Early in my work I was finding over and over again that my students who struggled with food also struggled with establishing appropriate boundaries.
They often failed to notice when someone crossed their boundary, had the hardest time saying no, and if they ever stood up for themselves they would be struck by intense feelings of guilt. The more energetically sensitive ones felt like they had no skin and would often overwork, overeat, and compulsively exercise to shut down how much of the emotional world of others they were registering inside their own bodies.
They would ask me questions like: How do I know that someone’s crossed my boundary before it’s too late and I am all pissed off? How do I deal with all the guilt and shame I feel after I set a boundary? What do I do if someone won’t respect my request despite being clear? And how do I tell between what’s mine and not mine?
Because these are questions to be answered with the whole body, last year I developed the first Boundary Master Class. It was so helpful that we’re holding it again – so you can learn how to harness your life force and set the boundaries that are your birthright to have!
