Safety, vulnerability and our quest for control
Living Better with Yourself – Course 6
How is your experience of control? How do you live out your vulnerability? If you want to know more yourself in relation to this and become more flexible in how you live them out, then this is the right course for you.
Being safe is crucial for our wellbeing and functioning. Often we revert to control to ensure that we are safe, or we let go entirely and lose any containment for our vulnerability. But there is a way of striking a balance, a way where we can feel safe and in control, while also letting go and being vulnerable. In this course we get to know a bit more the experience of being vulnerable in a safe space, in our bodies and with the others in the group. We also try to give ourselves the experience of a more open way of being, while always respecting our limits.
Come and join us for this online course and explore this topic with others who are on a similar journey to yourself!
This course is one out of a series of online courses aimed at helping you live better with yourself by getting to know yourself better and become more embodied in your personal growth.
The series of courses consists of:
- My body as anchor when dealing with stress
- Balancing out my thoughts and my emotions
- Engaging with my fear and anger
- Shame, guilt and our shadow sides
- Our inner critical voice and ‘should’ statements
- Safety, vulnerability and our quest for control
The series of courses compliments the self-development journaling book entitled “Living Better with Yourself – A Practical Guide to Embodied Growth” written by ourselves. The book contains extra material and many other exercises that you can use to further the experience you’ve had on this course. You can find more information about the book and order a copy here.
The courses are held online using Zoom with a small group of other people who are also on a similar journey to yourself and with whom you have the opportunity to share this moment of growth, while also learning from each other.
You can join any course at any time and in any order. It is, however, recommended that you first join us for the course “My body as anchor when dealing with stress”, as we offer some fundamental tools that can be useful for the other courses. This is why this course is offered twice throughout the duration of the series, in order to make it easier for new people to join on two different dates.
The courses are interactive allowing for sharing of experiences with the other participants. There will be some activities, discussions, as well as some input about the topic. Some of the activities invite you to move so try to ensure that you have some space around you. Also, you might require some material for the exercises (e.g. some sheets of paper or things to draw with), so please, have a look at the materials required prior to starting the course.
The courses are run in English.
Each course lasts 2.5 hours (19:00 – 21:30 CET).
