Everyday Narcissism: Yours, Mine & Ours
Most of us live with a garden-variety form of narcissism that’s so common– and so deeply embedded– that we don’t even know we have it. As a result, we suffer deeply and unnecessarily. This is called everyday narcissism, or EN, and it comes from a combination of childhood wounds and powerful myths we were taught as children. Learn how it develops, how to recognize it (both in others and in ourselves), what we can do to heal and live a life of greater joy.

Vision boards create a sacred space that displays what you want, and supports you as you bring what you want, to life. And visualization works!

The boards and other items will be supplies, but to make sure we have enough for everyone, please bring any of the following: scissors, glue/tape, magazines to cut images from, favorite markers or colored pens, and most importantly, any things you want to look at every day – Photos, quotes, sayings, images of places you want to go, reminders of events, places, or people, postcards from friends and just about anything that will inspire you.
