"Getting Through the Day”
September 26, 2015
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
When we experience childhood challenges, hurts, trauma or neglect, we may miss out on important developmental milestones. One of the most powerful of these is the capacity to experience the natural flow of thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and impulses. Compulsive behaviors, numbing, a chronic experience of being overwhelmed and a deep yearning to be rescued are some of the most impacting emotional legacies of a wounding childhood.
In this workshop, you will learn ways to sit with feelings without being carried away by them; find a “middle ground” between feeling overwhelmed and shutting down; and discover how you can shift from compulsive urges and impulses to awareness and choice. Central to the flow of the day will be the role of intention—of daring to choose to heal and move beyond outmoded, yet familiar, ways of being.
