Tension/Trauma Release FRI AUG 4th, 7-9pm

June 26, 2017
A little more about what TRE is: TRE (Tension & Trauma Release Exercise) is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. How is TRE® the answer for stress and trauma? Because the therapeutic tremor is effective in intense trauma, it easily works with daily stress and tension. For more than 20 years, Dr. Berceli has been teaching people across the globe how to harness this innate ability to heal trauma, release stress, and reclaim health. Currently 35 countries have active certification programs and TRE® books have been translated into 10 languages. Documented benefits include: • Release of chronic tension and emotional or physical trauma • Increased energy and stamina • Less anxiety • Relief from body aches, including back pain, headaches, and TMJ • Enhanced ability to stay focused and connected • Improved sleep • Better mood • Greater mobility Simple to learn, easy to practice, TRE® is a powerful, evidence-based solution to stress management. TRE® allows everyone to feel better and be better in their work. With regular supervised practice, the results multiply and are quantifiable on all levels. The chaos that swirls around people stuck in trauma cycles is often all consuming and prevents sustained progress. And for those working in the non-profit trenches, it can be a painful and draining experience, leading to burnout and vicarious trauma. TRE® is a simple, effective, self-empowering modality that releases trauma at its root. As an integrated somatic mindfulness practice, TRE® boosts capacity and increases resiliency. Meant to be taught in groups, TRE® is inherently community-based; and, because it accesses basic human physiology, it is always cross-culturally adaptive. TRE® is cost-effective trauma-informed care at its best.

Mindfulness Eating SAT JUL 22nd, 11-1230pm

June 18, 2017
This first part of the workshop will cover the damaging effects of dieting, the cycle of eating, and how intuitive eating can alternatively create a healthy relationship with food, mind, and body. Intuitive eating helps us be mindful by incorporating principles such as honoring hunger and making peace with food. Some of the benefits of intuitive and mindful eating are cultivating a trust with ourselves on hunger/fullness cues, enjoying food more, and helping digestion. There will also be an activity where participants will be guided through a mindful eating exercise. The second part of the workshop will cover the “diet culture” food messages we are exposed to through our family, friends, co-workers, and media and how they can damage our relationship with food over time. Many people are left believing that they must choose between feeling deprived of their favorite treats or guilty for indulging. By learning to greet our hunger and food experience with kindness, we allow ourselves to more fully enjoy the sensuality and pleasure food has to offer. Together we will explore ways to leave food baggage at the door! Amanda Sauceda is a lifestyle-focused registered dietitian nutritionist who guides and supports women to identify and enjoyably pursue their personal wellness vision.  She specializes in working with women who want to discover their personal wellness vision through nutrition coaching and therapeutic diets for digestive disorders. Sarah Zepeda is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in the incorporation of mindfulness principles and Cognitive Behavioral techniques in the treatment of adults with Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma. After experiencing profound benefits from her own mindfulness and meditation practice developed in her teenage years, she was early on an ardent believer in the mind’s ability to heal itself. Now that research has caught up and clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of meditation on neutral integration, she is delighted to share these strategies with others on their journey to becoming their highest self.

We will create a ceremonial circle to share our new moon intentions and infuse them into an item to take home for ritual. Afterwards,we will take a healing sound journey with crystal bowls, drum, rattle, Indian Shruti and ancient medicine songs to open our hearts to all the infinite possibilities and release stuck and stagnant energy that is no longer serving us.
