Event description

Description

$10-20 sliding scale (plus a small EventBrite service fee).

Learn how your brain is wired to respond to danger, and how overwhelming experiences can cause us to get stuck in the danger-response mode. You'll understand the basic biological reasons for emotions and gain compassion for yourself and others.This class includes learning to feel how to monitor and consciously affect your own nervous system, as well as how to use mindfulness to heal trauma. This material is very relevant to yoga, Aikido and other martial arts, spirituality, and every type of personal growth work.

Past participants called this class "simple but life-changing" and "illuminating." Appropriate for the public, yet also will have enough juicy information to be very relevant for practitioners of all types. (Note, this class is not intended to treat severe emotional trauma. Upon request, I can provide a referral to a trained therapist.)

Based largely on the Somatic Experiencing work of Peter Levine. Find his books at the library or Powell's, including Waking the Tiger, In an Unspoken Voice, and Trauma-proofing Your Kids.

PS: This class is very information-rich. We also offer a movement-centric class called "Self-Care for the Nervous System: A Movement Exploration" which is happening Tues Dec 4 7-8:30pm at Peoples. Attending both is great but it's also totally okay to come to either one separately!
