Facing your Fears - Fight, Flight or Conquer!  

Fear is a powerful and primal emotion that was critical for our ancestors’ survival. However, these memories and fears, from previous and this lifetime, now exist more to hold us back from moving forward into creating our destiny, than to keep us safe. Understanding the difference between our natural responses of fight or flight when faced with difficult situations or unbearable emotions is key to knowing how to best respond. We can learn to do this once again. Join Barbara & Flavia in this workshop to find out where your fears stem from and take part in an arrow breaking ceremony – an ancient form of fear and phobia removal to release your anxieties and give birth to freedom. Tools needed; Bring a picture of what your fear is or represents e.g. spider, loneliness, failure etc.
