I am very excited to tell you about a summer version of a course designed specifically to heal fear. Let me introduce myself and my course "From Fear to Freedom Summer 2019", designed to give you the tools to enter the fall with more knowledge, confidence and ease.
A 5 Week Mindfulness Course Designed to Help You Overcome Anxiety
Start this fall more relaxed, focussed and ready.
Join me in a 5 week journey over the summer as we learn to overcome fear together. Through video classes, guided mindfulness practices as well as direct teaching and support from me.
You will learn:
* The real reason why fear persists
* How to overcome negative thinking
* How to heal anxiety without complicated techniques
* Simple tools to finally move towards freedom.
* How to use your mind and body to overcome fear
* No experience with mindfulness is necessary: You can do this!
Madeleine Eames is a psychotherapist, a yoga and mindfulness teacher who has a passion for bringing mindfulness and breathing practices into counselling and a vision for a world with less fear and pain and more personal freedom. She has been teaching and writing about mental health and mindfulness for over 20 years. You can learn more and stay in touch with her and her most recent publications @ www.mindfullivingnow.com.
You will receive a weekly video class on Mondays beginning July 29th to watch at your leisure with valuable information about the week's topic on anxiety. Each week builds on the previous one and you can go back and watch as many times as you like.
Mindfulness only works if you practice it. From Tuesday to Friday of each week you will receive a 10-15 minute guided audio practice to integrate the lesson and learning. These practices are available to go back and repeat anytime.
Starting the week of July 29th, every Wednesday there is a group coaching class in our private Facebook group where I teach more about different aspects of anxiety and you have a chance to ask questions and get support. If you can't make it, it will be uploaded to the group to watch later.
"“I can’t say enough good things about Madeleine Eames’ weekly Mindfulness class. Madeleine is a profoundly gifted and compassionate teacher. I know I speak for many others when I say that the mindfulness lessons she shared with us made each of our lives brighter, more tolerable, and I’ve heard it said more than once by participants that they wish they’d known the simple technique of being mindful years earlier.” "
"I loved the video lessons, the journaling and the meditations prior to journaling made the journaling much richer for me. Your questions were great and elicited a great amount of insight for me. I think no matter where a person is at, they will get something from your course at any level of readiness...it is gentle and welcoming in its spirit(like you) and I could go back through it and learn again and again🙏💞"
Each week begins with a video class that explores one aspect of anxiety.
The following four days you will get 4 guided audio mindfulness meditation to start practicing this aspect right away.
On the Wednesday of each week I will be live in the private Fear to Facebook group to teach you more about fear and how to overcome it, give extra tips and also to answer any questions that have risen so far.
You can take the weekends off or you can go back and repeat some of the practices.
I will be available in our private Fear to Freedom Facebook group to share, ask questions and get support during the course. I might even add a yoga pose or two to practice in there.
In the first week we will look at how you become trapped in your anxiety, how it shows up, and how to practice mindfulness to overcome it and the difference between anxiety and fear.
You will learn the healing power of the breath to calm your revved up nervous system and specific ways to calm your anxious mind and body as you turn towards discomfort. We will discuss 3 different breathing disorders. You will learn why the breath is so powerful and effective and how to use it to approach anxiety to relax the body and mind.
In this week we focus directly on the automatic negative thoughts that are fueling anxiety. You will learn to clarify and examine the stories that cause your fear, let go of the inner critic and notice your negativity bias and common thinking traps that cause anxiety.
In this module you will learn to identify underlying feelings that may arise, particularly when we start to let go of anxiety. You will learn how to deal with and process difficult emotions whether it is anger, jealousy or worry. You will learn how to detach and slowly take away the power of strong emotions and learn what causes them.
In week five we put it all together in a plan for you to integrate mindfulness into your daily life to live with more ease, greater calm, connection and less stress. We will practice the power of compassion as an antidote to fear and loving kindness as an antidote to the isolation and judgement that arises with anxiety. Remember this is always a practice and never perfect, so keep going!
Throughout my 25+ years of private practice, I have seen too many lives become limited because of unnecessary fear. We all deserve an accessible opportunity to fully live our life with freedom instead of constantly running from fear.
This summer class starts on July 29th, 2019. You will receive your first video and have access to the first week. We will be going through the course together so you get all the support and guidance you need to succeed.
We will move through it together beginning July 29th, but you will have lifetime access to the videos and audios and you can download them, so you can go back to review and practice anytime. I also hope you stay in the Facebook support group to keep the momentum and motivation going.
In total, there are 5 videos and 20 audios. There is one video at the beginning of each week with 4 audio practices that follow. You then have 2 days off to relax or go back and practice. Next week's video and audios get released on the Sunday of each week.
On the Wednesday of each week I will be live on video in the Facebook group to answer questions, fill in the blanks and move you through obstacles.
There are also PDF worksheets to download each week and on various specific days. You can either print them out, refer to them or write in your own journal.
You will have access to join the private Fear to Freedom facebook group where you will be able to ask questions, post your progress or share you experiences with myself and others who are also in the course. You will be able to ask me questions and get answers as we go along or live in our weekly Q & A sessions.
If you are ready to move through anxiety, I am ready to be your guide. You will receive over 10 hours of instruction time as well as 20 audio practices you can go back to anytime. I so look forward to meeting you in class. If you have any questions about the course please email me at [email protected]
Each Wednesday I will be teaching on a topic and you'll be able to ask questions and share struggles and realizations. There are always times of frustration, confusion and times where we feel like giving up in this journey. This support is crucial to your success and understanding of the concepts and practices in this course. All of these sessions will be recorded and posted in our Facebook community to watch at your convenience.
