About the event
Happy New You!
The dawn of a New Year brings with it the hope for change - and we have all made grand resolutions to embody this transformation. We meditate on it, pray for it and strive day after day to cling onto fresh habits – yet find ourselves slipping back into familiar patterns that no longer serve us well. What is going on?
Well, before focusing on what’s ahead, let’s rewind and focus on our memory first - our muscle memory, to be precise.
Muscle memory makes it easier for our brains and nervous systems to build strong connections when performing certain activities. As we practice something repeatedly, like throwing darts at a target for example - the finger motions may remain the same but each time they become more precise as our brain encodes this movement pattern into its "memory". This same concept is also how patterns of thoughts or emotions can be instilled in us through repetitive experiences - both positive and negative ones! When faced with a similar situation to one that may have caused trauma before, the body will remember this experience and take steps to protect itself from any further harm. That's why it's important for us to create healthy habits so those memories work in our favor toward growth instead of holding on tightly to anything unproductive stuck in the past.
While our mind may tell us that it's safe to take a chance and try something new, trauma or anxiety can lurk in the background of our life like an uninvited guest. When this happens, fear-based memories from past experiences tell us to run away, we can’t trust this! This ‘running away’ can sabotage beautiful opportunities, like a new job or even a new healthy relationship.
In order to begin building new memories that will help you to create positive and lasting changes, I have designed a transformative workshop experience! Through activities like an invigorating cacao ceremony, powerful somatic exercises, and making your very own vision board - you will start to unlock the potential of all five senses. From smell and taste, to touch, sight and sound, get ready to explore limitless possibilities.
