had fallen asleep during an exercise which really annoyed me. But that's life!
We worked on energy, and values. It made me think, really think, and not surprisingly what came up for me was individuality, the responsibility, but also the happiness....it's bit like flylady and flying, i.e. finally loving yourself. I also thought about Desiderata, that old studenty thing for me "I am a Child of the Universe" I found it in French, and shared it with the others on the second day. They loved it too....it is very sophro!
Sophrology brings together so many threads, and gives a way for me to actually do something. At the very very least I have learned some strong relaxation techniques, so strong I even fell asleep!
