Unpacking Emotional Triggers
In this workshop we talk about emotional triggers and how they drive our actions, often leading to negative consequences and dysfunctional behaviour. We look at the physical sensations that arise with stimulus, and identify what is truth vs what is the emotional story we attach to. Using the teachings of Gabor Mate’s Compassionate Inquiry Approach, and Somatic Therapy techniques we use the body’s wisdom and felt sense to unpack core beliefs, adaptive functions, and sub-personalities; empowering us with the tools to choose our response when we’re triggered and leading us toward emotional freedom.
