What is Self-Connection?
Self-connection is the process of being in touch with your core Self, without identifying or confusing Self with the experience that is occurring. Often times we confuse our Self with our feelings, roles, perceptions, expectations, and relationships. We will explore the unique Self that lives within you. The Self is the life force that lives within each of us; it is consciousness. The seed of Self has a unique expression in each person and our primary drive is to manifest and form this unique expression. Vitality, power, and authenticity can be felt when we are rooted in the Self and acceptance of the experience that is occurring. By engaging with what is, while simultaneously rooting in the Self, the Self emerges more fully. Being connected with our Self, we can engage in the learning process through whatever challenging experience is occurring or has occurred.
The Self-connection workshop will include concrete skill development through experiential exercises:
7 Learning modules and 3 yoga classes over the 3 days. Topics/Skills include:
Grounding: Connecting to Self, knowing your worth and value
