Join us for this 30-minute workshop to learn about your default defence mechanisms and why you respond in certain ways.

About this event

Do you find yourself getting frustrated at yourself for repeating the same behaviours? Do you find yourself responding to family and friends in a way you don't want to?

Would you like to change, but don't know how? Are you great at making plans, but then find you always default back to the same patterns you've always done?

We all have things we would like to change about ourselves, or new things we would like to do. And the productivity, focus and self-help books only get us so far.

What we need is a deeper understanding of why we respond in the ways we do, and develop more compassion for patterns that we might not feel favourably about.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • the neuroscience of how and why we develop patterns in our brain and body;
  • basic theory of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy;
  • how to increase your self-compassion & approach yourself with more ease;
  • simple body-based exercises for increasing our connection to our bodies.

Rather than giving you a lecture on the theory of the above, this workshop will be highly practical and you'll learn more about yourself, your patterns and your behaviour.

Why is embodiment important in relationships?

You can’t feel another person if you don’t feel what’s happening in your body. How we feel another person is through paying attention and recognising the sensations in our body. We feel our own body in response to the other body, we feel our own emotions in response to their emotions. That feedback mechanism gets disrupted if you are not sensitive. Responsiveness within yourself translates to responsiveness to outside yourself.

Invest 30 minutes in yourself to improve your compassion, relationships, energy levels, time management, and overall happiness & wellbeing.

Keep learning with us

Every first and third Sunday of the month, Centrd Life host a free workshop to help you cultivate a stronger connection to your bodily sensations and as a result, improve your emotional awareness.

As we go through this journey together, we help you strip away layers of habitual behaviour that once helped you cope and develop better habits in line with who you can be.

With these new habits, we learn to set boundaries without building walls, create better relationships with ourselves and others and become better & compassionate leaders.
