ELEVATE: BUILDING CAPACITY FOR PEACE
With all that is happening in our world, we need real ‘tools’ that can help us swim through oceanic challenges instead of relying on a doggy-paddle default that leaves us exhausted, and, at the end of the day, in the same place we started. ELEVATE: BUILDING YOUR CAPACITY FOR PEACE teaches practices for inner transformation to give you the capacity to not only 'endure', but to do it with wisdom.
Feel totally overwhelmed by balancing what is going on in the world with what you have to achieve in your work?
Feel on edge, jittery, or a lack of inner peace? Is it impacting the way you talk to yourself and others?
Feel easily triggered these days and the effects last for a long period of time?
Feel an inner nagging that you cannot identify or name?
Think you have to fix it all, solve it all, know it all?
Have trouble ‘stopping’ your mind and find it harder to focus?
Feel like you are not making an impact or doing enough to make the world a better place?
It's maddening when you want to feel calm or respond with a level head, but can't. This is a sign we are being run by the mind, the emotions, or the body. It's why we need practices to tame the mind and calm the nervous system. Why, doing more of the same will not work.
The great news is, we have options.
During this workshop, you'll learn to:
Calm your nervous system, especially after a challenging or triggering event
Shift your mindset through tiny shifts in perspective that yield big results
Gain clarity by learning to ask questions that move you out of your limbic system
Dispel disempowering beliefs & guilt-inducing chatter (i.e. 'You should be doing more.', You're not doing enough.)
'Sit with' awareness of uncomfortable feelings rather than run from them
Grow an ELEVATE habit to practice for the next 30 days
What to Expect...
You'll learn mindfulness & meditation practices, breath practices, and experience creative journaling exercises to gain clarity and stop rumination.
You'll talk and share with others, while also engaging in intensive practices that will serve you for life. You can expect breakouts and lots of practice. We learn best through experience, laughter, and truth-telling in a safe space, so we've designed this workshop with empathy and connection in mind. Connection increases our capacity, will and desire to strive toward peace.
You'll deepen and build your capacity....
to choose and do what it best in the name of children
to choose and do what is best in the name of love
to choose and do what is best in the name of humanity
to choose and do what is best in the name of yourself
At the end of the workshop, you'll receive a C.A.R.E. Package that includes ...
Clearing Practices: 3 simple breath practices calm the nervous system in 3 minutes or less
Awareness Practices: 2 awareness practices that help you quickly assess/detect mental or emotional angst and 'shift'
Reflective Journaling: Creative writing exercises that raise your level of mind beyond a given issue or challenge
Endurance & Equanimity Practices: Anchor practice and guided visualizations that deepen your capacity
Now, as an old man/woman, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world. ~ Anonymous
