The Transcending Stress workshop takes an holistic approach to stress.
By using a combination of mind-focused and body-focused techniques, it addresses 3 fundamental questions:
How do I rest if I don’t have time?
How do I relax if I’ve forgotten how to?
How do I deal with my mental “plate-spinning” (or driving 3 cars at once in the fast lane!)?
We will look at what stress really is and whether it’s possible to talk about 'positive' stress; the antidote to stress and what makes it difficult to achieve that in the modern world.
We will focus on fusing mind and body with a sequence involving breathing exercises, mindful listening and movement and meditation, as well as discussing regulating emotions and thoughts;
looking at the feelings that impact on our stress levels and the stories we tell ourselves; changing our relationship with ourselves in order to change our responses.
Most importantly of all perhaps, we look at stress from a spiritual perspective - the 'transcendent' bit - finding ways to stand back from the entanglements of our personalities and replenish ourselves with our own
