Soothing Anxiety: Online Daylongwith Oren Jay Sofer

November 16 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm

JOIN OREN FOR AN ONLINE DAYLONG SESSION

Anxiety is a completely natural human emotion. It’s our nervous system’s response to uncertainty, mild threat, or stress. Anxiety can be related to physical, emotional or psychological safety and is there (at least initially) to support us to create more safety. But when the stimulus is internal (emotional or psychological) and when anxiety becomes chronic, it interferes with our capacity for joy in life, as well as our ability to respond effectively to interpersonal relationships or broader, societal issues.

Contemplative practice offers a range of tools to help us understand anxiety, transform our relationship with it, and ultimately resolve the root inner causes of this friction. Join Oren for an online daylong program and learn tools to:

  • Soothe anxiety in body and mind

  • Understand the root causes of anxiety

  • Develop healthy habits of relating to fear, worry and anxiety

  • Translate anxiety into action

 

 

Sliding Scale: $100 – $35
