Improv for Anxiety (Workshop only) | Sunday, Jun 9th 2019 | 1:00pm

This is the 3.5 hour introductory workshop for the "Improv for Anxiety" program at SAK. If you would like to take the full program, including the workshop, direct your browser to www.sak.com/anxietyclass. If you're interested in taking the workshop only, read on... Improv For Anxiety is a wellness based workshop from SAK to help people who suffer from anxiety learn to live richer, fuller and more meaningful lives. Whether it's social anxiety, stage fright, or general anxiety, improvisation creates an ideal experiential learning environment to practice dealing with your feelings in a totally different way. Through basic improv exercises, participants will learn to use the tools of acceptance, non-judgement, and present moment awareness to address the thoughts and feelings that can get in the way of living fully. This class examines how the stories we tell ourselves often create unnecessary suffering, and explores what we can do to bring healing to this area. Chris Dinger, creator and intructor of this workshop is a professional performer and Executive Director of SAK. Chris is not a therapist, nor is this workshop meant to replace therapy. This workshop is an exploration of the process that helped lift Chris from a life bogged down with persistent anxiety to a life where he can feel a variety of emotions without getting trapped by them (most of the time). Stop fighting with your anxiety and learn a new way to approach the world. Let us help you begin that journey!
