About the event
– This event will be held in swedish if all participants speak swedish –
Most of us long for harmonious relationships, yet relational triggers & conflict are part of any relationship and not something that we can evolve past.
Often we tend to see triggers & conflict as a sign that something is wrong and either end the relationship or try to avoid conflict at any cost through suppressing our needs.
What if there is another way?
What if any trigger can be a guide to get to know yourself better?
What if relational challenges can be an invitation to look within and meet what is unmet?
What if conflict can be a way to grow deeper and more trusting relationships, if we meet it together?
This workshop is an opportunity to get to know yourself & your nervous system better and to increase your understanding of how trauma affects all of your relationships.
You will learn tools & practices for nervous system regulation, conscious communication & somatic awareness that can be applied to any relational context in your life.
This workshop will help you to prevent, move through and repair triggers & conflicts from a more trauma informed place while balancing empathy & self-responsibility.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Come curious to explore this theme through embodiment practices, mindful observation & heart opening 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.
