Self Discovery for Mental Health
with Madison Kolla R.Ac
May 6 at 2:00-4:00 pm
Whether it’s anxiety, agitation or working through experiences of depression, grief and lack of motivation, we all struggle at times with our mental health. Join Madison in exploring practices such as written self-inquiry, self-compassion, and mindful awareness which teach us to turn inward and truly meet ourselves where we are. In this two hour workshop, we will entertain the possibility that mental “unwellness” can be an opportunity to know ourselves in our entirety with less resistance to the experiences that shape us.We will also discuss Chinese Medicine’s System of the Five Phases, and how these manifest in the always transforming and shifting cycles of our life. By understanding that we – like everything else in the natural world- must move through cycles of inspiration, growth, then dormancy, we can better accept ourselves no matter what phase we might currently be in.
