This immersion on Healing Practices for Stress, Trauma and Compassion Fatigue invites the general public, therapists, yoga teachers, and anyone interested in healing modalities that are grounded in authentic, tried and true methodologies from both the east and west.
Whether you have a history that includes anxiety or trauma, are experiencing the need to replenish yourself as a caregiver, healer or therapist, or are interested in learning an integrative, holistic approach to healing, you will discover that this workshop offers far more than simple self-help tools. What is needed in order to truly heal is a transformative path that does not see our modern human condition as a self-improvement project, but one that develops in us a deep trust in ourselves and in our own ability to heal. As a result of this we can experience a type of grounded resiliency— one that engages challenges with more ease and wisdom, and helps us overcome mental and emotional habits that cause unnecessary suffering.
From a Buddhist perspective learn about:
• A Buddhist approach to emotional resilience
• How accessing our present moment awareness can connect us to a deeper compassion for ourselves and others
• How to be with our challenging experiences through meditation
• Learning to trust in our innate goodness
How Buddhist practice can support and deepen both a healing path and a transformational path
From body-based psychotherapy and yoga methodologies learn, or deepen your ability to:
• Relax the physical and subtle bodies
Connect with the felt-sense of the body
Restore emotional regulation
• Replenish energy, and rejuvenate an overworked nervous system
Stay present, refine sensory and energy awareness, and describe whatever is arising, without judgment
