• Family Constellations - evening workshop with Liz Sleeper

    Cornerstone Community Centre

    £29.00

    Join us in exploring and transforming the hidden trans-generational influences behind our behaviours with one of the most experienced Family Constellations facilitators in the South-East! *** Please note that we do the majority of our marketing via our mailing list and on Facebook. As a result, some events that might appear as attracting little or no interest here on Meetup will most definitely go ahead since the majority of attendees don't come through Meetup anyway. So, if you'd like to attend but weren't sure if anyone else was coming, do come - we look forward to meeting you! *** WHY COME? Often if we are stuck in our lives we are unable to move forwards because we cannot see what is blocking us - usually our own emotional blocks. Family constellations (http://hovestressbusters.co.uk/pages/technique/family.html) reveal those hidden blocks so we can find ways to move on. This sounds a bit like therapy, but it is different. As one participant said it's like 6 months of therapy in one day. Participating in a group can feel very scary and exposing, but the joy of the group work is that people only need expose as much of themselves as they feel comfortable with. It can be a huge relief to see other people's constellations and learn that your issues are similar to others'. Participating in a group lets people have an experience of being held and respected in the group. Workshops inevitably end with people who were strangers a few hours ago, departing with deep heartfelt hugs.

Anyone who has an issue in their life, they just can't seem to fix. Perhaps the issue is longstanding - perhaps you just can't get on with your mother, or father, or you have a sibling who is really, really difficult. Perhaps you are worried about one of your children, and you can't seem to figure out how to help them. At a recent workshop we had one participant who felt they could never be good enough and was tired of their own pursuit of perfection, another participant had a sister who would not speak to them. Once we set up the constellation and could see all of the influences on their family system - not just personal influences like losses of family members, but also global influences such as the war, and being in a particular place at a particular time, the issues the participants were facing made much more sense to them.

  • Stress Release Exercise TRE and Therapeutic Tango - talk & demonstration evening

    Join us for another evening of stress busting with Deborah Brown and Genevieve Picquart! THERAPEUTIC TANGO: Tango has many benefits - physical, mental and spiritual. There are many articles written about this. The tango music itself is well known for lifting the mood. Genevieve Picquart has been a Psychotherapist/Counsellor for over 30 years when she discovered the power of tango. Her therapeutic approach to tango is based on many years of studies on the association between psyche and soma. The best thing about Therapeutic Tango is that you don’t have to be a dancer at all to reap its many benefits! Would you like to experience what this “meditative yoga of dance” can offer you? During this demo, Genevieve will invite us to play very easy and enjoyable games and exercises that will give us very useful insights about ourselves and the ways we relate to other people. No steps will be taught, therefore, if you think you have two left feet, please be open to surprises! Just bring yourself and we'll all dance in socks. No partner needed. No high heels. Nothing to do with “Strictly come dancing”. Participation is of course voluntary, but we hope many of you will join in. SHAKING OFF THE STRESS: TRE® is a series of seven exercises that allow us to release stress and tension naturally. As mammals, our physiology is designed to experience, survive and release tension and trauma from the body. However due to human brain development and conditioning we have learnt to suppress our natural ability to release tension like other mammals do - by shaking. Deborah Brown is one of just 20 certified providers of TRE® in England with over nine years of experience working with adults, babies and children as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner in the Brighton and Hove area. Her passion for TRE®, as with Craniosacral Therapy, is that the process empowers the body to shift towards health by releasing tension and restoring balance naturally. She is thrilled to be working with others on their journeys using TRE® as they explore how it is to trust in the wisdom of the body. This talk will demonstrate what to expect during a TRE® session and offer simple take-home tips and tools for managing your stress by starting to self- regulate your nervous system. TRE® is something to be experienced! The Hove StressBusters Team is looking forward to welcoming you all to this exciting event! *** Please note that we do the majority of our marketing via our mailing list and on Facebook.

  • Creative Constellations and Reiki Healing - talk & demonstration evening

    Cornerstone Community Centre

    £7.00

    Join us for another evening of stress busting with Kate Collier and Jelena Goranovic! REIKI HEALING: AN EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE? Dr Jelena Goranovic, the programme director of Hove StressBusters, is a stress management consultant. As a psychopharmacologist with over 15 years of research and teaching experience in the area of mental health, she is keen to bridge the gap between the 'scientific' and 'alternative' therapeutic approaches which prevents people from accessing the approaches which might be very helpful to them. There are many wellbeing approaches out there and regardless of what their mechanism of action is supposed to be, different things are helpful to different people. Whether it's a placebo effect or not is irrelevant - the point is to enable everyone to find the wellbeing approaches that work for them. Jelena will lead an open discussion about the evidence for the effectiveness of Reiki healing, from clinical studies to anecdotal reports by practitioners or people who underwent treatment. This is going to be an opportunity for Reiki practitioners, scientists and and anyone else interested in this topic to share the facts, knowledge and experience of Reiki. All welcome to join in! CREATIVE CONSTELLATIONS To live creatively in this world and be your own artist of life whether you apply it to music, art, science, food or any other field or body of knowledge, we need a process for a deeper understanding of ourselves, what we want and what gets in the way. We can get stuck in images of ourselves created by others and live other people's projections. Parents often try to live their lives through their children and we may still hold what they wanted for us. We may live their patterns out in our relationship to ourself and those we love, perhaps our own children. Transgenerational survival mechanisms may stop us seeing ourselves and our creative potential. Kate Collier describes her integrated approach to helping you understand yourself more, gaining self-confidence, greater will and motivation, your own authentic voice, and a healthier relationship to others. Using guided meditation, personal mandala making and/or the Identity Constellations process with Intention, we can let go of transgenerational patterns and the obstacles of early psychotrauma which affect our identity, and truly become who we are with the will to be just that - an artist of our own life. Kate is a psychosynthesis and psychotrauma therapist who has developed her own mandala method. She is also a pub poet, sings at open mike, dances, and in her sixties is learning the guitar and loves it! She thanks her own process in Identity Constellations and mandala making for giving her this senior dream.

