Learning the tools for positive self-talk and to speak with yourself with love can transform your life. Maryse has created insightful, practical workshops where you can learn simple ways to cultivate positive, supportive and loving self-talk.

Workshops are always kept small so that there is a lot of time and space for practice, stories and laughter. The self-talk workshops are a safe, nurturing pace to explore and transform your self-talk.

Maryse can also custom-tailor her workshop to fit the needs of your group.

Upcoming workshops:


Self-talk for More Self-kindness and Self-Compassion
Saturday October 28, 9 am to noon

Are you quite critical in your self-talk? Do you judge yourself harshly? Is it hard for you to accept yourself as you are? In this workshop, we will explore tools to start speaking to ourselves as a true best friend would: with patience, acceptance, compassion, kindness, and levity.  This highly interactive time will use lots of exercises so we can develop a loving inner voice.

Maryse Cardin is the author of the just released book Speaking to Yourself with Love: Transform your Self-Talk. She is a self-talk coach, Zen Buddhism meditation practitioner, and university communication instructor. She works with clients to help them discover and stand by their own true authentic voices.
