SOLD OUT! There will be no door sales.
In this talk I will be exploring the experiences related to feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, breakdown, regression, annihilation and the experience of dying, suicidal feelings, shame and dissociation. I will be linking these, at root, to the experience of extreme threat and the primitive mammalian collapse response. I will be looking in particular to the threat occurring in the first years of life, which becomes embedded and embodied in our personalities.
