One of the most common unnamed conditions in humans is Alarmed Aloneness, especially in western capitalist cultures that value and encourage self-sufficiency and hyper-individualism. For many people, this experience begins in childhood and, because what is unnamed for our bodies persists until it is known and resonated with, loneliness can continue for decades.
During the restricted living conditions of the 2020 pandemic in North America, Alarmed Aloneness has become even more widespread, and includes both the hunger for emotional connection and the “skin hunger” for touch and body warmth. The more we learn about our bodies and our brains as we deal with loneliness, the more we know about how to take care of ourselves with warmth and compassion. In this 90 minute session, we’ll learn, accompany ourselves and take away resources for self-warmth.
