THE POWER & PRACTICE OF
A four-day experience with Angela Ai and David Sutcliffe
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS - NOVEMBER 18-21
Deep feeling is scary.
It takes us into the unknown inside ourselves, into the shadow of our psyche, into the emotions buried inside us since we were children.
But to make ourselves whole, we must be willing to know and reclaim these lost parts.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to discover who you are when you don't hold anything back.
Using the somatic techniques of Core Energetics, and the healing power of the group, we’ll help you access, express, and liberate the long-held feelings that have kept you from realizing the unlimited power and potential of your being.
"When you withhold and repress your feelings, you impede the natural and spontaneous flow of your love, your joy, your creativity, and the natural abundance that wants to come to you."
In this workshop you will learn:
• How and why you learned to suppress your feelings.
• How emotional blocks create negative thought loops.
• Practices to help you safely release your emotions.
• Skills to help you master your triggers.
• How to set firm and compassionate boundaries.
• How to know and trust your intuition.
You will experience:
• The safety to feel and express all that you hold back.
• Powerful, life-changing breakthroughs.
• The freedom that comes when you surrender control.
• The sacred, healing power of groups.
• Deep intimacy with yourself and others.
• The wisdom and intelligence of your aliveness.
"I couldn't believe the deeply connected bonds that were formed between myself and almost complete strangers, and how sharing myself in a vulnerable way could ignite so much freedom and expression in me. I was able to go into my deepest/truest feelings and pain, and explore and express what was there in its most authentic form."
WHAT IS CORE ENERGETICS?
Core Energetics is a dynamic body-based process that works with our unconscious resistance to being fully alive and present. Core works with the body as a means of exploring the unconscious mind. Physical techniques are used to support the expression of held-back feelings, with the intention of bringing consciousness to them. The liberation and integration of these feelings brings greater awareness, presence, self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and a renewed connection to the physical, emotional, and spiritual vitality that is our birthright.
