The Science and Somatics of Self-Care:

Contemplative Practices to Reset our Nervous Systems

Embodied calm and ease is challenging to achieve given that we are surrounded by the pace of modern life and stimuli that light up our survival instincts. Relaxation is especially elusive when we've experienced emotional wounds, traumas, or relational abandonments that have set our nerves on high alert. While we try to calm our aroused or chronically shut-down nervous systems, we can be bombarded with messages "to just relax," as if it's simply a matter of pushing a button.

On this retreat we'll address the underlying psycho-biological mechanisms that establish our core emotional settings, integrating early Buddhist wisdom with contemporary insights from neuropsychology and attachment theory.  We'll explore a wide variety of ancient and modern techniques to establish states associated with the eight Cs: Connected; Curious; Calm; Clear; Confident; Courageous; Compassionate; Creative.
