Was that really helpful? Or not so much?

Exploring the Ups and Downs of Helping

 

Employing lessons from ACIM, Sedona Method Releasing and Body-Oriented Psychotherapy to come into a healthy relationship with helping. 

Whether you are a helping professional or not, the issue of what is helpful is important for all of us to be aware of. Way too often, ‘being helpful’ is more about the helper and less about the one being helped and can feel a lot like manipulation and control. In this bound to be juicy workshop, we will explore our own relationship to helping others, as well as our ability to ask for or refuse help.

  • Do you feel resentful whe others ‘try’ to help?

  • What are your expectations about being helpful?

  • Do you feel guilty saying no?

  • Are you hesitant to ask for help?

  • What does helping have to do with boundaries?

Letting Go into a Course in Miracles-  Are you Really What You Think You Are?

Most of us, most of the time, live as if we are who we were in the past. We assume those around us are also how we remember them from the past. We tell stories about how we became who we believe ourselves to be. But, is that the truth of your being?

Join us as we engage in processes that will allow us to be free of the stories from the past and shift into the present moment (in a most delightful way!)

Topics:     What stories do you keep repeating about yourself?

                    How we carry the past into the future

                    The power of acceptance and letting go

                    Allowing this moment to be

                    Remembering Self and Love

                    Allowing thoughts, feelings and sensations
