Who will be presenting:

These Bags Are Heavy

Class Description

I once had a therapist say to me that living in relationships that exchanges authority was a slippery slope for me.  I have found that the bags I carry are quite heavy.  At times managing the weight of them while choosing to surrender can indeed be daunting.  In this discussion, I will share some of the challenges I have had living as somebody who surrenders while managing abuse derived from childhood and previous relationships.  I will also speak about the ways I have learned to overcome my struggle so that I can live with joy in surrender.  I invite attendees to join in the discussion and share the fulfillment we feel in surrender, the roadblocks in the way, and how we overcome them.

You’ve Got To Be F**cking Kidding Me?!

Class Description

We are each human in interestingly different ways and how we respond to life circumstances has a huge impact on our physiological, spiritual and emotional wellbeing, leading to shifts and changes in our mental health. Hormone fluctuations, disease, chronic illness or traumatic events can have significant but shorter-term impacts on our mental health.
Sharing their struggles with menopause and cancer treatment, Tomo and Eleven provide a foundation for participants to share their own stories of how mental well-being is effected by crisis and offer transformative possibilities to support deep adaptation.
