Conflict cannot resolve when our stress response takes over. Learn how to transform the activation of your fight, flight or freeze response and move into healthier more connected relationships. Fight, flight and freeze (F/F/F) responses are the natural responses to danger…danger when we see a lion, a bear or a snake. Our bodies are designed perfectly for these types of situations as the body contracts or stiffens and the stress hormones kick in to protect us from the danger.
We have however adopted the same responses when we feel angry, afraid, fearful, mad etc. in other situations, in real life. When we are in some kind of conflict or difficulty with a partner/friend/mother etc., we need to have the ability to deal rationally, compassionately and kindly… they are not lions!
In part 1 We will discuss CONNECTION and the implications of F/F/F and the benefits of moving into SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT. This involves toning of the VAGUS NERVE. You will be offered tools and techniques for bringing the vagus nerve to optimal health.
In part 2 We will discuss the PHYSICAL and SEXUAL implications to the human organism when under stress. This involves toning of the PSOAS MUSCLES. You will be offered insights and tools for bringing the psoas muscles to optimal health that will assist with breath, digestion and pelvic health.
In Part 3 We as a group will practice TRE® exercises (Tension & trauma Releasing exercises). You will be led safely through the sequence, and be facilitated through the experience. Once learned, this is an effective method to practice at home to maintain a healthy balanced and nourished nervous system.
In Part 4 We will discuss the RELATIONAL implications of stress. This involves looking at our patterns, choices and triggers in relationships. You will be offered insights and practices for creating new neural pathways to shift belief systems, and open to new possibilities that may have been blocked.
Part 5 Q + A session
In Part 6 We will look at Co- Regulation and the vibration of INTIMACY through MOVEMENT, once again activating the tremor mechanism.
