This 5-day in-person training is also a Unit of the BeeLeaf Advanced Diploma

Staying in relationship with ourselves requires openness to the emotional, physical and mental tides of being human. Anxiety and depression are two labels given to the most painful human experiences. They are  interconnected both experientially and neurologically – and necessary to being and staying alive.

Anxiety and depression are often residual of trauma and nearly always present in addiction and dependency. Attending to these inner messages can transform them into teachers on our individual journey to resilience, compassion and meaningful purpose in our lives.

Over the course you will learn tried and tested approaches to wholistically activate and support recovery from life-compromising depression and anxiety. As we understand more about the human system’s ability to rebalance and self-regulate we are empowered as practitioners to be of even more help to those who seek a better quality of daily life and personal empowerment.
