This workshop will introduce participants to a way of relaxing and becoming attuned with both the physical presence and the inner self.
We will use the body and breathing as a focus to learn to engage more fully with the here-and-now and shift our presence from doing to being. Through becoming attentive observers of body sensations, thoughts, feelings and behaviour, we are able to release any tensions and practice acceptance rather than either becoming attached to experiences or avoid them. Hence, we manage to handle situations from a place of balance and calmness, rather than surrendering our power to anxiety or fear. By learning to experience this state in a group and through regular practice, you may discover the benefits it can bring during both demanding periods and at moments of enjoying daily life. Learning to relax and maintain a calm attitude toward challenges of every day living is known to be a core skill in managing yourself at a personal level, but also in handling your workload and relationships with peers and colleagues in the workplace in the future.
Please wear comfortable and layered clothing. If possible, please also bring a cushion and/or a light blanket with you. This workshop is based on the relaxation techniques as taught and delivered at the Servers’ Society (‘Omilos Eksipiretiton’).
