Facing Fear : Meditation & Scientific Analysis of Emotion : Starts 10 Oct

$90.00

Facing Fear : Meditation & Scientific Analysis of Emotion 

Five Week Course – Saturdays   11am to 12pm @ Hubert St – with Jude, Rob & guest speakers

Starts Saturday 10 October 2020 

Fear triggers when we feel threatened but also reveals where we feel safe.  As growth tends to happen on the edges of safety this is an important signal to listen to.

Rather than seeing fear as bad and trying to get rid of it we can learn to recognise the way it shows up in the face and the body and work with what the feelings are telling us. With this approach of emotional acceptance we are in a place to face fear and avoid the mistakes of having either too little or too much so that we can wield the energy of fear with greater balance.

This opens us to having the ability to work with the full range of our emotional experience (not only the positive ones) for a more rounded life.

Over the 5 weeks we will explore the wisdom of contemplative meditation practices and emotional research to learn how to practice facing fear.

This session forms part of the CEB course, a 42 hour course, which will be offered in blocks throughout the year.

About CEB:
The Cultivating Emotional Balance Training emerged from the Destructive Emotions dialogue between behavioural scientists and the Dalai Lama, Buddhist monks, and scholars at the Mind and Life Institute in Dharamsala, India, in March of 2000. At the culmination of this meeting the Dalai Lama requested that the important ideas raised in these sessions, specifically how to manage the everyday obstacles of our destructive emotions, be turned into an accessible training.

 

Yin Yoga & Myofascial Release Class : Sun 25 Oct 11:00am – 12:30pm

$30.00

Yin Yoga & Myofascial Release Class

Sunday 25 Oct 11:00am – 12:30pm @ Hubert St – with Jude, $30

This yin class will incorporate the spiky ball and foam roller to induce deep release  of restricted areas within the body using the principles of myofascial release.

Yin Yoga works into the connective tissues of the body, with a focus on hip and spine mobility. The practice gives us time to slow down, connect with and explore the depths of the body and mind.

Yin lends itself very well to the practice of mindfulness and introspection so we can transform our practice into a moving meditation and reap the benefits of relaxation, sustained attentional balance and sharpness of mind, as well as cultivating a supple body in a state of ease.

The aim is to have you leave the class with more freedom, movement and release in your body, and a deeply relaxed and calm mind.

Suitable for complete beginners to experienced yoga practitioners.
