Silence your negative self-talk and finally learn to be kind to yourself

....THE BASICS....

What it is: An online course for skeptical jerks who want to be just a tiny bit nicer to themselves.

How it works: You’ll learn through weekly assignment emails and video Q+A calls.

When it is: July 9-August 5

The price: $111 after July 2

What would it take to silence the shit-talking voices in your head?

You know the ones.

The ones that love to tell you how you have to be perfect, how you’re just one wrong move from everything falling apart, that you have to be on your guard all the time because you can’t trust anyone, especially not yourself. 

What would it sound like to have kinder voices inside?

Would they remind you that you’re okay just as you are, that growth happens by making mistakes, that people love you and want the best for you? 

In Affirmations for Assholes, we’ll work in a systematic and compassionate way to find the origins of those old stories and write some newer narratives that will finally put your inner trashmouth to rest.


Affirmations for Assholes is four weeks long (July 9-August 5).

You’ll get an email each week with a two-part assignment. The first part is writing about your inner narratives; the second part is firsthand observation of how they’re talking to you in real-time.

Later in the week we’ll have a live video call where you can report back about where you’re struggling and where you’re making progress. We’ll answer questions and have a conversation about that week’s topics.

Each week builds on the previous week’s work, and by the end of the month, you’ll have a whole new set of believable, authentic #affirmationsforassholes to replace your typical inner monologue.

The emails arrive every Monday morning. Video calls are on Sundays at 1pm Central time. Calls are recorded so no sweat if you can’t make it live.

The price is $111.


"I really appreciate the way Bear sets and holds space for people to bring themselves to the table with all their honest imperfections and connect with the group. We created a supportive community, which is so valuable in the effort to commit to self-care and self-love, and in the waging the battle against negative self-talk!"

"If you're interested in delving into the limiting belief structures that even some small part of you knows would be helpful to do away with, if you're willing to get a little (or a lotta) bit vulnerable in a non-judgmental, supportive environment with fellow humans who sometimes trick themselves into thinking they're fuck ups, and if you're open to exploring new, more compassionate ways of seeing yourself and witnessing others doing the good work of learning to love themselves in this so often harsh world, I recommend this class!"


Despite my best intentions, I’m sometimes an asshole to myself. Affirmations are often recommended as an antidote to self-critical narratives, but typical New Age affirmations have always rubbed me wrong.

They smack of a type of emotional and spiritual bypassing (#goodvibesonly) that I think is alienating at best and downright harmful at worst. And they often seem to be based on a sort of white-washed individualism and meritocracy that doesn’t take into account the systemic factors that affect our daily lives.

The name Affirmations for Assholes randomly popped into my head while I was meditating one morning (I know, I couldn’t make this shit up!!), and thus, this class was born.

This class will give you affirmations that even the most skeptical among us can believe in.
