Class Description: What if there was a way to interrupt our reactions and actually connect to our hearts when conflict happens? What if during moments of being triggered or upset, we could access curiosity and connection instead of shutting down?
Whether is it work, partnership, family or concern for the planet- conflict is a part of life. This workshop gives tools to deal with feelings in a way that is respectful and caring, while also keeping things honest and real. This is about stepping out of blame and guilt and going deeper- finding kindness towards yourself and others in moments when it seems out of reach.
In this workshop you will:
-Practice self-empathy and increase self-awareness.
-Discover how you might block connection to others without meaning to.
-Connect to the wisdom of your body.
-Learn ways to express your feelings and needs in a constructive way.
-Increase the potential for connection in any environment.
-Learn compassionate self-talk that you can use anywhere, anytime.
-Step away from judgement and towards acceptance.
