What we're about

Have you ever regretted NOT doing something?

Has self doubt and anxiety ever held you back in life?

Was there ever a time you wish you had said or done something, but didn't?

If so, this meetup is for you. Fear and self doubt all too often limit us from the best part of ourselves, and from the best things in life. Whether its trying something new with your life, or approaching a stranger, too many of us hesitate out of self doubt. Windows of opportunities come and go quickly, and life is way too short to be held back by fear!

Come and learn effective techniques to turn crippling self doubts, anxieties and fears into self-confidence, freedom and peace of mind.

This meetup includes education, discussion, and exercises so you can use these lessons outside of the meetup.

If you practice, you'll get results that will make you happy. So come, learn, and meet other locals who are interested in overcoming their self doubts and fears. This meetup is not therapy or professional help.

What is Confidence? & What is Fear? For You?

Originally as babies, we are only born with 2 fears. The fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Everything else is learned.

And everything we've learned can be unlearned. The patterns of thought, behavior and belief that guide us can be changed.

Bruce Springstein and Al Pacino both described the same exact physical feelings in the their gut, butterflies, etc. And for one of them those sensations meant stage fright, and for the other those exact same sensations meant excitement.

Let's explore different ways to create more confidence and release fear. We'll talk, share and we'll invite various coaches and practitioners to share their methodologies. And I'll share some of the techniques I've learned from hypnosis, NLP, somatic re-patterning, massage and other techniques.

We'll grow more confident and change together.

Sincerely Yours,

Joel - http://www.joelelfman.com

Introduction to Core Energetics (Body-Oriented Psychotherapy)

Nicolai Grosell, CCEP Office

Come experience the holistic evolutionary healing modality of Core Energetics! ***We will start on time and there will be no entry to the Meetup after 6:05pm so please arrive early. Please note that this Meetup is run only by Nicolai Grosell (www.nicolaigrosellccep.com) who is a male colleague of Lubna Khalid. To reach Lubna, please contact her directly at www.lubnakhalid.com.*** Core Energetics is a body-oriented psychotherapy that works with a person's emotional blocks, often held in the body. Life can be more joyful when old pain is released through energetic movement. We bring consciousness to old patterns to free ourselves and make lasting changes. Focusing on a holistic process involving body, emotion, mind and spirit, Core Energetics is a mode of healing that combines bodywork, psychotherapy and spiritual process. Core Energetics is applicable to many problems people face such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, addiction, childhood and adult trauma, general dissatisfaction or a search for more meaning in their life. This method also works with stress management and chronic physical problems, including sexual dysfunction. A typical session consists of a combination of traditional talk therapy to bring consciousness and awareness to issues as well as various body movements to activate held energy in the body. Dr. John Pierrakos founded Core Energetics in 1978 and most forms of body psychotherapy and transpersonal work in the United States are informed by his work.

Radiant Goddess Dance Temple

New York Live Arts

$25.00

The Radiant Goddess Dance Temple Dance Your Emotions Manifest Your Desires Presented by The Dancing Path Facilitated by Trinity Saturday, June 1 7:10-9:45pm Get Tickets here- https://radiantgoddess8.eventbrite.com/?aff=MUJ This incredibly transformational & powerful experience is an opportunity for women to come together in sisterhood to support each other in living a radiant, healthy, juicy and lit-up life. It's an opportunity for you to express the full range of your emotions causing you to feel, to release and to be more alive, present, connected, authentic and radiant. It is a space to be and move however you feel in a dark room. You may also just lay down or sit still. We have very few places in our society where we are welcomed to unabashedly express all of ourselves - the light & the dark. This is that space. We will begin the evening dancing out our emotions in a dark, dimly lit room. The dance will not be facilitated. Music will be played that embodies various emotions to help you get in touch with and embody your feelings. You are free to make sounds and move however you wish. Following the dance we will share about our experience and our desires for our lives. The evening will culminate with a powerful manifestation ritual to support us in manifesting our hearts desires. Dancing our emotions is like taking an energetic shower. We cleanse ourselves from the inside and release anything that is not serving us. Afterwards we feel lighter, clear, radiant and more in touch with our true essence. We live in a society where we are taught not to feel. We are taught to disconnect from our feelings which leaves us feeling disconnected to ourselves and each other. We are told not to cry, not to be upset. Only the so called positive emotions are socially acceptable. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to hold down our feelings. It also has the potential to make us unhealthy and lose touch with ourselves, making us feel dull, numb, disconnected and unhappy. Expressing our emotions helps us to release them and supports us in getting unstuck. When we feel, we heal. The only way out is thru. If we desire to be & feel radiant, alive and healthy then we can not by pass our emotions. The degree to which we feel our pain is the degree to which we can allow ourselves to feel our joy. You will have the opportunity to dance the full scale of your emotions. We will dance any feelings of frustration and anger. We will then move on to dancing and expressing sadness and grief. Once we have expressed these feelings we will move to songs of forgiveness and empowerment. Lastly we will dance to sexy songs to turn ourselves back on and get us into a lit up and radiant state. This event is for female-bodied or female identifying people only.
