Flight / Flee Stress Response

A Guide to Being Resourced for Life

March 11, 2020 6:00 PM Pacific

Do you tend to worry? When in conflict, do you find yourself wanting to walk away without saying a word? In relationships, do you tend to run away or want to leave? Maybe you find yourself thinking about the past or future instead of being in your present moment experiences and activities.

As humans, we are hard-wired to respond to danger and though we are no longer being chased by saber-toothed tigers, we often experience fear responses to daily situations that can feel like life or death.

In this online playshop we will explore:

  • The many ways that we experience the Flight/ Flee response.
  • How to move from fear to here with Sumo, a Fear Melters® shift move developed by Kathlyn Hendricks.
  • How to create a habit of presencing stress throughout our days.
