an Experimental Process

We have all experienced what happens when we can’t get a handle on difficult emotions, sooner or later we find ourselves adrift in an ocean of Toxic Stress, adverse effects impacting our physical and mental health, our performance at work and our family life.  Everyone has a different constitution, genetic makeup and upbringing, that influence our stress hardiness and conflict literacy.  Working with our emotions takes more than a healthy diet, exercise, spiritual practice and regular medical check-ups.  Our body bears the burden of trauma and resulting stress and this needs to be addressed directly.

You will learn to work mindfully with emotions and physical sensations through therapeutic awareness, breath practice, and other tools/skills in order to gain insight into embodiment and transcend difficult emotions.

This group will be open to seven participants.  We will meet once a week for seven consecutive weeks for 1.5 to 2 hours each meeting; this will be a closed and confidential group setting.
