Assalamu alaykum wa rahmataAllah wa barakatuhu!
Both regular and late registration are now closed. To be informed the next time that this class is offered, contact me here inshaAllah.
FYI, the reason I close registration is not a marketing thing. Having registration close creates energetic space and a boundary of relief for both you as a student and me as a teacher. Closing it ensures energy is not being dripped constantly. It gives me a chance to focus solely on teaching as well as developing new content. It gives you the student structure. It also helps me organize and dedicate time to my student onboarding process for each registration period.
Thank you for considering taking my class. This 2 hour class on anxiety is part of a 9 month course titled 'Holistic Emotional Healing for Anxiety, Trauma, and Depression'. I'm opening this class up to the public for anyone who would like to benefit from it. You can take it without being registered for the full course. It is a standalone class, meaning you can take it without context of the other classes.
This 2 hour class is focused on three things as they relate to anxiety: 1) understanding; 2) managing; 3) healing. This is not a class that will teach you techniques to use for anxiety. Yes, those are great, but you probably already know those (things like deep-breathing, exercise, etc).
This class is going to teach you the fundamentals of hacking your own anxiety. You will learn how to differentiate your anxiety into your 'recurring anxiety' and 'isolated anxiety'. You will be inspired to reflect and pinpoint and deconstruct what gives you anxiety. You will be given specific tools and high-powered questions that help you deconstruct your anxiety, so you can get your power back.
You will be taught new perspectives, such as learning and training yourself to be relaxed even when you're anxious. I personally go through more than a dozen examples from my own life and share many examples of recurring anxiety that I've healed. The class comes with full downloadable notes and two extra worksheets. There is also a homework assignment that will force you to declare action and help you determine how to put what you've learned into practice. As with anything else, you will get however much you put into this.
At the end, there is a Q&A session. These are some of the questions submitted by current students that I answered during this session's Q&A:
- "Lately, when I'm approaching my cycle I feel so tense and vulnerable that any small situation can push my buttons and I over react without even thinking. It’s hormonal changes I know but is there anything I can do to make it less?"
- "I used to be a forgiving person, never hold bad feelings towards anyone and I can’t forget or forgive recently..It’s like I have a scar in my heart that I can’t heal. Seeing these people who hurt me makes me feel sad about myself. I don’t feel bad about them but I feel how much I was hurt to the point I don’t want to forget that. But I hate this feeling. This is not me!"
- "How can I be loyal to myself as an introspective person whilst enjoying the company of others regardless of their tendency?"
- "What do you do when people you love trigger self-doubt in you? What are healthy ways to handle criticism? Because I quickly go on the defense and throw blame elsewhere when I am criticized, even if it's for my own benefit."
- "How can I learn to trust myself again if I've made mistakes in the past and even repeated those same mistakes? I'm scared to trust myself and hurt myself or others. Someone recently contacted me again and this is a person who really hurt me before. This person was someone I fell in love with and who abandoned me and it led me to months of severe depression. Just when I'm being introduced to someone else too who my family raves about. Is this a test from Allah? How can I deal with this person who hurt me? Especially after I have explained to him before how much he hurt me."
Lots of love,
