Welcoming the exiles
Monday July 27th 2020
Full description...
So much of our energy and life force can be tied up in keeping things away. Whether it’s the grief we carry, or the “ugly” parts of us that we wish we didn’t feel, or the child we abandon to appear all sorted and ok. For so many reasons we have exiles - parts of us that live in the shadows, sometimes wreaking havoc in our life and also in their deepest being are longing to be met. All exiles want to be welcomed home.

This free 75 minute seminar explores:

  • Why we end up with exiles
  • What they feel like in our life and in Focusing or similar embodied practices
  • How we might meet them with curiosity and empathy
  • Why it’s essential to welcome them home.

Befriending your “avoidance”
Thursday Mar 21st 2019
Full description...
We all suffer from this very human tendency to avoid difficult situations and feelings. We procrastinate, deny, distract and avoid, and then we give ourselves a hard time for doing this. And so the battle continues. It could be some conflict with a family member, or as big as the current ecological crisis. Something in us avoids it.

What if you had a way to get beneath the battle and completely change your experience of these areas of our life, what if you could be kind to those parts of you that turn away and make allies of them? What if you could learn to be curious about anything…

This free 60 minute seminar will introduce a new way of looking at, exploring and even transforming these stuck areas of our life.
