Y12SR Leadership Training with Nikki Myers

This Y12SR program presents a framework for addiction recovery that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body-based approaches offered by yoga and mindfulness practices.

Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will discuss exactly how combining the cognitive and somatic approaches can support changes in brain patterning. This holistic framework, based in the theme, ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues’, presents a holistic relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, change and healing.

Breaking Barriers with Nikki Myers

 

Codependency is often expressed as the need to control or be controlled, to seek approval, or to avoid confrontation. Codependents may struggle with experiencing appropriate levels of self-esteem, setting functional boundaries, making decisions and verbalizing requests. Under certain conditions, this disorder can be life threatening.

Codependency has also been called the disease of the lost self.  As Thomas Merton wrote: To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our time. This is often how we lose ourselves: we minimize what’s going on inside, while overreacting to the outside.

In this weekend workshop, we will use lecture, discussion, experiential exercises and the tools of yoga (including asana, pranayama, meditation and chanting) to:

— Examine the roots of codependency
— Identify personal samskaras,  the habit patterns that alter our thinking
— Explore tools for healing through a process of awareness, self-love and creativity

At its heart, codependency has to do with our search for our true selves. When we find our true Self and connect it with some bigger energy or higher power, we are free to relate to others in a way that opens deeply fulfilling relationships with ourselves, others and the Divine.

This training is designed for anyone choosing to develop a deeper relationship with self. It is especially ideal for families that are impacted by addiction, and for those in the helping professions, such as yoga teachers, medical professionals, social workers and healers.
