I offer Mindfulness-based Feminist Psychotherapy, and teach classes, retreats, and workshops on mindfulness. Practicing mindfulness for over 30 years, I find this ancient method to be deeply healing, empowering and practical. Its core intention is to free the mind from its conditioning so we can perceive reality clearly and access the wisdom of our true nature. Coupled with awareness of gender conditioning, bringing mindfulness to our painful reactions and habit patterns creates the inner conditions for healing and transformation. Mindfulness helps us live with a warm heart and strong mind. We learn to feel greater ease, confidence and trust that being our authentic self is enough.READ FULL BIO
Highly recommended for any woman who feels stuck with insecurity.
Every so often a book comes along that has the potential to change your life…Unshakeable Confidence reflects the author’s profound understanding of the roots of women’s suffering and provides a wise and practical guide to rediscovering self-love. A pure gem of a book!
Unshakeable Confidence illuminates the cultural conditioning that adversely affects nearly all women—in body, mind, and spirit. Its reframing of codependence, learned helplessness, and relationship addiction as “othering” is groundbreaking. And, most importantly, it gives all of us precise instructions for how to come back home to our essential, healthy, confident selves. Every woman needs to know and practice what’s in these pages.
This book is like having a mindfulness teacher at your side. It is informative and insightful—chock-full of techniques, meditations, and reflections that guide you to the self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence needed to be your authentic self. These are essential tools for all women.
Like Brené Brown, Mare Chapman offers inspiring insights on freeing the real ‘you’ who lives deep inside. Her wise words and exercises will give you the strength and courage to become your authentic self, no matter what life has thrown at you. Brilliant!
