If one has compassion for self, the natural consequence is to have compassion for others. Many of us have a core imprint that “I am not safe, and I can’t trust”. The challenge for us to trust and connect with our deepest selves greatly impacts on our ability to trust and connect with others. This makes it difficult for us to risk reaching out when we need support. A daily practice of mindfulness and compassion for self and others is a crucial step towards healing traumas that make it so hard for us to trust and feel safe. In this module we will explore: a variety of simple daily practices, which can transform our relationship to ourselves; the exciting scientific research of Kristin Neff and Paul Gilbert, which connects neurobiology with our ability to be nurtured; practices of self-compassion that help to shift our neurobiological pathways and heal our instinctual response, changing it from “I don’t trust” to “I can trust and feel safe”; how self- compassion can deepen our ability to support others.
Furthermore, we will experience the healing powers of expanded states of consciousness in 4 Holotropic Breathwork sessions (2 as a breather and 2 as a sitter).
To participate you don't need any previous experience with Holotropic Breathwork. If you feel drawn, you are welcome!
For those interested in becoming a GTT certified facilitator please note that "Trust and Connection" counts as one of the electives modules for the training. For further information on the training please click here.
To get a feel for the topic you might like to try the "affectionate breathing" exercise from Kristin Neff.
We will start on 8th of March at 9:30 am with registration. The opening circle will be at 11:00 am. Closure is on 13th March at lunch time. A more detailed agenda will be given shortly before the module.
