The weekly TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) ‘drop in’ group is restarting on Tuesday 24th January. This group is open to all people who have some experience of TRE®.
WEEKLY TRE® ‘DROP IN’ GROUP EVERY TUESDAY EVENING IN CLAREMONT
We are all affected by stress – it is part of life.
Designed by David Berceli, TRE® is a simple technique that helps your body release stress or tension that has accumulated from day-to-day life experiences, immediate or ongoing stressful situations, and traumatic life events. A set of simple exercises invokes a mild tremor which helps bring the nervous system back to a state of calm and balance. Once learned TRE® is a gentle and effective self-healing tool.
Some of the reported benefits of TRE® include:
Greater sense of calm and inner peace
Less anxiety and worry
Improved sleep quality
Reduced symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Increased emotional resilience
Relief from chronic medical conditions
Release of muscular tension from exercise and sport
Increased mobility and flexibility
Thriving in times of safety
Increased spiritual connection
Date: Every Tuesday
Cost: R100 per session
Time: 7.00pm to 8.15pm
Please phone or email to make your booking before you come as spaces are limited.
“Our culture treats grief like a problem to be solved or an illness to be healed. We’ve done everything we can to avoid, ignore, or transform grief. So that now, when you’re faced with tragedy, you usually find that you’re no longer surrounded by people — you’re surrounded by platitudes.” Tim Lawrence
So what can we offer instead?”
This article was shared on Facebook by a good friend of mine. A friend who knows how to “be there with” people who are grieving. To her and my other friends who know how to “be with” – a big heartfelt thank you for many years ago!
“When we become more compassionate witnesses to people’s challenges and traumas, we not only open ourselves up to better understanding of others and healthier relationships with them, but we also set ourselves up to receive that same compassion and understanding for, and relationship with, ourselves; and we then contribute to the growth of a society that makes validating and embracing our genuine experiences and feelings the new norm.” – David Bedrick
In this article on shame David Bedrick writes about the Shaming Witness – a really good read and sadly also very true for many people.
