Transforming Limiting Beliefs: Stepping up, Staying in, Moving forward
Tuesdays: Jan 28, Feb 4, Feb 11, and Feb 18th
The important and often challenging work of meaningful dialogue, collaboration and changemaking calls on us to engage ourselves with rigorous and compassionate personal practice. It is both an opportunity and a responsibility for us to look closely at our own limiting beliefs and patterns in order to learn with humility, amplify our potential for positive contribution and shift the negative impact we can sometimes have, even if it is not intentional. Self-inquiry based personal practice can also provides us with valuable insights for our learning, growth and wellbeing.
In order to access new ways of thinking and showing up, we need to identify and transform the current thinking where we are stuck. Caitlin Frost draws on Byron Katie’s The Work, as a simple, yet powerful tool for working directly with your own stressful thinking and limiting beliefs.
Caitlin’s approach offers a way to access valuable insights, important self-awareness and the ability to transform the beliefs and deeper patterns that can cause us to be reactive or shut down and can limit our creative thinking in our lives, relationships, and work.
In this 4-week online program we will explore the concept of limiting beliefs: where they show up, and how to identify and work with them for yourself. We will learn the basic structure of The Work, and then each week we will focus on an inquiry into one key area of thinking to support our practice as dialogue practitioners and change makers. We will explore and work with the patterns of fear, stressful thinking, judgement, failure and underlying beliefs.. Each week there will be a ‘homework’ exercise to bring the real-time learning into your own practice, either through written inquiry or optional peer-learning dyads.
We will focus on a general understanding of and practice with limiting beliefs and these three topics:
Stepping in: to more consciously host or participate in dialogue where there are differing perspectives, different styles of communication, power issues, tension, historic conflict, big issues with no answers. While these are important conversations to be able to contribute to meaningful change in our workplaces and communities, we often avoid these conversations or show up ‘charged’ and attached to our positions.
Staying in: It can be challenging to stay in healthy, creative dialogue and work when there is conflict, differences and uncertainty. It can be hard to genuinely listen with curiosity and openness to learn; to speak in service of the purpose, whole, and to stay through difficulty with grace. Especially when the stakes are high and feel personal. From our own fears, assumptions and attachments, we sometimes flee, shut down, blame, reach for power and control or show up in a range of unhelpful and unhealthy ways out of our own limiting beliefs and patterns.
Moving forward: If we are going to be able to access and use the learnings from the hard moments of collaborative work and dialogue, and stay in important relationships as we move forward, we need to be able to work with the assumptions and stress based storylines that can develop during difficult work and be carried forward in limiting and unhealthy ways. These patterns can include such as blame and criticism (self and others) exclusion/silos and avoidance. We can use powerful self-reflective personal practices to grow our resilience, self-awareness and effectiveness as we navigate the stages of meaningful collaborative dialogue and work.
“Caitlin Frost is brilliant in working with people to shift their limiting beliefs. A gifted facilitator, she really supports people to move into areas of their own thinking with curiosity and compassion. Working with Caitlin I have had many “a-ha” moments myself, and I have benefited enormously from Caitlin’s application of The Work in different settings. Caitlin’s also just a tremendous person, and if you have a chance to attend one of her workshops, do it! You won’t regret, and you will be different when you leave!

The Work with Caitlin Frost is a deeply transformational process that creates amazing results! I unpacked a constellation of interrelated limiting beliefs and deeply held behavioral patterns that were showing up in my personal and professional life. As a result of Caitlin’s beautiful support, I am boldly pursuing my calling with a sense of clarity and ease. Already my world is shifting because I no longer get in my own way. I highly recommend Caitlin and The Work to individuals and groups who are ready to let go of the limiting beliefs that are keeping them from actualizing their potential.
