The 9 Steps of Tough Times Therapy in 9 Weeks…
These Evening Retreat webinars are live every week.
If you miss one, there will be recordings available the next day.
STEP 1 (3 APRIL, 7pm UK)
STAYING CALM IN TOUGH TIMES
How we become calm and stay calm, even in tough times, takes a good deal of learning and practice. But this training will help you cope with these times, then be calmer too once we’re the other side of this.
STEP 2 (10 APRIL, 7pm UK)
INCREASING CONNECTION, EVEN WHEN ISOLATED
How we connect with our own feelings is then directly related to how we connect with others – reaching out and creating community that last beyond the tough times.
STEP 3 (17 APRIL, 7pm UK)
DEALING WITH FEAR (WITHOUT RUNNING AWAY)
Fear is natural. And in such tough times, there are genuine threats: to our own health and that of relatives, and other threats such as financial. You’ll learn how to deal with fear, without running away.
STEP 4 (24 APRIL, 7pm UK)
WHAT GETS TRIGGERED AND HOW TO DEAL WITH IT
Such tough times wash away our habitual coping mechanisms. Everything is more raw and edgy. And we’re likely to be triggered in a variety of ways. Here’s how to face that triggering and deal with it.
STEP 5 (Thursday 30th April, 7pm UK)
QIGONG & CONTINUUM BREATHING
A breather from the weekly routine… And a chance to go deeper into our regular practices of John’s Qigong (the deeply relaxing and healing Chinese energy art) and Gaia’s Continuum Breathing (at a minimum this will help you sleep, big-time).
STEP 6 (Thursday 7th May, 7pm UK)
SELF-KINDNESS IN TIMES OF MASS CRISIS
It’s hard to be kind on ourselves in the best of times. We tend to be hardest on ourselves. So under such pressure in these tough times, self-kindness becomes key and a skill (and habit) that will last you a lifetime.
STEP 7 (Wednesday 13th May, 7pm UK)
FEELING MY FEELINGS WITHOUT GETTING OVERWHELMED
These tough times bring up so much for us – fear, worry, frustration, maybe anger. It’s important to feel our feelings, and face them, but without overwhelming our nervous systems.
STEP 8 (Wednesday 20th MAY, 7pm UK)
THIS IS WHAT IT IS, AND HOW SEEING THAT CAN HELP
Tough Times Therapy is a Tough Times Training. No matter how tough it is, if you can find some acceptance of the situation, seeing that it is what it is, then this will both help through the tough times, and keep you wise when it all improves.
STEP 9 (Monday 25th MAY, 7pm UK)
FEELING THE BLISS, EVEN IN THIS
Even in tough times, there is plenty to be grateful for, plenty of beauty. But there is also bliss to find and to feel. It doesn’t exclude the pain and difficulty, it sits with it, and sometimes beneath it. And, if you can feel it during this? Well, imagine how it will be after…
“What I’m struggling with…”
“I think what I’m struggling with now is anxiety. I’m trying to be calm and mindful, pay attention to be informed but stop when I feel like I’m getting sucked in to endless scrolling.” P.W., Canada
