Wednesday, August 8th -- Briefcase & Vibes : Stress Reduction And Work/Life Balance For The Modern Man
with Elliot Aronow
Has work become something you have to do to sustain your lifestyle, rather than something you want to do to?
Are you feeling burnt out, uninspired and "not good enough" when it comes to your professional pursuits?
Do you feel trapped by the constant pressures to achieve, conquer, win and "kill it"?
This workshop was created especially for men who are looking to find a more sustainable and fulfilling balance between their work and play.
It will also teach you actionable techniques for managing and decreasing your stress, in both personal and professional settings.
As dudes, we are often taught to "silently suffer" and "be strong" and this workshop presents an opportunity to go beyond our gender roles and contact a more expressive part of ourselves.
In this workshop we will spend some meditating together and discussing our creative pursuits/goals. After we are nice and relaxed, I will give a short talk where I will share my ideas on how you can feel safer, happier and more confident in your professional life. I will also offer my suggestions on how to create safe boundaries between your work and the rest of your life.
Everyone wants to feel happier and less stressed out, right?
After my talk, it's all about having an open and free exchange between all members of the group. You don't have to share anything, but from my experiences this is always the most valuable and therapeutic part of the workshop.
No experience in meditation/inner work/stress reduction is necessary! This class is purposefully designed to be accessible to all.
