Managing Stress for Performers: A Process Workshop with Douglas Rugh
DATE/TIME: July 19/5:00 - 6:30 pm
LOCATION: AC Office
MAXIMUM # OF PARTICIPANTS: 10
WHAT IS IT?
This workshop gives people a way of looking at stress that starts with the premise that they have learned to protect themselves by distancing themselves from their intentions and feelings, and this type of distancing becomes a habit which results in: fatigue, meaningless, empty relationships, discord, blame, and an emphasis on outcomes. The way to reconnect has to do with self-exploration and self-recognition. The topics addressed include: Effects of Cumulative Stress, Objectification, Subjectification, Genuine Presence
HOW WILL IT WORK?
The workshop will begin by summarizing how people transform challenges into stress. The role that assumptions and habits play and what it means to interrupt that cycle. Then we will share experiences associated with the emotions and thoughts around stress. This type of work lead to better ways for individuals to manage their own performance anxiety and cumulative stress.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a clear understanding of what they can do to release tension and maintain a great level of genuine presence.
