Have you ever promised yourself that you will stop doing something only to repeat it that same day? Have you ever committed to a new behavior only to forget that commitment hours later? Your nervous system is equipped with automatic habitual functions and more conscious, adaptable functions. While ingrained habits are energy efficient, some of them do not yield the results we desire. In fact, we may find ourselves repeatedly engaging in ineffective behavior simply because it is automatic and comfortable. In this workshop, we will look at a simple and powerful practice for honest and self-compassionate reflection that allows us to access the wisdom and confidence we need in real time to be healthy, purposeful and effective.
