Healthy Differentiation & the Prism of Real World Relating

A 6 WEEK COURSE ON SOMATICS & THE NERVOUS SYSTEM WITH KIMBERLY ANN JOHNSON

Starts March 8th

After two years of varying degrees of isolation, and all of its impacts, we must insist on proximity and togetherness.

We have to find ways to come back to ourselves and each other.

But how? 

When it feels that there is nothing to come back to, no culture to return to, no social fabric that still exists; When it feels that coming together is exhausting and mystifying;

How do we come back home?

We start with our individual nervous systems. We start with understanding what originates within us.

Then we build our capacity and stamina for social engagement.

Next we build our capacity and stamina for conflict. 

We charge ourselves with the resonance of reconciliation, forgiveness, and love within ourselves.

This is not skipping to solution-oriented thinking. This is not spiritual bypassing.

This involves grief, anger, and sorrow. As well as joy, pleasure and faith.

It involves truth.

Many of us have experienced painful and unexpected ruptures during these last two years.

The lid of the pressure cooker tightened and earlier relational and attachment challenges rose to the surface galvanizing some relationships and ending others.

The prism of real world relating requires that we understand differentiation and interconnectedness. We understand when we need to separate, and when and perhaps how we can come together.

Can you hold your position while listening to others?

Are you willing to change your mind?

Do you believe universally that your intuition is correct? Can you find your intuition when you need it?

Are you aware of cues that tell you when you are sliding into habit rather than authentic truth?

Jaguar energy is ferocious, decisive, relaxed and powerful. 

We will never outrun our mammalian nature and needs. 

So we must dedicate ourselves to understanding and committing to return to these mammalian instincts in a culture that is fast convincing us that somehow we can outsmart them. 

We don’t know what the future holds. 

How will this affect our children, and their children? 

Will we choose the earth?

Will we choose each other- even those whose realities we cannot see?

Are we willing to change?

The answer to these questions depend on us.

Who is this Class For?

  • Yoga + breath teachers who need to understand the nervous system and trauma on a deeper level
  • Birthworkers who need tools to help clients shift states according to individual needs
  • Anyone who feels resigned or helpless or afraid and needs an infusion of fresh energy and tools
  • Mothers, with no space or privacy, seeking to be the regulating center of their homes and understand how to help their children metabolize this neverending time
  • Humans who need and want community and support
  • Activists who are losing stamina

In this class, you will learn:

  • Why it’s imperative to play the long game and HOW to do that
  • Learn how to accurately read the signals your body is giving you and know what direction to move to from there
  • Why certain forms of movement, yoga and breathwork might work for some people, but not for you
  • How to stop projecting your anxiety outwards and learn to metabolize it, so you can communicate from your deepest truth, and be heard
  • How to metabolize the waves of emotions and sensations so that you feel you are setting the tone rather than being tossed around by others.
  • How an ability to differentiate is crucial to nervous system health, and a tolerance for difference is a part of that
  • Why it doesn’t work to “heal ourselves first” and then move back into relationship (whether that’s romantic, friendship or familial relationship)
  • How to direct our energy and attention where it really matters, and when we don’t, how to reclaim it
  • How to create capacity and stamina for conflict

How is this course different than other Jaguar course offerings?

The theme of this Jaguar is RELATING: dating, parenting, family, friendship, professional and romance.

FAQ

No problem at all. We’ve had thousands of women take this course, and very few were able to come to every live webinar (and some couldn’t attend any live, because of work and other commitments). The videos in this course are meant to be watched sometime during the week—you’ll get a replay of each video within 24 hours of the live call. You’ll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week. 

The classes will be 75-90 minutes long, and we’ll give you some experiential exercises and meditations to incorporate into your daily life during the week. All-in-all you’ll be spending about two hours on course material per week (plus whatever you fold into your daily interactions).
