Regulate your Nervous System

Presenter: Tabith Kolodziej

Have you ever wanted to learn how to regulate your own nervous system? Do you desire to bring more awareness and attention to your own nervous system for when you are becoming dysregulated? When you learn to become aware of your own triggers and early signs of dysregulation it can allow you to bring more harmony and balance back into your mind, body, and spirit. Nervous System Regulation is the ability to move flexibly between different states of arousal in response to stressors. This ability to be flexible and adapt to the circumstances gives us a sense of agency; it makes us feel confident and secure because we can understand and navigate the world in the ways we choose. When our nervous system is regulated, being in our bodies fosters a sense of safety. Nervous System Dysregulation translates into a sense of powerlessness. We feel we have no control over how we respond to triggers, and we remain stuck in that response even after the trigger is removed. When our nervous system is chronically dysregulated, our bodies develop various symptoms and conditions. Being in our body may feel painful, uncomfortable, or even terrifying. Trauma, burnout, illness, and chronic pain all stem from an overwhelmed nervous system. In our journey together, you will learn the 2 functions of the autonomic nervous system and their primary roles. You will not only learn to recognize when you're dysregulated but you will learn tools on how to instantly shift and alter your state of emotions from negative to positive to cultivate more peace and safety in your body. This is especially powerful for anyone who struggles with anxiety, stress, fear, worry, doubt etc. Together we will also embark on a journey where we will use creative self-expression through movement and dance that can help to release trapped emotions that have become lodged in the body. Your body wants to be heard, and emotions are meant to be felt. When you don’t listen and neglect feeling, you open yourself up to illness and disease. By learning to listen to our body, feel what it is experiencing, and understand how to release emotions trapped, you allow yourself to heal and become more regulated and synchronized with the universal healing. 

Bring a journal and pen.

Crystal Grids Workshop

Presenter: Sam Kirouac

Sam Kirouac Soul Healing

Crystal grids are a powerful tool to support you in manifesting your goals, intentions and desires. A crystal grid is an intentional arrangement of crystals in a specific layout, created for a specific intention. It combines the energy of the crystals with Sacred Geometry. By placing your stones in a geometric arrangement, the crystal energy is enhanced exponentially. Your intention is being amplified through the stones and then sent out to the Universe in a clear and direct way. Whatever your goal may be, you can create a powerful combination of crystals into a grid to hold your intention and manifest it. In this fun and interactive workshop you will learn the basics of crystals grids, why they are a powerful tool to have in your toolkit and also how to create a grid for any of your intentions. Crystal grids can support you in all areas of your life. They can help with achieving goals, health, memory and focus, relationships, career, spiritual connection, psychic abilities and for calling in abundance.

During this workshop you will also create your very own grid to take home with you. All crystals and grid supplies are included.
