There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
– Anais Nin
It is characteristic of unresolved trauma to create endless loops of repeating the past. History repeats in part because the collective is traumatized and doesn’t know it, see it, admit to it or know what to do about it. Without many, many individuals within the collective doing the deep work of personal growth and healing, cultural patterns will keep repeating, action plans will be at risk of perpetuating the status quo, and a sense of profoundly new vision will be highly improbable.
Part I of Re-Examining our Belief Systems: Growing Beyond the Known will be Saturday, January 14, 9:00am – 4:30pm.
This series is well-suited for those who are discontent with the status quo, but feel unsure of how to bring about change. It will offer a safe space to explore personal belief systems and worldview as well as how to come into a deeper understanding of what we see going on around us. While information about stress and trauma will be presented, these workshops will be largely experiential and include two sessions per workshop practicing Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises. We will begin at the so to speak ‘top’ layer and go deeper each time. In January, we will begin by looking at the role of chronic stress in our lives, how our conditioning limits us and keeps us stuck in an unhealthy status quo. We will also explore how to grow beyond that.
May you find great enjoyment in the holidays with those who mean the most to you.
