Codependency has been called the ‘disease of the lost self’. 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 over-reacting to the outside.
This workshop is for anyone choosing to develop a deeper relationship with self. It is ideal for those whose family system is affected by addiction as well as those in the ‘helping professions:’ teachers (especially yoga teachers), medical or social work professionals and healers.
In this weekend workshop, you will explore:
-Asana, pranayama, meditation, and chanting to ground your body -Ways to delve into your personal patterns (samskaras), undo those that are harmful, and reinforce those that are beneficial
–Techniques to connect your true self with a higher power
-Tools for healing through a process of awareness, self-love, and creativity.
