This is the current list of presentations that are occurring at the Autumn 2011 ChangeCamp on October 29th, 2011

Presentation: Learn About The Havening Techniques®

Learn about the Havening Techniques® with one of the first certified practitioners and trainers in the world, Carol Robertson PhD.

Gain an understanding of how these gentle and seemingly simple processes work biologically, via our electrical and chemical systems. And find out how the change in our neurology alters our emotional and physical responses and facilitates our ability to relax, sleep or learn.

Take the opportunity to experiment with Havening Touch® and find out more about some of the many techniques.

Ever increasing numbers of professionals are becoming certified Havening Techniques Practitioners. These include therapists, mental health practitioners, specialists in trauma recovery, bodyworkers, teachers, first-responders, self-development facilitators, hypnotherapists, TFT and EFT practitioners, NLP practitioners, reiki practitioners, acupuncturists, and sports and performance coaches.

Through the work of these practitioners we are learning that there are many uses for the techniques, and huge potential. Practitioners are engaging with people from birth to end of life; helping people suffering with symptoms from traumatisation such as PTSD; rage; chronic pain; anxiety; loss; phobias; and suicidal ideation.

They are empowering those who are carers, parents, or teachers, and helping people improve sports performance or with challenges such as presenting, acting and creating art. They are supporting people on autistic spectrum with sensory issues; or assisting people, families, businesses or groups seeking improvement, wanting to be effective, eat healthily and be fit. The system itself offers enormous creativity to practitioners and individuals can learn to use Havening themselves, which is massively empowering.

Quotes from individuals (age 8 to 90 years) describe their experience of Havening using words such as ‘gentle’, ‘easy-to-do’, ‘enabling’, ‘kind’, ‘lovely’, ‘amazing’, ‘that was fast’, ‘wow it really worked’, ‘makes sense’, ‘was comfortable’, ‘not what I expected therapy to be like’, ‘liked it best’, ‘took me to a safe place’ and ‘love that Havening is ours to use’.

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.
