We need a strong mind to cope with the intensity of modern life. There are ways to foster this. As we heal from trauma, we develop strength and resilience. Our mind and system settles and we become calmer.
We can’t emotionally self-regulate on our own. Humans co-regulate, which means we need to be around people who are well regulated themselves for our brain to develop this way. Most of us didn’t have this enough as children.
Our lives are very stressful! Time and financial pressure, moving away from the support of extended families, childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, social isolation and anxiety, addiction, social media and screens, global catastrophe – these profoundly affect our lives.
Some of the habits in our mind, like judging and shaming ourselves, are actually symptoms of unhealed trauma and core deficiency beliefs. We are triggered by other people because it is reflecting these back to us. We need to safely connect within, to know ourselves and become our own friend. This friendliness within also transforms our relationships with others.
Basics of a healthy mind in everyday life:
Mindfulness and being present
Good nutrition, exercise, sleep
Volunteer, give of yourself
Reduce inputs that cause stress and increase inputs that build resilience
Join us to participate in the learning and practices to build strength and resilience in your mind.
Cost $79. As always, classes are free for regular participants in daily practice.
