“We run away because we’re afraid of suffering. The block of pain and sorrow in us feels overwhelming. Even if we have time, we don’t come home to ourselves. We try to keep ourselves constantly entertained—watching television or movies, socializing, or using alcohol or drugs—because we don’t want to experience that suffering all over again.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)

This class series is about coming home to ourselves, reclaiming our power by resolving trauma and reconnecting to our aliveness and agency. Through science-based somatic and mindfulness practices, we’ll explore ways to cultivate safety and kindness, build resilience, and balance inner and outer stressors. Developing tools to overcome habitual fight, flight, and freeze reactions, we reclaim our power and reconnect with inner strength, peace, and aliveness. With a focus on the profound challenges of eco-anxiety and responding to racial injustice, we cultivate the resilience and agency necessary for well-being and engaging in transformative action in our communities.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
