We find ourselves in this "age of anxiety" and contrary to popular belief, anxiety itself is not a problem, anxiety serves a purpose in our lives. The problem for many of us, is the relationship we have with anxiety. For many of us, our anxiety seems to be endlessly provoked by our day-to-day experience. Whether it be social media, technology, expectations of others, economic uncertainty, or the pandemic - we let these experiences consume us. We find our anxiety consuming our attention and negatively impacting our experience, relationships, and health. The good news is we have the ability to change our relationship with anxiety to reduce its negative impacts in our lives.
This workshop will help you to:
- Understand the nature of anxiety and its purpose
- Get clarity on the difference between fear and anxiety
- Learn to recognize the major internal and external sources of anxiety in their lives
- Reflect on the detrimental impact of their current relationship with anxiety
- Learn a process to change their relationship with anxiety
- Engage in a experiential exercise that employs this process
This one hour workshop will be led by Dr. Matthew Eriksen with co-founder Ariel Galipeau. The workshop will be held Wednesday April 28th at noon and registration includes access to our learning platform where we’ll provide additional self-reflective exercises and access to our community. Details regarding zoom meetings will be provided upon registration.
