Working with Fear & Aggression:
Settle Your Body & Mind
There’s a lot of anger and fear in the world right now, and rightfully so.
Your trauma response is part of your fight or flight response - everyone has it, and that's okay. This class is designed to help you re-wire the way your brain responds to trauma through teaching and tools.
Just a few months ago, we were hunkered down in social isolation and preaching coming together through staying apart in response COVID-19. Next up: election season, which is anything but friendly…
Over the summer, the death of George Floyd (and a rash of other senseless killings; past and present) prompted communities all over the globe to march in the streets, protesting oppression and fighting to dismantle an unfair system built on slavery and genocide. And then the wild fires and debates…

For many of us with sensitive souls, it can feel like we’re witnessing an endless cycle of hurt, aggression and bad news. But what do you do when you want to stand in integrity, but you also need a little reprieve?
Now more than ever we need to work with our hearts and minds to bring ourselves back into balance, make friends with our discomfort and cultivate more patience and understanding.
That’s why I created my new, live class Meditation and Working with Fear and Aggression. Over three sessions (held live via Zoom and a a pre-recorded talk on the body and trauma), we’ll discuss how to navigate our feelings during times of war and trauma and you’ll receive recorded meditations to provide grounding during this time.
The live sessions will be a mix of meditations, teachings, and discussions. The live Zoom gatherings will focus on working with fear and aggression, based on Pema Chodron’s teachings in “Practicing Peace in Times of War.” The pre-recorded informational talk will address how to keep yourself “in the window of tolerance” and how to identify symptoms of trauma, which many folks are experiencing in this political climate.
You will receive the recorded talk, 2 live talks, and a grounding meditation that will start to show you how to reign in angry or fearful thoughts for just $99:
Live sessions will be delivered live 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Tuesday, 10/20 and 10/27. (Just in time for election season.)
