    Get Out of Your Head + Embrace Your Life Mini-Retreat

    10:00 - 14:00Cabinet 22 - rue Saint-Leger 22 - 1204 Geneva (Old Town)

    unnamed-1

    “Perhaps the biggest tragedy of our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns...We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.” - Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance

    A mini-retreat on a Sunday morning combining yoga + psychology + healthy food in Geneva’s beautiful old town.

    Get out of your head and embrace your life through a mix of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) - a mindfulness-based behavioral approach - wild-hearted yoga + connection with kindred souls over a healthy lunch.

    We will look into questions such as:

    ♥ Why can’t I seem to switch off my mind’s negative chatter despite my best efforts ?

    ♥ Why do I sometimes feel like my own worst enemy ?

    ♥ Why can’t I just seem to be able to enjoy my life instead of doubting, analyzing or worrying all the time?

    ♥ How can I get more out of life instead of feeling like life is just passing me by?

    We will learn how to relate differently to all the doubts, insecurities and worries that never seem to stop in our heads - yet often stop us from living a life of freedom, purpose and aliveness.

    Through yoga, we will focus on getting into our bodies - because it is only when we are fully embodied that we are not just living in our heads - but truly living, truly alive, to what is happening here and now.

    We will share a healthy meal while focusing on body-centered eating - experiencing our food in a completely different way.

    Finally, we will define and connect to our values - our heart’s deepest desire for how we want to live - so we can start building lives we actually want to fully embrace.

    By the end of this mini-retreat, our hope is that you will:

    …have innovative tools to relate to the doubts, worries, self-criticism we tend to take so seriously differently (beyond meditating or mindfulness).

    …no longer allow your mind’s negative chatter to dictate what you do with your life, but start consciously choosing what truly matters instead.

    …have simple practices to live more fully in your body - the only part of you that is always in the here and now.

    …So you can actually start living a more vibrant, fulfilling life where you embrace what truly matters to you and live with freedom, purpose and aliveness.

    In a nutshell:

    + Short guided meditation to start getting into your body.

    + Workshop on relating differently to the mind’s constant negative chatter with Hiba - Psychologist + Coach
