Don’t Make Pain the Enemy: Freeing Yourself to Heal
January 7, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Led by Dan Cayer, an experienced Alexander Technique, and meditation teacher, this workshop will teach you how pain relief, sustainable posture, and true healing are not the result of struggle and vigilance. In fact, our efforts to micromanage our pain and body only make things worse. When we battle against our own body, we get stuck and become obsessed with getting better.
Creating an attitude of openness and curiosity paves the way for true healing. The Alexander Technique and mindfulness will be applied to help you directly contact innate healthiness and ease, without having to try to constantly improve yourself. You will learn how to tap into your body’s natural structure and wisdom through experiential exercises. These are practices and an attitude shift that you can take with you long after the class. The goal is not to stay the same forever – rather that when we stop resisting the present moment, we truly begin to change.
