In this 3-day series, we’ll briefly explore a handful of neurobiological concepts that help us understand depression, then we’ll do some demonstrations of the YRS processes that work for tending to each of these causes of depression. Then we’ll break into smaller groups to practice the tools together, and then come back to the full group to debrief with questions:
- DAY 1 (MON – JUNE 17, 2019) from 10:30-12 Noon PST: THE JOURNEY INTO AND OUT OF DEPRESSION THROUGH THE CIRCUITS OF EMOTION AND MOTIVATION
We will learn how the circuits of emotion and motivation can become tangled, undifferentiated, in ways that can cause depression, and then we’ll learn and practice (via small group work and demonstrations) how to work with the collapse in the context of the circuitry.
- DAY 2 (WED – JUNE 19, 2019) from 10:30-12 Noon PST: DISARMING AND DISCOVERING THE ALLYSHIP OF THE CRITICAL VOICE
We will learn and practice how to work with unconscious contracts that keep us cycling through our depression patterns, as well as using resonant language to understand and greet the default mode network.
Part of this work is understanding the way in which unconscious contracts are attempts to keep us safe, and when those contracts are broken or unattainable, that itself can send us into the collapse we call ‘depression’, as well as seeing the agreements we may have made with ourselves to limit joy, which is another type of contract that leads to minimizing our life-energy and feeling sad and disconnected from meaning and purpose.
- DAY 3 (THURS – JUNE 20, 2019) from 10:30-12 Noon PST: LIGHTENING THE IMPLICIT LOAD: TIME-TRAVEL INTO OUR PARENT’S LIVES
Through a quick overview of the epigenetics of depression, we will learn and practice time-traveling into the past to give support and resource to the bodies of our parents and other ancestors, healing the stories and patterns that our bodies are carrying through generational trauma.
