Paul Dunion at the Egg


Dr. Paul Dunion Invites You to a Workshop

Saturday October 7, 2017
9:00 AM to 4:00 PM


The Dragon’s Egg Studio
401 Shewville Road, Ledyard, CT

Everything from the affirmations of Pop Psychology to the therapeutic work of Family of Origin has attempted to support Self-Esteem. The psychological literature does not address the importance of Self-Intimacy. Love and Intimacy are in a mutually complementary relationship whether with another person or with ourselves. This workshop focuses upon what it means to take responsibility for building a loving and intimate relationship with the Self.

We will explore several ways to promote this relationship:

  • Prioritize our spiritual responsibility to deepen how we relate to ourselves.
  • Identify and interrupt the purposes of self-contempt.
  • How to integrate the meaningful role of self-forgiveness.
  • How to interrupt shame.
  • Undoing comparing and contrasting ourselves to others, resulting in the interruption of hierarchy.
  • Commit to devotionally support Self-Intimacy.

We will explore what it takes to integrate these self-relatedness skills into our lives resulting in Self-Intimacy. This workshop employs short lectures, storytelling, paired exercises, guided meditation, and movement.

Workshop facilitator:

Paul Dunion, EdD, LPC, is a teacher and psychological healer who has been offering workshops, classes, and has been writing about the human potential movement since 1980. He is presently a regular blogger for The Huffington Post and has written 5 books, the latest published in 2016 and titled Seekers: Finding Our Way Home. Paul founded The Croton Mystery School in 2013; you can learn more about the school and it’s upcoming schedule by downloading the brochure found on his website as well.

Fee: $100 check, cash or credit card. You can pre-register or pay at the door.

Please visit Paul’s website www.pauldunion.com to download the brochure and registration information.
