Date & Time
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Free Intro on Wednesday, October 2 at 6:00 pm – Series begins on October 16
Anxiety, panic, anger, hopelessness, depression, sadness, body aches, and ailments—these are a few of the sensations that hijack our nervous systems when we become overwhelmed or experience trauma.
By the use of meditation, music, grounding, and Somatic Experiencing (SE) experiential exercises, we will learn to regulate our nervous systems before they go into overdrive or plummet. SE is a short-term, gentle, naturalistic body/mind model in treating trauma, and feelings of being overwhelmed. During class, SE exercises will be taught verbally and through hands-on work.
Learning how to build a resource container, a toolbox unique to our own nervous systems that we can dip into when needed, will be the focus of this workshop.
