Choice is so much more than saying “yes” or “no.” What is the full range of options at any given moment? What do you do when you don’t know what to do? Do you go along with the crowd? Or do you feel into what is right for you, and make your own choice?
If you were to hit a “reset” button on your life, what would you choose now? Are there people you need to heal relationships with? Are there important things left unfinished in any aspect of your life?
HAI emphasizes choice from the very first session of the first workshop. In Loving Your Choices we take it much further. How were you conditioned to be the gender you were raised to be? Were there essential parts of yourself that you let go of in order to be accepted, perhaps even to survive? Are there experiences or ways of being you would like to try on, but never have?
As we begin to stand more fully in ourselves, we can choose our own desires out of a clear commitment to ourselves. We stop and wonder “what is it I truly want?” We take stands we had not taken before as well as opening a door to looking at what influences of culture, parenting, school, friends and family have shaped why we do what we do.
There is an opening of understanding about how at choice we truly are when we pay attention. We begin to ask ourselves, “Why do I do what I do? Do I choose or does my programming choose?” We use the edginess of our sexuality to explore the universality of choice. The inherent pulse of our body’s longings opens the way to attuning to our body’s wisdom, informing our moment-by-moment, day-by-day decision making.
This workshop provides you with the opportunity to see clearly the underlying causes of your behaviors. You’ll examine your programmed responses to see that your choices are often restricted by your past. You can expect to:
- Learn about adapted behavior, and liberate yourself from “group think”
- Recognize gender roles and free yourself from unnecessary restrictions
- Gain a much deeper understanding of why you do what you do
Once the looking within begins the doors swing wide open.
