Don’t Make Pain the Enemy: Freeing Yourself to Heal.
May 21, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Join this free workshop on Sunday, May 21, which combines the body wisdom of the Alexander Technique with the healing and stabilizing power of mindfulness. Learn:
- How the body was designed to be supported with ease.
- How to stop struggling against your own pain and habits.
- How to calm your nervous system and truly focus.
- To stop the mental patterns that make your pain and stress worse.
- How self-compassion actually improves pain and anxiety.
Led by Dan Cayer, a highly experienced Alexander Technique, and meditation teacher, this workshop will teach you how true pain relief and sustainable posture are not the result of struggle and vigilance. In fact, our efforts to micromanage our pain and posture only make things worse. You will learn how to tap into your body’s natural structure and wisdom through group exercises and individual hands-on adjustments.
Creating an attitude of openness and curiosity paves the way for true healing. By learning to not micromanage our body, we discover our body’s natural intelligence and posture. The Alexander Technique and mindfulness will be applied to help you directly contact innate healthiness and ease, without having to try to be ‘better.’ 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.
