Event description
This one-hour Zoom workshop will teach you how to unhook from triggers at the holidays and stay connected to what really matters.

About this Event

Let’s be real, the holidays can spark feelings of anxiety, disappointment, and even dread.

Instead of cherishing time with family, the season may bring up grief, financial obligations, run-ins with dysfunctional relatives, and tired, old family traditions that no longer bring joy.

You’re aware that you can't control other people or events. We're all lookin' at you, 2020!

However, with some focused awareness, you can consciously choose how to respond rather than react.

Whether you’re celebrating the holidays face-to-face or on Zoom this year, you can learn to identify your common triggers (AKA Uncle Fred) and practice your response to his absurd conspiracy theories.

You can skip past the drama as you focus more on true connection and the spirit of the season.

The holidays are useful times to practice moving through tricky and awkward conversations. By becoming aware of your internal experience, you can then shift your external response.

You can feel empowered and energized, rather than exhausted and angry.

The practices you’ll learn in this workshop will carry over into your interactions with that annoying co-worker who never mutes on Zoom, the challenging neighbor with no sense of common courtesy, or the perpetually irritable, pandemic-weary child.

In this workshop you will:

  • Develop self-awareness around what pushes your buttons & takes you out of the moment
  • Notice the physical, emotional and thinking states driving you when triggered
  • Explore the role you most identify with in the Drama Triangle – Victim, Rescuer, Persecutor
  • Learn how to shift out of drama by loosening the grip of life’s inevitable triggers
  • Practice using the formula in real time so you can keep focused, sane, and enjoy the meal you look forward to all year

It’s possible to lessen holiday stress by anticipating your triggers and conversations with others when you respond from a place of awareness and caring.

"It's the skill of lingering at the edges of difficult feelings and conversations that we discover what matters most to us.”
