Healing Trauma: An Intimate Workshop for Women with Jen Brown
It's that time of year when many of us get together with old friends and family, revisiting our pasts. We all have wounds from the past, whether they affect us each day of our lives or not. During this two-hour workshop, we will open up our bodies, hearts, and minds to look at past traumas, make space for them, and bring healing care to these parts of ourselves. I will explain the nature of trauma, how it lives in our bodies, and we will explore strategies and techniques for working with trauma. I'll lead the group through supportive, powerful exercises that everyone can use at home. It is my aim to have each person leave feeling embodied and nurtured. We will primarily be using Kundalini Yoga and Insight Meditation techniques to support us, though no experience in yoga or meditation is necessary for this workshop (truly). And there is no need to bring a yoga mat.
This workshop is exclusively for those who identify as women. It will be a safe space to facilitate care and understanding. We will keep the attendance to a maximum of 8 people so the atmosphere can remain intimate.
Please show up just before 7 so we can begin on time.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
$25 before 11/17. $30 after 11/17.
Jen grew up in Pennsylvania, studied journalism and German at Boston University, and worked in the music business for several years in the United States and Germany. From her early teens into her mid-20s, she spent a lot of time and energy working to overcome personal trauma, but couldn't make any major breakthroughs while staying within the confines of the psychological realm. In 2013, she hit a wall when a series of back-to-back life challenges arose and her former methods of coping didn't adequately support her. The experience propelled her to go deeper and face various blocks on the bodily and spiritual levels. It was a transformative journey that ultimately changed Jen's lifestyle and career path. Through opening to pain and loss, Jen has learned how to find acceptance, freedom, and love. The work she shares with others is a result of the work she's done and continues to do herself. Jen provides a committed, loving approach to long-term change. She's a believer in having to open to one's difficulties with awareness and kindness in order to get to the other side and experience wholehearted living. Jen is a meditation and yoga teacher in New York and Pennsylvania. Her main teachers are Tara Brach and Gurmukh. Learn more at heartgrounding.com.
