LIFE-CHANGING COURSE FOR REDUCING STRESS AND LEARNING TO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH AND WELL BEING
In this 8-week course we will explore practical ways of connecting to and releasing pandemic related trauma that is held inside which has an ongoing effect on our health and well-being.
This trauma can show up as anxiety, tension, depression, sleeplessness, exhaustion, mood swings, feelings of hopelessness, anger, grief etc. In this workshop we will focus on reawakening the innate ability we all share to heal and recover from stress and trauma and look at how to release these various energies using mindfulness practices.
This intensive course will be mostly experiential exploring the natural way we carry the past and how to relax into it so that it can naturally release. Any essential workers or healthcare staff working during the covid crisis will inevitably carry some left-over stress from managing their own activation in relation to the pandemic and that of others. Reorienting to well-being means that we must understand, acknowledge, connect to and heal the past, so that we have access to more lightness and capacity moving forward.
Timothy Sweeney has been teaching meditation and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction to health professionals and the public in Ireland since 2004. Since 2014 he has been working with groups to explore and heal current and ancestral trauma in Europe and Asia.
This course is especially applicable to anyone who has worked in a Covid Hospital environment – nurses, doctors as well as any support staff and will also be beneficial to anyone affected by pandemic or other stress in a more general way.
