An Introduction to RAIN with Kim Tull-Esterbrook
Sep 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm| $40
In this 2 day workshop, we will explore the practice of RAIN. RAIN Is a useful Acronym to help remember the steps of the practice:
R ecognize what is happening;
A llow the experience to be there, just as it is;
I nvestigate with interest and care;
N urture with self-compassion.
RAIN is an insightful self-inquiry practice that you can bring into your daily life to help you discover the deep patterns of what triggers strong emotional reactions. It is a process of Investigating what you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally and loosening the mind’s stories around those experiences. This practice helps to create the space for you to be with things as they are, to deepen your understanding of what underlies, your fears, anger, and sadness. It can also grant you the freedom to look at the situation differently and choose a response other than what may be dictated by your story. And all the while, helping to cultivate a real sense of understanding and compassion toward your own vulnerability.
Date & Time: Tuesdays, September 17th and 24th, 2019 at 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
