PROCESS AND LET GO WORKSHOP: 9am-1pm Sun. 26th March
TEACHER | AUTHOR
Stop being consumed by your thoughts and feelings, and start letting them go.
Whether it's you, your loved one, clients, team or students who are struggling with stress, exhaustion, feeling lost, overwhelmed, stuck, anxious or depressed, some days it can feel like drowning in your own negativity and pain.
While you might have tried talking to someone, practised mindfulness or focused on positive thoughts, new research shows why these approaches don't always work.
The latest neuroscience explains that a visceral connection with our emotions is essential, to find safety within our internal and external worlds. Yet the sheer thought of going towards our own mental and emotional pain leaves us afraid to even go there.
Breathe, you're in the right place.
While most mental health and emotional wellbeing workshops focus on a 'mindset' approach, this workshop goes beyond the mind and teaches a life-saving skill, how to feel safe with emotions inside our bodies.
With intense feelings of anxiety, sadness or loneliness, or thoughts like 'I'm stupid', 'I'm not good enough' and 'I'm broken,' this workshop shows you highly-practical therapeutic strategies to accept and release big thoughts and feelings using curiosity, compassion and play.
The Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System called for more responsive, preventative, compassionate and holistic approaches, all of which this workshop offers.
Celebrating the inextricable link between the body and mind, you will walk away with interoceptive strategies to overcome any genuine fears of sitting with your own uncomfortable thoughts and feelings using the MEET. GREET. TREAT.' model.
This is an evidence-based somatic inquiry workshop, engaging the latest neuroscience on the mind, body, brain and behaviour.
"This taught me to allow the feelings to arise and process. I wish I had have known this when I was going into my teens."
"After decades of countless appointments with psychologists which only seemed to reinforce my belief that there was something wrong with me, I have found these tools more effective and helpful than any other methods."
"The results have been truly life changing, I use the tools daily. It is easy and accessible and my mental health and overall wellbeing continually improves because of it."
Discover the science behind anxiety and depression and learn how a 'bodymind' approach can lift mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Learn simple nervous system regulation techniques to prepare yourself to safely sit with your uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, so you can let them go.
ADDRESS YOUR TRIGGERS
Find the root of your struggles using two key concepts and recognise when an issue stems from unresolved trauma, unprocessed emotions or beliefs.
MEET. GREET. TREAT.
Learn the three-step model to meet, greet and treat your thoughts and feelings like friends so you can stop being consumed by them and start letting them go.
Meet and get to know other wonderful people who are in the same boat as you and feel safe as you support your own or others' healing.
