Reclaiming Your Gold Star

Saturday, May 28, 2.5 hours. This workshop is for: Everyone. In this live 2.5-hour Zoom workshop, you’ll explore your relationship with external praise and learn skills to shift your inner sense of worth so it aligns more with your authentic self.


“You get a gold star!”

When you read or hear this phrase, what do you feel?

For many of us, we learned to cultivate our habits and behaviors in childhood according to the expectations and values of the adults around us. And sure, many of those ideas may have served us well. But have all of them?

Whether we worked to please our teachers in school or our caretakers at home, if we learned to judge our value by pleasing others, we often face problems as we become adults who try to live our own lives and honor our own internal sense of what is right for us.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this mini-workshop, dual-licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® professional Sherry Olander will help you learn to identify and shift those old ideas to better serve you in your own life today.

In this mini-workshop, we’ll explore:

  • Your inner rules or “contracts”
  • Where these contracts came from
  • The difference between internal and external shame messages
  • Skills to update the rules you live by now that help you feel content and satisfied with who you are today
