Shock and Stress is about establishing safety, developing body awareness and practising boundary setting. It will provide some DIY tools with which to begin stress management. A method of non-verbal life review will help with discerning pattern and meaning in what otherwise may continue to be felt and lived as a chaos of shocks and stresses. Shock and Stress is designed as a shallow end experience to better prepare you to swim with deep end experience.
What on Earth sessions aim to help you move past overwhelm and engage with active hope. What on Earth takes place over 3 sessions but each can be taken independently.
