About the Course
If you look at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, you must have the basic needs met such as food, shelter, safety, security, before you can achieve the higher needs of meaning, purpose and inner potential.
So how do we meet our basic needs, so we can find ourselves more productive? Through radical self-empathy. Self-empathy is the ability to give yourself compassion and understanding. During this workshop, we will practice a blend of self-empathy techniques, including Marshal Rosenberg's practice self-empathy, Louise Hayes' use of positive affirmations, and several mindfulness tools.
This group is intended for mid-to-executive level nonprofit professionals looking for your next great role.
In this course, you will:
- Identify and feel your feelings, so they no longer overwhelm you.
- Pinpoint your needs that drive your feelings, so that you have the clarity to move forward.
- Make a plan of action- whether it be a request of yourself, others, or something you need to do immediately.
Distinguishing thoughts, judgments, and evaluations from observations
Identifying and experiencing feelings in the body
Using feelings as the doorway to understanding and appreciating needs
Using positive affirmations as a tool to provide self-support
Developing a plan of action from your self-empathy practice
Increase daily experiences of positive feelings such as joy, love, appreciation, empathy, and fulfillment.

Participants will participate in engaging and interactive exercises. Each week, the facilitator will break down a different part of the practice, so by the sixth week, participants can do this practice on their own.

"Danielle's thoughtful & unique approach really helped me redirect my approach to my career. Prior to working with her, I felt stuck and could not see how my skills could be transferrable in another industry. I now see many possibilities!"Rachel Sax Ramos
