Creating Space for Our Emotional Selves
Journeying through the menopause can throw up lots of unexpected, unwanted and uncomfortable emotions. In this workshop with psychotherapist Kelly Hearn, we will discover ways to make space for and sit with these difficult emotions.
Before we can come to some positive view of the other side of the menopause mountain – a ‘second spring’ that awaits – we need to acknowledge the seasons in between: autumn and winter. There is loss and letting go of what was as we create space for the new.
Expect to explore different experiential exercises with Kelly such as guided visualisation, journalling, drawing and intention setting. There will also be time for a Q&A session with Kelly.
In this workshop we will:
- Understand and explore our resistance to emotions
- Appreciate the wisdom in our emotions
- Learn the importance of lingering in the liminal space
- Discover various techniques to face our fears and work wisely with our challenges
This workshop is perfect if you are moving through the menopause or perimenopause and are looking for support as you navigate the emotional highs and lows.
