I am delighted to be joining forces with the inspirational teacher Jo Hamilton for our third Natural Stress Release workshop, this time in Exmouth, in the lovely sunny, spacious studio at the Cranford Club.
This 3 hour workshop will start with a stress-relieving, preparatory yoga class led by me Gillie Sutherland, focused on releasing psoas muscle and opening the body ready to receive the wonderful healing benefits of TRE, led by Certified TRE Practitioner, Jo Hamilton.
When: Saturday 3rd December 2016 1-4pm
Where: The Dance Studio, Cranford Sports Club, 42 Salterton Road, Exmouth
Cost: £35 per person.
I’ll let Jo explain herself what TRE is:
“Please think of yourself as a computer for a moment. When our computer goes wrong, we don’t always have the solution, often there can be a collection of things that led to its slowing down. Any number of glitches throw a spanner in its machinery. Sometimes, what is needed is a reboot or I am reliably informed in computer speak, a defrag!
This involves clearing old programmes stuff that’s redundant that no longer has a value or purpose, as this slows the function of our computer down. Once we defrag or reboot we return our computer to its factory settings, and we have a healthy functioning easy to use computer again.
TRE Trauma Release Exercises are a defrag and reboot for both our emotional and physiological hard drive. Just like a computer, some of life’s downloads, such as the stressful traumatic events, affects our system a bit like a computer virus. They’re not supposed to be saved. They need to be cleared from our system in order that we can function in a healthy balanced way. We need to save only the information we need and delete the stuff we don’t.
In the animal kingdom mammals have an instinctive reboot, which is activated automatically following any stressful or traumatic event. Following the event they instinctively release the tension through tremoring and shaking. You may have seen on a wildlife programme, once a gazelle has escaped from becoming a lion’s dinner and is out of danger, it will tremble and shake releasing the trauma energy. It will then happily get on with grazing as if life couldn’t be more tranquil.
It can do this because it has released/shaken off the fact that five minutes earlier it was nearly someone else’s lunch! We humans are also genetically encoded to do the same, but through our social evolution and the development of our brain’s prefrontal cortex we have misinterpreted shaking as a sign of trauma rather than a remedy and process of recovery from trauma.
TRE allows us to untie our bodies from our past experiences.”
Watch for yourself how TRE has helped this Army veteran, as well as thousands of others.
