The Courage to Let GO?
Online Via Zoom
Thurs, Nov 16, 7 - 9 pm ET (US), 4- 6 pm PT US, +14 in AET
Our lives are lived moment to moment. Our days are filled with constant changes. Some changes feel exciting, full of potential. But changes like an unexpected loss can shut us down with heavy cycles of sadness, anger and despair.
Sometimes, we make a conscious decision that making a change would bring us benefits, but it’s hard to get going. Something holds us back. Feelings of doubt, unworthiness and shame can drain the energy we need to move forward.
Whether its accepting the death of a partner, ending an unhealthy relationship, working through the impacts of aging, taking on a spiritual commitment, or facing the facts about an impossible situation:
Moving through change asks us to let go of our old ways of being.
And for this, we need courage.
Letting go (or being forced to let go) of someone or something familiar, precious or comfortable can seem painful and scary. But in truth, to cling to “what was” keeps us perpetually stuck in grief, fear and anger, and generates feelings of hopelessness, doubt and confusion.
- In this 2-hour, interactive workshop you’ll:
lean into an honest look at the negative consequences of our instinctive reactions to painful, scary situations: our natural “fight, flight, freeze or fawn” response
- be introduced to the special human emotion of Courage: what it is, what it isn’t, how to access it, and how it provides fresh perspectives, clear direction, and points the way to unseen new possibilities
- be supported in discovering what you may want to let go of and the potential benefits of doing so
- be provided a roadmap for that process of letting go, including Power Tools like Self- Talk, Expanding Perspectives and Storytelling
Through instruction, discussion, reflection, sharing and small-group breakout, you’ll gain experiences and learnings that you can put into practice, including:
- Reliably calling in Courage when fear arises
- Developing more self-acceptance and sense of personal grace
- Increasing your emotional ability to move more fluidly with and in life
- The power of choice to shift a story line from limitation to possibilities
- The gifts of Fire and Community as antidotes to move through difficult points in your life journey
Be inspired by life’s changes! Let a newfound sense of Courage help you let go and discover a fresh sense of possibility and direction. See the “past” from a higher perspective, with appreciation for how you’ve met life’s challenges—and what you have to offer others as a result.
“How do you live in a way that helps you get through your tough times?
Sacred Fire LifeWays is about how to live a good life. About how you live in the world with a way of living, a way of life, that has you feel that you are a part of the world, part of life, part of each other’s lives.”
Christine Staub, trained as a family physician, saw her practice evolve into a more integrative approach that attended to patients’ mental, emotional, and spiritual levels as well as physical. She closed her practice to focus her time and skills on a broader scale, particularly community building and sharing the importance of ancestral wisdom. She studied Plant Spirit Medicine with the late Eliot Cowan and helped organize and host the Sacred Fire Ancient Wisdom Rising series of events. Later, she wrote and co-edited the Heard Around the Fire newsletter and co-authored her first book, Cosmic Rhythms: A User’s Manual for Humans. As a wife, mother, grandmother and community leader, Christine is motivated by the nuances of heart-centered leadership and has been Dusty’s thought partner for 30 years. She is a Firekeeper in Greensboro, NC.