  • No More Insomnia & Family Constellations - talk & demonstration evening

    Cornerstone Community Centre

    £7.00

    Join us for another evening of stress busting with Nicki Gillard and Liz Sleeper! NO MORE INSOMNIA: We need to change the way we think and talk about sleep. Insomnia is so widespread and causes a great deal of stress – but it is possible to free yourself from the stressful trap of insomnia, by changing your mindset. You can ditch the negative mindset that creates insomnia and switch to a new mindset that leads to natural sleep. You can learn how to leave sleep to your body and how to rest your body and your mind. Nicki Gillard’s techniques come from her own experience of struggling with chronic insomnia and finding her own way out of it. She calls her therapeutic process the Insomnia Ditch-and-Switch. She will talk about the technique and the practical skills you can use. There will be an opportunity for you to do some mantra doodling! FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS: Family Constellations - or transgenerational healing - are a powerful means of identifying and transforming the hidden forces that impact on our everyday behaviours and choices. varesolving difficult family dynamics. Family constellation workshops use human representatives to "map" a person's family and explore the difficult family dynamics across generations. People participate in a workshop on two levels, either as an issue holder - if you have a burning issue that you are desperate to solve -, or as a representative, which enables you to find out more about constellation work as well as gain insights into family systems and dynamics which affect us all. It is difficult to explain or imagine family constellations, but people who attend a workshop come away with a deeply held experience of honour and respect, a stronger sense of connection with themselves and their family of origin, and a "touching of the soul". Liz Sleeper is passionate about Family Constellation work and its impact on people's lives. In this talk, Liz will introduce us to this incredibly powerful approach and enable us to gain some first-hand experience of what a typical workshop would involve. The Hove StressBusters team is looking forward to welcoming you to this fantastic event. *** Please note that we do the majority of our marketing via our mailing list and on Facebook.

Workshops inevitably end with people who were strangers a few hours ago, departing with deep heartfelt hugs. Read more about the Family Constellations approach: http://hovestressbusters.co.uk/pages/technique/family.html WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR? So who should come to our workshop? Anyone who has an issue in their life, they just can't seem to fix. Perhaps the issue is longstanding - perhaps you just can't get on with your mother, or father, or you have a sibling who is really, really difficult. Perhaps you are worried about one of your children, and you can't seem to figure out how to help them. At a recent workshop we had one participant who felt they could never be good enough and was tired of their own pursuit of perfection, another participant had a sister who would not speak to them. Once we set up the constellation and could see all of the influences on their family system - not just personal influences like losses of family members, but also global influences such as the war, and being in a particular place at a particular time, the issues the participants were facing made much more sense to them.

  • Improvised Comedy and Feeding Your Demons - talk &demonstration evening

    Cornerstone Community Centre

    £5.00

    Join us for another evening of stress busting with Julie Ulbricht and Emma Hiwaizi! *** Please note that we do the majority of our marketing via our mailing list and on Facebook. As a result, some events that might appear as attracting little or no interest here on Meetup will most definitely go ahead since the majority of attendees don't come through Meetup anyway. So, if you'd like to attend but weren't sure if anyone else was coming, do come - we look forward to meeting you! *** FEEDING YOUR DEMONS: A demon is anything which is an obstacle in your life and which is draining your energy. It could be a physical issue (e.g backache / chronic health problem) or an emotional issue (anger, anxiety etc.) It can also be used to work with addictions and relationship issues. So why would you want to feed a demon? Feeding Your Demons is a transformative technique where you turn towards the thing you wish would go away and instead open a dialogue with it. Feeding the ‘demon’ transforms the negative energy and the process leaves you with a feeling of inner peace as the ‘demon’ has been accepted and reintegrated back into your psyche. Julie Ulbricht is an Ayurvedic practitioner and Family Constellations facilitator, working in London and Sussex. Julie studied Feeding Your Demons with Lama Tsultrim Allione, who created the process, which is based on an 11th century Tibetan Buddhist healing ritual. IMPROVISED COMEDY: Playfulness has been linked to improved creativity and problem solving skills and some research scientists even believe adults who play more actually live longer! In this introduction to improvised comedy you are warmly invited to step outside of your comfort zone into the world of improv, where we say - YES!, accept and build, explore emotion, status and sub-text! Practise your listening skills, being in the moment and create comedy without even trying to be funny! We will play some simple games, practice accents, status and emotion and play some simple short-form games. Emma Hiwaizi is a laughter yoga leader with a passion for improv. She has a background in publishing and co-founded Juno Magazine and the Green Guide for London - both of which she edited for a number of years. The Hove StressBusters team is looking forward to welcoming you to this fantastic event.
