Drop In Sessions are a great way to learn more about yourself!
I'm offering a repeating series of 5 topics for exploration and understanding:
Learn about the systems operating unconsciously within you that when left to their own devices, create barriers to the kind of connection you envision for yourself. Be You: With Others Drop In sessions explore the particular expression of these systems within you and make room for deeper satisfaction in your life, work and relationships.
Looking for another window into your internal lanscape? Try a drop in session.
Drop in sessions also offer a great way to get a taste of what you can expect from a Be You: With Others Process Group. Feeling safe with the leader of an interpersonal process group is essential. I encourage you to come in and get a feel for me and an introduction to the process so you can rest assured, this work is right for you.
What can you expect from a Be You: With Others Drop In Session?
Each Session will support:
Here's info about the topics I'll be covering at each Drop In Session:
The Attachment System:
It is in our earliest "group," our family, that we learn how relationships work. The templates that supported us to thrive back then: Secure, Anxious or Avoidant are superimposed on our world today. Just a little information about them can begin to support us to sort reality from implicit echoes from the past enabling us to see more clearly, connect more richly and to feel more empowered to act in our lives.
Trauma and the Left and Right Brain:
Consistent caregiver misattunement in childhood can strand us in a narrow, disembodied left brain reality where disintegration, though uncomfortable, is a kind of safe haven away from the overwhelm of our affective experience. This leaves fight, flight or freeze activation unresolved in the nervous system where it can wreak havoc on our capacity to self-regulate. Beginning with a cognitive understanding of what's happening in the hemispheres of the brain can offer context and a map home to ourselves.
Aggression, Anger and Rage:
Living in a culture that so values happiness, we can feel confused, even ashamed when we feel angry. We can feel deeply uncomfortable, upset or frozen when those in our lives express it. Aggression, one name for our righteous and unique life force energy as well as Rage, a survival based fight response are both often mistaken for Anger. Taking a curious view of the essential and healthy human emotion we are actually having can support recognizing the needs within the experience, pausing before taking action and expressing ourselves more skillfully.
Shame and The Inner Critic:
Shame, is an embodied belief there is something wrong with us. It’s rooted in a physiological, last ditch survival strategy designed to conserve our energy in the face of unbearable circumstances. The inner critic is born of our cognitive drive to make sense of our experience. If I feel this bad, I must be bad. We can learn to recognize shame and dis-identify from its painful story.
Come, learn about the systems that keep you stuck.
Learn about their brilliance, their deeply healthful purposes.
By knowing and accepting with gentleness the fullness of our human experience, we become more whole.
It is this gently growing wholeness, which becomes the foundation for deep change.
