$515 per couple5 couples only! We live our lives in relationships with other human beings. We all have our own distinct perspectives, desires, and backgrounds, which from time to time inevitably come into conflict with one another.This is not something we can avoid. It is not something we should even *try* to avoid!Instead, when we embrace conflict as a gateway to profound breakthrough - as a call to slow down, take a deep breath, and get curious - we can yield the most powerfully creative solutions TOGETHER, rather than staying stubborn, staying stuck, staying quiet, or falling apart.
-It starts with self-soothing, and with building resiliency.
-It starts with self-confidence, and with compassion.
-It starts with building mutual respect and trust, in a relationship between equals.
-It starts by swallowing your pride, finding self-compassion for your fears, and reaching with curiosity and love across the gaps between us.
All of these gestures are theoretical until you put them to PRACTICE. And while getting new ideas, and using different language can be useful, all of the emotions that arise get processed through the BODY; relationships exist as felt experience.Because of this, Rissa Wray and Tasha Harmon are teaming up to bring a 2-day weekend workshop to Portland that addresses the body, the mind, and our interrelated existence this Labor Day Weekend at the Everett House Healing Center.Coming together as a group to learn is one of the most powerful experiences we can have... The focus isn't just on us, we get to grow and learn new skills, and we remember we are not alone.Existing in relationship means having sometimes conflicting desires, aspirations, and perspectives. Embracing this fact and changing your perspective to see conflict as a call to creativity is one of the single most profound shifts you can have. All of a sudden, you turn pain and turmoil into strength, bravery, and resilience - together. Join us as we explore ways to lean into these possibilities.Tasha Harmon is a facilitator, trainer and coach for individuals and relationships of all shapes and sizes. Her work is about creating containers where discovery and growth can happen. She is always focused on building the capacity of the person or people she's working with to do the work they want to do. Her approach is holistic and invites the wisdom of the whole person, including the body, to lead the process of discovering what each of us needs to thrive, as individuals and in relationships and groups. And while the work is sometimes slow and done in small steps, it is always focused on transformation, not on incremental change.Rissa Wray is a Thai massage practitioner and yoga teacher from St. Petersburg, FL. She has been practicing and teaching Thai massage since her first trip to Thailand in 2012 - and yoga since 2014. To date, she's worked with hundreds of couples and thousands of individuals using Thai massage and yoga as the mediums to help each person heal themselves and their relationships. She believes trauma must be processed and released through the body; so, whether you're experiencing a group or individual session, your body has the opportunity to transform and find balance and the release you need to move forward healthier and more integrated.
