When we take care of ourselves, it naturally spreads to others. You know those people you meet and you feel better just by being in their presence? Now think of a person who drains your energy. Whichone of those people do you think focuses on taking care of themselves? Which person do you want to be? When you take care of yourself, you spread that into the world. You inspire others to take better care of themselves. In this presentation Dr. Jane Tornatore shares strategies to help you take care of yourself, especially when you feel overwhelmed by life’s stressors and responsibilities.

Do you yearn to love yourself more, but don’t know how to actually experience loving yourself? The goal of this group is to get you to embody self-love.
Using awareness, compassion, and small actions, you will see and shift the thoughts and beliefs that keep you from loving yourself.
During the 8 weeks we will focus on:
The power of your words to build you up or tear you down
How the brain evolved to keep you stuck and/or anxious, and what you can do about it
Limiting beliefs you learned before you could talk
A model to feel and let go of your feelings instead of having them overwhelm you or shut you down
How to be more in touch with your body instead of cut off from it
The power of boundaries to give you more freedom and more fulfilling relationships
A model to figure out what you can influence and what you can let go of, without guilt
The ability to trust yourself to know what you want, rather than what you “should” do
“You know what you are doing and you are doing the right thing.”
“Dr. Tornatore’s Every Day Love class was great to help me in fighting my problems with shame, working on my issues with how and why to set boundaries, and learning what it means to treat myself well and love myself.”
“I was in a room full of women who had the desire to love themselves better…Their vulnerability and courage were fun and interesting and educational.”
“It was very helpful to learn to feel safe and vulnerable in a group.”
“Jane has a way of making me understand that she too is not perfect and is on her own journey of self-love and learning.”
“I saw areas of myself I had not seen before and then had a safe place to explore that in the course!”
“It was a great experience and I would repeat again!”
“From the group I got a deep connection and understanding of myself, the courage and support to continue with small steps, connection with like-minded women, and professional insight to my challenges, and the power to love myself.”
“The course was fabulous! I am so grateful to have participated. I am seeing changes every day.”
