Beyond Anger, Fear, Guilt & Shame – The Compass to Reliving Your True Self with Arnina Kashtan

September 26, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm


An in-depth daylong intensive workshop

  • Are you tired of repetitive behaviors, which you find yourself going back to in spite of all your good intentions (and knowledge what “not to do”…)?
  • Are you praying to finally understand, “get” and overcome old, painful patterns of thought and action, that lead you nowhere near where you dream to be?
  • Are you astonished when, time after time, you misunderstand your spouse, kids, parents, colleagues, and fall into painful misunderstandings, fights and growing distance?
  • Are you ready to do anything it takes to finally shift to a new consciousness, in which you can be, feel and live who you really are (with others as well)??

Well, guess what…

Arnina will give you the path to understand, de-code and transform all of these!!!

If you’re ready for a truly phenomenal way for you to shake away old painful patterns, beliefs, and unconscious vows, which have kept you from flourishing and living with tons more presence, sense of choice, and joy – THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!

In this daylong intensive workshop, and with the help of Arnina’s Relationships Triangle, you will explore the main painful blocks which stop you (and the rest of humanity) from both realizing and expressing your authentic truth – while showing up courageously and compassionately influencing those around you.

Some Background

After years of deep exploration into Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and The Work of Byron Katie, Arnina has created her own process, called The Compass, which includes major elements from these modalities, Inner Child work, and much more. This workshop will be based on The Compass.

If you’ve been to one of Arnina’s workshops in the past, you know you are in for an amazing transformational treat. Her passion for true self-talk, her utterly compassionate and relentless inquiry process, her own vast experience, and her laser-like wisdom and empathy, accompanied by that rare sense of humor, make working with her a refreshing experience of love, understanding, and true healing.

Here are some of Arnina’s words about The Compass and this workshop.

“Along the process of untangling the unconscious inner knots we will look at Fear, Guilt, Shame and Anger as some of the main forces that keep blocking us, reinforced by our acquired core-life-long beliefs – all of which get us stuck in old habits and patterns for many years of suffering.

The Compass, which was born out of my own life experiences – what I’ve learned, discovered, and developed, is a comprehensive & integrative process that opens the door to breaking through those limiting forces and transforming our personal, family, professional and social relationships.

Not only will you learn to understand your own and others’ multi-generational conditioning, but also manage to reclaim the lost connection to your authentic self by releasing you from layers of unconscious world-views, patterns, beliefs and (what I call) The Vow. As a result of this profound work, the re-connection with your deepest Needs, Dreams, and Aspirations will be deeper than you’ve ever experienced.

With a delicate and direct, thorough and light-speed process of zooming-in, we will dive deeply into the source of your repetitive suffering, giving you the way to extract your Life Belief, find the Vow which holds you there – and learn how to release its grip so you can finally come back to your own true self, and flourish.”

You will come out of this workshop with –

  • Fresh clarity about your hidden blockages
  • A deep sense of self-acceptance
  • A clear way to live with courageous vulnerability with yourself and others

Bring your questions, pains, and conflicts, your fear, anger, guilt, and shame. They WILL TRANSFORM.

      Hi Sojourna Lee
      I wonder if you’ve got the clarity you need already, so just to be on the safe side am responding here too. The price for the workshop is $350-650.
      I hope you and your friend manage to come.
      Let me (and mostly the office) know if there is anything further we can do to support you.

      looking forward to meeting you
