And it can get tiring and make us feel a bit wired.
And you have new to do lists and have joined some new groups or signed up to some new apps and routines to manage all the new things that are happening. And sometimes this is successful and you are totally on top of your shit and feeling centred and in control and sometimes not.
Sometimes, even for the calmest and most capable of you, it can all feel overwhelming and there are times when you want to switch everything off and hide under the duvet. And if you are reading this from under a duvet, I salute you.
To me, it feels like we are being encouraged as a society to dive inwards as much as outwards.
We, as humans, are not designed to be fully outward facing, fully engaged, fully productive, fully in our head all the time, despite what some of the internet enthusiasm might imply.
And we are very used to being in our head because a lot of life demands that. But when it comes to connecting to our partners, our families, our friends, ourselves – fully, the head may not have the answers.
In my experience, the body and specifically the heart, is where I come to calm it all down, to find connection with myself, to find trust and comfort, to centre myself on the timeline of alllll the future and allll the past and ultimately to reach out to those in my own circle more effectively, compassionately, more completely and more authentically.
This is the ultimate reward for being in my heart and here’s what’s good to know – it’s simple, it’s loving, it doesn’t take long, it is a remembering, not a new learning and it gets easier when you practice and are supported.
I personally draw on meditation, touch, journalling, sound, movement and ritual, and so have started sharing this and supporting others to practice the same in face to face (currently online) groups.
So here I am ready to bring this work to you, wherever you are, in a weekly online circle.
I will share the techniques I use to drop out of my head into my heart, to navigate my emotional territory, to trust and allow, to know that whatever my reactions are, they are ok, they are allowed.
I draw on yogic principles, movement, breathwork techniques, journalling and ceremonial practices, lunar awareness and a whole lotta humour and tea.
I offer space, for you to connect with your heart, to be heard and to connect with others in these times.
If you are curious about how to weave between your head and your heart, are a bit exhausted by overthinking or just need a bit of time out for your emotions then come and join us.
It just requires a desire to listen and show up for yourself.
You do not have to commit to lots, you can just come to one.
They will take place one Monday evenings at 6.30pm UK Time / 7.30pm CET unless we collectively decide on a different time. I will change the time here if that happens.
They will continue for the foreseeable future.
They are offered on a donation basis, you can join for free or if you can afford it you can pay me a donation on Paypal.me
Send me an email or FB message at least an hour before the session and I will send you the sign up password.
