DROP IN: Journey Beyond Anxiety Feb 16th Session: Exploring the Emergent Unknown with guest, David Raithby

What if your anxiety, stress or fear wasn’t an obstacle or a burden on the path of life?  What if it was an invitation to embark on a journey beyond your wildest dreams?

Join us and journey into what lies ahead, beyond anxiety, stress and fear into engaging, expressing and expanding possibilities for more vibrant living.


Exploring the Emergent Unknown with David Raithby - Extended Session

This Journey Beyond Anxiety session is the culmination of a series that began in December last year, during which we explored many ways to manage anxiety, stress and fear and offered experiences and tools to help move from the contraction of anxiety into the expansion of your life force energy. Fulfilled, vibrant and passionate living is not anxiety-free; it requires that we engage moment to moment, expand our awareness and choices and express our full depth and range. 

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware. - Martin Buber

Living with the unknown, as many of us have done during these uncertain times, may increase our fear and anxiety but also holds emergent possibilities for greater aliveness, innovation, creativity and personal contact.

Join us for an exploration of potentials that arise out of the unknown.  During this session, you will experience the primary emergent processes of letting go, stopping, opening and connecting, and you may also find yourself beginning a practice that will have long lasting benefits throughout your personal and working life.

Exploring the Emergent Unknown is being offered as an adventure into possibilities to:

  • Open yourself and find meaning in experiencing the mystery of the unknown and unexpected
  • Spark your energy
  • Challenge yourself to move beyond your comfort zone
  • Let go of set ways of thinking and believing
  • Get in touch with the emerging 'now'
  • Become more embodied (present, grounded, energized, relaxed)
  • Build connection with yourself and others

This session will include:

  • information on emergence and transformation
  • guided self-reflection through the four elements 
  • deep conscious breathing 
  • dialogue in smaller groups
  • Q&A

You will encounter other ‘travelers’ on this journey into the unknown.  Some may have been along for the journey since December, some will be new arrivals.  You can expect to relax, learn a little, have some fun, talk with others and see what emerges!

As many travelers do, we encourage you to journal your experiences and keep track of what you are learning and potentially unlearning!

Are you ready to embark?

This session is for you if you:

  • are open to a more expansive approach to your anxiety, stress and fear
  • are willing to embrace uncertainty and step into the beyond and unknown
  • are willing to expand your comfort zone
  • keep an open mind and heart
  • will participate as fully as you are able

You may find participation more challenging if you are: stuck in your point of view; wanting change without taking action; and/or are in crisis (these sessions are not meant to be counseling).
