About the Compassionate Inquiry process:

The process of Compassionate Inquiry invites you to look at the stories you tell yourself unconsciously, and to recognise how these stories direct your life, affect your health, and generate suffering. Once you recognize the beliefs you have been carrying and where they originated, you can question the validity of those beliefs. Once questioned, you can open to the possibility of releasing identification with them, and of the hold they have on you. A new way of being emerges, leading to spontaneity, choice, expansion and freedom.

Created for:

Anyone above the age of 18 years seeking to heal their trauma, along with healthcare professionals who wish to develop their personal and professional skills.
