If you totally accepted yourself just as you are, without changing anything, would you have any problems?
“In self-love you will start becoming more and more relaxed. A person who loves himself is totally relaxed.” Osho
Opening to Self-Love helps us confront the beliefs and fears that stop us from being loving and compassionate to ourselves and to others.
When we focus awareness on the mechanisms of self-rejection, they start to fade away. This allows us to open to our unique beauty, to rediscover our essential value; to open up to positive, loving relationships with others.
The Opening to Self-Love process is based on individual, paired and group exercises, designed to bring our inner critics into the light of awareness. Our approach is light-hearted and loving so that the energy tied up in negativity can be gently released into creativity.
Group sharing allows us to see that we all have similar beliefs that get in the way of our self-acceptance and to see that we are all sensitive, human, and worthy of love.
When we open up to loving ourselves we find that our meditation deepens and happens more easily.
“The more you love yourself, the less you will find of the self in you, and then it becomes a great meditation, a great leap into God.” Osho
