The Art Of Boundary-Setting Workshop

  • The Heart Center For Awakening 9640B 16th Avenue Southwest Seattle, WA, 98106 United States (map)

Boundaries are essential to our emotional wellbeing. They are the foundation of healthy relationships with ourselves and others. They build trust, strengthen compassion, and keep resentment at bay. In the words of Brené Brown: "The most compassionate people are often the most boundaried."

Yet as important as boundaries are, how many of us actually feel confident in setting them? Many of us struggle to be clear within ourselves about the boundaries we want, let alone communicate them gracefully. Sometimes we realize our boundary too late, when it's already been crossed and we've lost our temper. Other times, we know we need a boundary but put off setting it to avoid hurting someone's feelings or disappointing them.

How do we learn to set boundaries in an empowered yet caring way? How do we practice standing our ground around what we want (or don’t want) and yet still remain open-hearted? Boundary-setting may not be something you learned in school, but it’s a skill that can be taught, practiced, and mastered over time. It just takes tools, awareness, and places to practice.

Learning to set the boundaries we need has the power to rid us of so much of the anxiety, resentment, disconnection and conflict in our lives. It’s time to claim your voice, honor your truth, and step into a new level of empowerment, clarity and peace in your life.

Join us for an afternoon deep-dive into the art of boundary-setting! Learn how to clarify what your boundary is, how to ask for it clearly and with an open heart, and how to approach and negotiate boundary agreements in your life that will actually stick.

In this session you will gain:

  • New language and concepts to help you negotiate healthy, sustainable boundaries

  • Ways to identify the wants & needs that underlie your boundaries in any given situation so you can express them more clearly

  • The ability to find your "no" and let it guide you toward an empowering "yes" that others want to get behind

  • Strategies for eliminating blame, resentment and other disconnecting obstacles from your boundary-setting conversations
