This workshop will focus on skillful approaches of working with feelings of overwhelm, emotional dysregulation, and feelings of disconnection. It will include an introduction to the concept of trauma and the effects of trauma on the nervous system. We will build our skills to navigate this territory in meditation practice through partnered work, guided meditations and group discussions.
This workshop is intended to be beneficial to anyone inclined towards developing understanding and skills about being present for our lives in a chaotic and fast paced culture. It’s not necessary to have prior experience with the practice but this daylong workshop is not intended to be used to do personal therapeutic work in the group context.
