Connection + Trust Workshop


This workshop is about connecting to others in a way that feels safe and respectful of ourselves.

Trust allows us to know when it is safe to open up and connect, and when it is wiser to walk away or close off. 

Being able to reach out to others while staying centered in our own self brings meaning and vitality to life and relationships. 

You will leave knowing how to connect to others in a way that is authentic and respectful of your own experience of trust and opening up. 

Themes we will cover

  • What is connection? 

  • Your personal connection strategy

  • Connecting to oneself first - learning to dance on our own

  • Connecting to others: Dancing with other people

  • Empathy + holding a space for connection

  • The role of vulnerability in cultivating connection

  • Misusing vulnerability: Floodlighting 

  • Trust - knowing when and how to trust

  • Dealing with rejection

  • The crucial art of walking away

  • Opening up while staying authentic

The workshop lasts 3.5 hours from 13:30 - 17:00 and includes a break + homemade snack.

The information shared is a unique mix of wisdom from: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) / Sensorimotor Psychotherapy / Brené Brown.

We will combine theoretical knowledge with fun, practical exercises where we also work with a felt sense of what is happening in the body.
