About The Event

Training from the Iron Mill College

Having lived through 2020, we all know much more than we would like about the disruption of connection. Exploring Connection is a series of 3 x 3.5 online sessions, which will take us through an enquiry into both disconnection and connection in a variety of realms, using movement, writing and sharing with each other.

Through exploring how connection and disconnection works in your own experience, as well as benefitting from the wisdom of your peers, you will come out of this work feeling better resourced to hold space for others who are struggling with disconnection, as well as learning some simple, but effective embodiment tools for quick re-connection to resourcing and ways to clear distress and disconnection from the nervous system.

So that 2021 can offer us a renewed opportunity to look at how we can support CONNECTION, INTERCONNECTION and RE-CONNECTION with what benefits us, even in the most challenging of circumstances Come to all three or each session as a stand alone.Even before Coronavirus many of us found ourselves working ever-increasing hours, feeling greater pressures to be and do more, unable to switch off from technology, social media and the daily diet of bad news. In a rapidly changing cultural environment it becomes easy to feel like it’s all “out of control”.

Come to all three or one, as a stand alone training.

Part 1 of 3: From Disconnection to Support

Part 2 of 3: From Over-Doing it and "Over It" to Self-Care (this training)

Part 3 of 3: Replenishing the well

Objectives:

In session 2 we will explore some of the underlying inheritance and long term patterns of unkindness and compulsion that lead us into overextension. We will be discussing ways to embed self-care as a new way of life, before exploring our relationship with being-ness, self acceptance and nurturing embrace, in music and movement.

In a rapidly changing cultural environment it becomes easy to feel like it’s all “out of control”.

And then we found ourselves utterly beyond the known in the midst of a global pandemic. This has escalated and amplified all our social and personal “fault lines”. In session 2 we will explore some of the underlying inheritance and long term patterns of unkindness and compulsion that lead us into over-extension.

We will be discussing ways to embed self-care as a new way of life, before exploring our relationship with being-ness, self acceptance and nurturing embrace, in music and movement. This time I will be asking you to commit to two weeks of self-care dates in the time after we meet. Whatever goes on there is between the two of you!
