TRE modifications and principles for working with MS and other chronic diseases.

Led by Michael Morin Nissen

In the TRE® session, everyone will shake. Michael will demonstrate various modifications when working with people with chronic diseases.

He will also demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of different foot positions in TRE®. We all have tendencies to position our bodies so that we confirm dysregulation, in the session we will play with this element, both for ones own sake, but also to understand what to look out for when working with people with chronic diseases.

You also have the opportunity to ask questions about both the topic of the talk as well as your own personal process.

TRE® and connecting to the Joy of Sensation

-A talk by Robyn Dalzen
Intimacy Coach, Consent Trainer and TRE® provider

This is a free talk and open to anyone.

Robyn’s work is at the intersection of mindfulness, consent, embodiment and sexuality — guiding people to slow down and bring awareness to what they desire, practice the skills to communicate those desires, and create clear agreements to receive exactly what they want.

Robyn Dalzen

Read more here.

Some of the benefits of TRE® include supporting people to connect to sensation in their body, to expand their capacity to feel and move emotion, and to self-regulate and choose their experience moment to moment. These skills and capabilities are essential to healthy relating and intimacy.

Robyn will talk about the role TRE® can play in this process, and how to integrate it with some of the other methods and tools in this field.

 

About Robyn Dalzen

I am an intimacy coach, facilitator, and certified TRE® provider. I help people feel at home in their bodies, create boundaries in all aspects of their lives, and deepen their joy and intimacy.

I have been working in this area for five years (after a 15-year career in leadership development in the environmental sector).

I am co-founder of the School of Consent with Dr. Betty Martin, creator of the Wheel of Consent — a model for creating agreements that bring integrity to relating.

TRE® for Peak Sports Performance

-A talk by Richmond Heath
Physiotherapist, TRE® Certification Trainer and Founder of TRE® Australia

This is a free talk and open to anyone.

People looking to improve their performance (especially at the elite level) are generally not interested in learning about stress or hearing about trauma– they’re focused on future outcomes & what they can do to achieve them.

They need to know how TRE® can help them:

Richmond Heath

Read more here.

  • train strength beyond their 1-repetition max
  • improve their heart-rate variability so they can recover faster from training
  • keep them calm & relaxed under pressure so they can make better decisions
  • improve their dynamic core stability to prevent injury & optimize speed & power
  • support & enhance other treatments for injury recovery
  • help them drop into ‘the zone’ where all peak performance occurs – both individually & collectively with their team-mates

Only then might they be interested in understanding how physically releasing stress & tension from their body will support their mental health & physical well-being, or that if they want to sustain elite performance over time they will need to become elite sleepers as well.

In this talk we will cover all this & more so you can use TRE® to improve your performance or support others to improve theirs.

About Richmond Heath

I am a Physiotherapist, TRE® Certification Trainer & the Founder of TRE® Australia.
With a background in high level sport I am passionate about empowering people to use TRE® to improve their performance & achieve their goals.
In addition to all the physical benefits of TRE® I am particularly passionate about the use of TRE® to entrain peak performance flow states, both for individuals & to create the neurobiological conditions required for group flow states essential to elite team performance.

Q&A & Guided Tremor Session

Led by Richmond Heath and Hans Holter Solhjell

Following the free talk you are invited to join a 2 hour Q&A session that will incorporate a guided group tremor. Richmond will do the first hour of this session and Hans will do the second hour. You will be welcome to ask questions on anything to do with the talk & have the opportunity to be guided by one of the leading TRE® trainers world-wide.

In the guided tremor there will be a focus upon:

  • recognizing & responding to subtle states of subconscious bracing against the tremor;
  • use of positioning to facilitate deeper tremoring;
  • integrating capping & weight-bearing of peripheral parts of the body to help centralize the tremors surrendering the mind to flow states during TRE®.
