Event Details

 

Anxiety is a perfectly normal human emotion and without it we could not get out of bed in the morning. We as people have highly developed anxiety traits because we are all descended from the people who survived the world of large roaming predators whom we competed with for survival. So our ancestors were the ones that were the fastest up the tree or into the back of the cave while less anxious humanoids were consumed. The fight- flight response is deeply embedded in our primal brain and it is hypervigilant for things waiting to kill us.

This is then laced with the most primal fear of all – fear of death. [and just quietly if anyone you know tells you they are not afraid of dying they are kidding themselves completely and the denial is just stronger in them – stand them on the edge of a cliff with your hand in the small of their back and see how at peace they are lol]

We are so afraid of death we pretend that it doesn’t exist [deep down where it actually matters] and while fear must be met and transcended it therefore leaks into other things.

The combined result of this is that we can become very afraid of things that aren’t actually dangerous and once this starts it goes through this white anting kind of process in which it spreads out making you more and more anxious about more and more things!

This is highly destructive and becomes increasingly complicated as we then set up little rules and rituals to keep the anxiety at bay which of course only reinforces to us that there really must be something to be afraid of after all.

This series will take participants through the whole process of what anxiety and depression are, what triggers it, what it produces in us, how we behave in the face of that – which simply reinforces the whole process again.

In simple clearly understood processes you will learn about the physiology of what happens, non medicated ways to deal with it, how to recognize and interrupt the thoughts that generate it and how to modify your behavior in the face of it – all of which lead to a powerful possibility that you can live free of it!!

 

This will commence on Monday evening the 18th March at 7.30pm  for an hour and a half and will run for 10 weeks cost $25 per week during which you will learn many simple and effective tools for reclaiming power over your life.
