Presentation: Tapping Into Feeling Better

Feeling betterEmotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) / Tapping is a simple self help process that’s easy to learn and easy to use.

We all find ourselves in stressful situations where we would like to feel more resourceful.

Perhaps we want to be calmer instead of anxious, confident instead of uncertain, excited instead of intimidated.

In this presentation Andy Hunt AAMET Master EFT Trainer will introduce you to tapping and show you how to use a simple two stage process to feel better about situations we find stressful.

All you need are your fingertips, a stressful situation and a desire to be able to change how you feel in that situation.

No previous experience of EFT required.

Presentation: Small Steps to Big Change

Small StepsWhen we think of things that we want to change, we can get hung up with the final outcome which can be a good thing for some people, if they can remain motivated and move towards their outcome.

For some people the change from where they are now to where they want to be can seem so enormous, that the possibility of achieving the outcome can be too daunting to imagine and can be why they will avoid change or give up trying.

By breaking down the journey into small steps and removing obstacles whilst remaining motivated the outcome can be achieved.

During this session techniques will be used from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) through demonstration and practice to find a way to remove blocks which are preventing you from making change and help you move towards your outcomes and goals.

No previous experience is necessary as full explanations and demonstration will be carried out

Presentation: Laughter Yoga And Dabke Dance

Laughter Yoga And Dabke DanceKeith Adams who has always brought Laughter Yoga to Change Camp is unable to attend the Spring 2018 Change Camp and has handed over the reins for this Change Camp session to Karen Mills and Tahira Aslam who will present Laughter Yoga, combined with Dabke Dance.

Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise using movement and laughter as well as the breathing of yoga. Laughing for no reason energises the mind and body based on the idea that fake laughter can lead to real laughter and yet the brain does not know the difference between them. Practiced regularly, laughter can have health and social benefits.

Learn to dance dabke while you are in the session too. Dabke is a middle eastern dance, often danced in a line or a circle, with people holding hands. It is usually enjoyed at weddings and other festive occasions. Dancing is great for co-ordinating the mind-body, and dancing dabke is a fun, socially shared experience, which has proven to be good for the mind and body, reducing both stress and tension and improving happiness levels at the
same time.

What are you celebrating today?

The session will consist of Laughter Yoga followed by Dabke Dance and then relaxation meditation.

No previous experience of either Laughter Yoga or Dabke Dance is required and the session is open to all and the aim of the session is to have fun

Presentation: Spring Into Life With The Retreat People

Spring Into LifeThe first green shoots of Spring are already appearing telling us it’s time to spring back into life with The Retreat People at Change Camp 2018.

Once again, The Retreat People would love you to join us for a mini Relaxation Retreat taster session at the end of your inspiring Spring Change Camp day.

It’s a real opportunity for renewal and fresh starts, or at least a time to breathe fresh life into old projects, attitudes & our approach to life.

As our lives get busier and the demands of work, business & family mean we can spend less & less time looking after ourselves, something often gives & that something is frequently your own well-being & peace of mind!

In our workshop we will use guided relaxation, mindfulness & meditation techniques drawn from our expertise utilising Hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP, Performance Coaching & maybe even a little bit of Laughter Yoga to help people of all ages to manage unwanted stress.

You’ll return home more able to retain the learning, sense of community & energy of Change Camp & of course relaxed & re-energised ready to embrace the good things in life as we awaken to fully embrace the joys of Spring.

To Enjoy Your Session Please Bring:

  • Comfortable clothing you feel relaxed in
  • Lightweight cosy blanket or cover – some people like to lie on floor although chairs will also be available
  • Your Teddy Bear & Slippers as ever are optional!
  • Just bring your desire to relax, chill out & simply enjoy yourself.

Once again we look forward to welcoming friends old & new to our workshop so we can relax & revive big style.

Presentation: Do You Eat Your Emotions?

Emotional EatingA Rough Guide to Emotional Eating and what we can do about it

Emotional Eating is quite simply, eating to supress or soothe negative emotions we experience.

Emotional Eating is a very common problem but only some of us that are aware that we do it and even fewer know what to do about it.

If you have trouble losing weight, put weight straight back on after dieting, crave certain foods and experience sudden hunger, you may be an emotional eater.

This presentation will be an overview about what emotional eating is, how we can identify it in ourselves and what strategies we can use to reduce it.

Presentation: The Listening Circle

To really listen to another human being is an art.

An art that we can all learn.

Whatever is on your mind or in your heart, the circle wants to hear it.

We are built to take in each other’s experiences, to bear witness to one another. To learn, grow and deepen our connections with self and others, as a result.

My name is Tahira Aslam and I am a great advocate for deep listening in community, in circle.

I believe in the power of respectful and reflective listening, to connect more deeply with ourselves, to give our hearts a voice, to give the inner voice an opportunity to be heard and expressed out loud, to unearth our own answers, to empower us as individuals, through the process of connecting more deeply with others.

“Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable.” David W.Augsburger.

This is a space for you, to share anything you wish. Perhaps reflect on the day you have experienced so far, perhaps how you feel about being heard and witnessed by a group of people, perhaps a creative idea wishes to be shared. The space is an open one, for you to express whatever wishes to be said in the moment.

To support a safe and well-held container for listening, participants are asked: to be gentle with yourself and others, to offer quiet and respectful listening when another is speaking and sharing their wisdom, to take responsibility for your needs and wishes and to speak honestly.

All that is shared in the circle remains in the circle, when it comes to a close. Outside of circle, I will not gossip about you.

Whatever profession you choose to enter, or whatever life path you take, the need for respectful and reflective listening is to be found everywhere.

Presentation: A Guided Imagery Of Psychosynthesis

Guided ImageryAt this workshop Harry will give a One Minute introduction to Psychosynthesis.

You will then go on one of Roberto Assagioli journeys guided by Harry followed by an explanation of the symbolic elements of your own journey.

You will then go on another journey created by Harry for this workshop, followed by an exploration of what is actually happening and how you can use it to your benefit.

As usual expect to have great fun and a unique learning experience.

Presentation: Drawing Out The Child In You

Child drawingThis presentation is all about exploring your personality through simple drawing and writing exercises.

Using Star-Wave Drawing, a simple technique developed by an educational psychologist and family therapist you can draw out the child in you and explore what you learn through the lens of Transactional Analysis (a social psychology exploring relationship interactions).

By the end of the session you will know more about why daily or long term relationships work the way they do.

If you are interested in learning more about yourself and your relationships then all you will need to do is bring along your favourite pen.

No artistic ability is required.

Presentation: Introduction to Mindset Skills

MindsetLearn the principles behind mindset skills and some of the activities and techniques we can apply in simple content-free ways to remove blocks, anxieties and begin to develop more positivity and success.
