“Anxiety can be a positive, useful phenomenon. It assures our safety from risking what we feel would endanger our very existence. Anxiety appears when deep in ourselves we know that we have no other choice – no alternative way of acting… Without learning to know ourselves as intimately as we possibly can, we limit our choice. Life is not very sweet without freedom of choice. Change is very difficult with no alternatives in sight; we then resign ourselves to not dealing with our difficulties as if they were prescribed by heaven.”
Moshe Feldenkrais, The Elusive Obvious
Are you feeling that your anxiety is not a “positive, useful phenomenon” but rather it is limiting you from making changes in your life?
Maybe you are feeling exhausted by life, rather than inspired by it?
Or, perhaps you’re finding it difficult to breathe with ease?
In an uncertain, ever-changing world, we develop stable patterns of behavior through spontaneous engagement with our surroundings. These responsive patterns allow us to function successfully – to survive in our specific environment.
Sometimes these habits and patterns become outdated and limit us from responding with resilience and choice to our current situation.
If you’re feeling anxious, stressed-out, or overwhelmed by uncertainty in your life, and you need support in building emotional resilience and a sense of agency within yourself, join Fritha and Sarah for a workshop that combines Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) with the Feldenkrais Method®.
EFT tapping is a gentle technique that helps reduce stress and the effects of prior experiences so that we can stay present to the moment, responding with choice rather than (re)acting without choice.
The Feldenkrais Method® provides opportunities to sense, through movement, our habits and patterns and how they relate to our sense of ourselves in the world. Each Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lesson is unique and offers simple, gentle movements to experience oneself in new ways.
Combining EFT tapping with the Feldenkrais Method® offers participants the opportunity to explore their experience of posture, emotions, personal beliefs, self-image and how behavior and habits are reflected in body and mind. Through experiencing themselves in new ways, choice becomes possible.
