living in the Blame-Free State 

With François Beausoleil

"Blame can become a terrible habit – one that’s extremely costly both personally, socially and culturally.” ~ Miki Kashtan, BayNVC Co-Founder

As Miki says in the above quote, when you play “The Blame Game” there are usually only losers. Nobody wins, not really.  But everyone wins when you let go of blame...  

Francois Beausoleil, author of “Blame Free State”, will be in Washington, D.C. January 8-10, 2016 offering a two-day "Living in the Blame-Free State" Intensive on the processes he has built to explore what you personally can do to reduce the presence of blame in your life – whether it’s blaming others, yourself or the situation.

Wherever you are on your life-path, this course can gift you with new tools for keeping your heart open and free of blame.



Here is an invitation to live from the very heart of Nonviolence – “Ahimsa” – also known as the “State of the Heart that has no Enemies” 

This 2-day Intensive is designed to offer:

- A clear understanding of the cost of blame on our health and overall well-being.

- A comprehensive map of how to transform blame towards others, self or situations.

- A roadmap to help you decode the blame that is coming towards and respond from a place a groundedness and choice.

- A way to capture the message that is there for us to get when we blame.

- A window in detecting the behaviors we use to avoid being blamed, as well as a concrete approach to bring more choice and freedom to these situations.


What People Are Saying

"Finished reading your book, The Blame-Free State, a third time.... I appreciate the examples, they are simple and easy to understand. This is no theory to be understood. Instead, what you have created, Francois, is an experience which opens your eyes as you read along.....lo and behold the change has begun as awareness floods my being."
- Shalini Whadwa

"“I am filled with joy and additionally deeply at peace. I also felt a warmth spread over me when you set the stage with an explanation of 'ahimsa'. Throughout, you provided such an open hearted space for me (us) to process personal situations, using your steps in this first session.  
And what a nurturing  'how to' you shared with us, to arrive at heart filled insightfulness about 'self' and within 'other' and the common ground of feelings and intent that then shone through.
I feel energized and refreshed, deeply nurtured and connected.”
