Reconditioning Core Wounds, September 30th 4-6:30PM.

Calling on five lovely humans to join me on the afternoon of Saturday September 30th to explore how our attachment style influences the way we seek connection.

Throughout the 2.5 hour event we’ll uncover our primary and secondary attachment styles, before delving into individual core wounds – the layers of story we add to the experiences we have as adults.

The evening will end with yoga nidra – yogic sleep – and energy healing, moving us into our alpha and theta brainwave states so that we’re better able to recondition our relationship to our chosen core wound.

Attachment Theory

Attachment theory – empirically supported by both medical doctors and researchers – derives from the concept that attachment is the primary driver of all our relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Although our attachment patterns typically form in childhood, all subsequent life experiences have the potential to transform or intensify attachment styles.

The four basic attachment styles are:

– Dismissive-Avoidant

– Fearful-Avoidant

– Anxious Attachment

– Secure Attachment

While insecure attachment styles (anxious, dismissive, fearful) aren’t a sign that we are flawed or damaged, they often come with unhealthy habits and deeply-internalised negative beliefs.

Core Wounds

Core wounds are beliefs we acquire through conditioning. Ages 0-8 are our peak conditioning years due to our highly impressionable brainwave states.

Those with insecure attachment styles tend to have more core wounds, where the securely attached’s core wounds are typically less intense, less frequently activated, and situation specific.

The language of our core wounds is simple – ‘I am bad’, ‘I am alone’, ‘I am unsafe’, ‘I am unworthy’. This is because they were often formed before conscious, analytical thinking.

In adulthood, core wounds can present as an inability to regulate our emotions, including:

– Reactivity

– Emotional manipulation

– Controlling behaviour

Attachment coaching can help you to rewrite the stories you tell yourself, to recondition your core wounds.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep, works with the energetic body to induce a state of deep rest. Although you’re awake, a profound stillness and calm takes over the body, and awareness turns inwards.

Yoga nidra influences brainwaves, enabling individuals to effortlessly transition from the waking beta state of conscious thought and logical thinking, to the alpha (between waking and dreaming; hypnagogic), theta (dreaming; sub-conscious), and delta (deep sleep; unconscious) states, all while the practitioner is awake and aware.

Energy Healing

Biodynamic energy healing pulls from biodynamic craniosacral therapy.

In the biodynamic energy approach, practitioner and patient work together to tap into the body’s healing intelligence. The practitioner scans your energetic field to discover blockages, cords and tears, then works with you to activate self-healing.

As we’re exposed to stress and trauma, our ability to manage distress, discomfort and disease can be compromised. Biodynamic energetics restores health and balance in the physical and energetic bodies, and may even delve into ancestral and past life conditioning.

Biodynamic energetic healing empowers you to better understand and heal your own body, become more grounded, set healthier boundaries, and release old stories.

Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Nidra, October 8th 5:45-6:30PM.

Yoga nidra, aka ‘yogic sleep’, is typically practiced lying down (although you’re welcome to remain seated). Yoga nidra uses guided mindfulness techniques to put participants into a deep state of rest. It differs from meditation in that it requires less focus and is generally more permissive and accessible.

Yoga nidra is often recommended for trauma and PTSD relief, and has even been used by the armed forces to help veterans heal psychological wounding. Potential benefits of yoga nidra include:

· Regulating brain waves – dysregulated brain waves are common following a traumatic event. Yoga nidra can encourage participants to move from gamma (heightened awareness) and beta (problem solving) into alpha (relaxed reflection), theta (meditative, creative) and even delta (deep sleep) brain waves.

· Building capacity to stay present – people who’ve experienced trauma may struggle with flashbacks and persistent negative thoughts. Yoga nidra can, slowly and gently, help participants build safety in the present.

· Reducing reactivity – practicing yoga nidra can help trauma survivors reduce the strength of painful, repetitive thoughts and feelings, and the resultant reactivity.

· Empowering trauma survivors’ own healing – you can practice yoga nidra anywhere that feels safe. For some, that may be in a group setting. Others may prefer private sessions or even practicing at home. No special equipment is required.

Contraindications for yoga nidra: while research has shown that yoga nidra can provide relief in conditions such as trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and insomnia, it may not be appropriate if you are susceptible to hallucinations, if you find holding a posture for an extended period triggering, or if you feel unsafe for any reason. If in doubt, consult a medical professional.

I Am Unsafe Core Wound, October 20th 6-7:30PM.

While each insecure attachment style has its own limiting beliefs, there’s one core wound that tends to show up strongly across the board: I Am Unsafe.

For people with anxious preoccupied, dismissive avoidant and fearful avoidant attachment styles, the deeply held belief that they are in some way unsafe can lead to a lack of connection, both to themselves and to others.

Our core wounds show up in our thoughts and language, our actions and behaviour.

I Am Unsafe Thoughts & Language:

I will defend myself
I will fight back
I am afraid
Fight, flight, freeze, fawn reflected in language

I Am Unsafe Actions & Behaviour:

Flight, flight, freeze, fawn
OCD tendencies
Poor boundaries
Panicked behaviours & attitude
Expressing worry often
Discussing & preparing for worst-case
Controlling others’ safety

I was inspired to create this event specifically around the core wound I Am Unsafe after seeing a pattern emerging in my Reconditioning Core Wounds events. The people with the strongest I Am Unsafe core wound tend to be the ones who’ve read the most self-development books and attended the most events in a bid to address their ‘stuff’. However, they are also the most dysregulated.

If you’re working with a deeply dysregulated nervous system – whether you favour fight, flight, freeze or fawn – the lack of safety you feel in your body can sabotage your efforts to recondition your core wounds. You may struggle to work through even the simplest of reconditioning tools because, even though you know intellectually that you’re safe, your body is responding to long-held, subconscious beliefs that you are under immediate threat.

In this I Am Unsafe event we combine a number of grounding practices to begin to create safety in our bodies, all the way down to those subconscious layers where our core wounds are held.

Join me on Friday October 20th 6PM-7:30PM for a 90-minute event to recondition the core wound I Am Unsafe in an embodied way. Practices will include: restorative yoga, energy healing and yoga nidra.

“Natalie… brings an amazing personality to each session, which is a mixture of experience, insight, empathy and an incredible sense of humour! What I particularly love about my yoga practice with her is that it’s never the same and always exactly what I need on that day and I don’t have to explain as she’s constantly looking for cues and adjusts on the spot. How great is that? Thanks Nat! Looking forward to our next session.”
