Event description

Description

The recent outpouring of allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood, the media, and government has been overwhelming. While the #MeToo campaign was intended to break the silence around sexual assault and harassment, for some of us it’s been #TooMuch.

Whether it triggers memories of your own experience, makes you realize that someone you love has been hurt in the past, or just makes the state of the world look a little worse than you realized (and you already thought it was pretty bad), the constant barrage on facebook, twitter, and the news is sapping your resilience and impacting your physical and emotional health. Where can you get the support to regain your ground, balance your nervous system, and find the resilience to keep going in these truly painful times?

Join Shauna Farabaugh, certified somatic sex educator and certified TRE® provider, for a small group introduction to Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®). TRE® is a simple to learn technique that assists the body in releasing long held tension and trauma by safely activating the body’s natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating, which brings the nervous system back into a state of balance, ease, and resilience.

TRE® is based on the fundamental idea, backed by research, that stress, tension and trauma are both psychological AND physical. Because we engage directly with the nervous system through the body in TRE®, it is often possible to experience relief from symptoms of PTSD or unresolved trauma without any emotional or cognitive experience of “the story” behind these symptoms, which can be a tremendous gift to those who don’t want to relive their experiences to find relief.

In this 90-minute workshop, Shauna will:

  • provide a brief introduction to TRE®--what it is and why it works
  • walk you step-by-step through the simple exercises that invite the body’s natural tremoring mechanism to emerge
  • support you while you rest comfortably on a yoga mat and “shake out” your long held trauma and tension, bringing relief to your nervous system

Each group will have a maximum of five participants. This allows for individual attention and support for each participant while enabling a low-cost introduction to the technique. The exercises can be modified to make the technique accessible to a wide-range of bodies.

Reported benefits of TRE® include:

  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Decrease in chronic pain and muscular tension
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Greater emotional resiliency
  • Less conflict in relationships

TRE® is designed to be a self-help tool that, once learned, can be used independently as needed throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wellness. It’s a short-term financial investment in a long-term self-care tool so you can experience ongoing support even when time and money don’t allow for one-on-one trauma interventions.

Cost for each workshop is $35. Advanced ticket purchase is required to ensure small group size.

November 15, 12pm-1:30pm, Room B, Women's Building, 3543 18th Street, San Francisco.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that you can move around in. Bring your own yoga mat if you have one! I will provide a few extra for those who do not. Please support me in making this event scent-free by refraining from wearing any scented products to the class. Thank you!

Note: Individual TRE® intro sessions are $150, and small group classes of 4-5 people usually run $75 per person. This limited-time introduction is offered at a significantly reduced rate to offer support to a broader community of folks impacted by current events.
