Respiration Yoga

 with Zander Hathaway

 

Respiration Yoga involves a powerful breathing exercise derived from Tibetan Tummo, which has been practiced in extremely cold temperatures by monks for several thousand years and recently made popular by Wim Hof, a.k.a. “the Iceman”. This method is designed to influence the autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system, in order to bring balance to virtually all functions of the body, regulate its core temperature, and generate greater health and happiness. We will begin the practice at the top of the waterfall and then move into the water to experience it in a colder environment.

The Tyranny of Language:
How to consciously use words instead of unconsciously allowing words to use you

with Russ Giles

 

This interactive seminar (that means lots of participant participation!), explores how language actually limits and dictates the reality we perceive. And what can be done about that. While the seminar involves a group of people, the insights (both ahah's and uh-oh's) will be highly individualized to each participant. Most of the exercises involve practicing specific techniques you can use on others AND especially on yourself to usurp the tyrannical grip of language that limits your perceptions about your world and yourself.

Some things you might discover (not simply as concepts, but as knowings):

  • This language you got in your head isn't even yours.
  • The most profound beliefs you have are the ones you don't know about.
  • Most the time you think you are thinking; you're not.
  • When you find yourself caught in a rut or a hole, the first thing to do: STOP DIGGING!

Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

with Fazilee

workshop-1-tepr

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence-- the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.

NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.

People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

 

 

See you next time!!
