In episode number 6, I introduce “inner parts work” and talk about saying “hi” to your critic. Try it out. You may just find that when you acknowledge your critic in a welcoming, friendly way, you create more room inside to let others in too.

1:40 The “outer” work of intimacy depends on the “inside work” of connection with ourselves
2:25 Introduction to working with parts
3:35 Health is the integration of all the parts
4:32 Can you hear your critic?
5:57 My critic is a tight-bun-wearing-academic who roars!
7:10 Live demo: I say hi to my inner critic (a first step)
9:17 If it’s not a fun party for me inside, I’m not going to invite you!
9:30 The voice of the inner critic will block you from loving me
9:52 Even a little softening makes room for others to get in
9:59 You can try this with kids too!
