Transforming Fear: How to turn stress and anxiety into well-being
Teacher: Albert Buhr
Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R350 surcharge
Dates: Friday 14 September 2018 - Sunday 16 September 2018
To reduce the suffering in the world, we need the skills to reduce our own. This workshop will teach you the practical, effective tools to do exactly that. Unless it is released, stress gets locked into our bodies, accumulating until it erupts in panic, aggression or illness. Only a bold and brave reorientation can heal the roots of the growing epidemic of anxiety and depression that psychiatry has failed to quell with its quick-fix suppression of symptoms. Deep relaxation is an art, and the doorway to profound bliss.
