Sabotaging the Saboteur: a talk with Christopher Carrick

05-27-17_Christopher Carrick Talk“Sabotaging the Saboteur: How and Why We Engage in Self-Sabotage”


Are you feeling blocked, personally or professionally? Join us on Saturday, May 27th at 4pm at the West Tisbury Library for a talk with Spiritual Director, Christopher Carrick. Learn about how and why we engage in self-sabotage and what we can do to stop being our own worst enemy. Many of us procrastinate and avoid taking action we know we “should” take. We make bad choices, attract difficult people into our lives, and are consumed with doubt. Time, money, clutter, confusion, and lack of energy are always holding us back.

In this presentation, Christopher will offer a different way to understand self-sabotage: “Like the idea of the ‘inner child,’ I find it helps to personify this phenomenon. We will look at how and why this Saboteur shows up in our lives, and consider the possibility of converting it from an adversary to an ally. In the 15 years I have been doing this work, I have found this tool to be very effective at helping people to stay aware of when they are getting in their own way and be able to do something about it.” Learn how seeing the Saboteur in a different way has the potential to transform powerlessness into awareness. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
