Have you tried, unsuccessfully, to resolve negative patterns of thought and reactivity? Do you feel you sabotage your own efforts at having a positive life?
If you answered “yes" to the above questions, this workshop is for you.
Most of us enjoy the feeling of well-being. If our circumstances are good, we feel that we are in a positive flow with life. However, sooner or later something or someone comes along and BAM that flow gets interrupted! We lose our sense of well-being and get lost in reactivity to the negative event/person.
If something or someone on the outside doesn’t interrupt our well-being, we might do it on the inside. We might interrupt ourselves by ruminating on negative thoughts.
Our patterns of self-destructive behavior are grooved into our neural pathways. We don’t have much mastery over regulating our responses to what life blows our way. Regular talk therapy can shine a light on these patterns of behavior, but it often falls short of actually changing them. IBP offers the tools you are seeking to change those neural pathways.
This workshop will experientially give you a chance to identify your undermining patterns, and to understand why they happen. You will learn how to resolve your destructive behaviors and thoughts and get tools for being awake, grounded and present in your well-being. The workshop includes strategies for managing any future interruptions.
