Challenging Life Experiences and Trauma: How to Reclaim Your Capacity for Connection

Join Shahar Rabi, Ph.D., RCC, and Suntata Calogeros-Smoth, RPC, for this workshop exploring the impact of trauma on the body-mind. Early experiences shape our perception of relationship and therefore affect our capacity to connect and receive the care, love and emotional nourishment that is available to us in our current relationships. In this experiential workshop we will employ relational mindfulness and somatic awareness to allow the hidden beliefs and patterns that shape our lives and relationships to emerge safely into consciousness. Once conscious, they can be directly experienced and re-evaluated, and new dimensions of awareness can be integrated, helping to relieve unnecessary suffering. Click for more details >
