Through your NO to your YES

About the event
Do you ever feel like you lose yourself in connection to others and struggle to express yourself authentically?
Are you in touch with your authentic YES and NO in every situation, and do you feel safe enough to communicate it?
When we are not in touch with our authentic YES and NO we adapt to the needs of others in an unhealthy way.
We are disconnected from ourselves and therefore we cannot connect authentically to the other.
Because many of us have done this for most of our lives, we need to practice reconnecting with ourselves before we connect to others, if we want to have healthier relationships in our lives.
That’s what we will explore together during this day.
Together we will open a field where we create a sense of safety & belonging from within ourselves through nervous system awareness, conscious communication tools, embodiment practices & heart opening sharing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Come curious to explore this theme through embodiment practices, mindful observation & sharing.
We will use techniques and tools inspired by circling, mindfulness, authentic relating, embodied intimacy, somatic experiencing, trauma theory and yoga.
Everything we do has the intention of connecting you with yourself, your body & nervous system before you connect with others.
All human beings are welcome regardless of previous experience, relationship status & gender.
Every exercise is optional but you can bring a partner / friend to couple with if that makes you feel more at ease.
The event will be held in English unless the whole group speaks swedish.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING:
“Through these workshops I discovered a new way of being. I was re-introduced to feeling my body and using it as an additional tool to make more informed choices about where I really want my life to go, moment to moment. The exercises are also perfectly used outside the workshop to come closer to people in my life.” / Sotiris
”Beyond the awkwardness the whole universe opened up in the eyes right in front of me”. / Sandra, participant“
"Thank you for a beautifully held connection circle yesterday. It felt huge to be a part of and witness the authentic connections that took place under your holding of the space.I feel richer as a result from what I got to experience and I’m looking forward to the next circle”. / Mats, participant
ABOUT SOMATIC RELATING
Deep down most of us long to relate more authentically: to feel met, seen & heard by one another while expressing our authentic self. Yet somehow we all struggle with it, in our awkward and sweet humaneness.
Our nervous system is wired to protect us from hurt, so we have developed coping mechanisms and relational patterns that start operating as soon as we feel unsafe - which is more often than not in a relational context.
As long as our nervous system does not feel safe we cannot be fully open, feel empathy or curiosity about others or dare to express our needs, boundaries & desires.
We are not fully there, so how can we expect to be fully met?
If we start to relate with our nervous system instead of against it, we can develop a sense of safety from within ourselves that then enables more authenticity, trust & vulnerability in our relationships.
Relating with our nervous system means gently training our somatic awareness so that we can start to recognize the state of our nervous system and notice our unmet needs.
It also means learning how to regulate our nervous system, observing when our coping mechanisms & relational patterns come up and meeting them with curiosity and empathy so that they can start to dissolve.
From this place we can start to relate with more of us present, which means that there is more of us here to be met and loved.
This is what Somatic Relating is all about.
Ida is here to reconnect you to the deep wisdom of your body and your true nature. She perceives herself as a relationship nerd and sees relationships as a possibility for both mutual and individual growth. Ida creates group fields in which our bodies guide us to a place where our hearts can meet, our nervous systems feel safe and all parts of us feel welcome.
She draws inspiration and knowledge from Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, Circling, Embodied Intimacy and attachment theory in her work and always leaves room for the unique wisdom of the group to guide her.
