• How can I get out of my head?
• How can I be more social?
• How can I be more playful?
• How can I be in the moment?
• How can I feel free to express myself?
The only answer: Tackle this directly by putting yourself outside your comfort zone in one of the most social settings on earth.
• You won’t be able to get out of your head unless you have an established practice that releases your mind’s hold on you.
• You won’t be able to feel more social unless you can easily connect with others.
• You won’t be able to freely play and express yourself unless you work through the wounds holding you back.
• You won’t be able to change, unless you make a change. A big one.

Learn to detect and track your body’s anxiety impulses, as they paralyze or choke you up. develop the muscle memory to keep this energy where it belongs – in your centre, not with thoughts up in your head.
The self-realized body produces joy all by itself. Why are you unhappy? Your thoughts would not be a problem if there were not a body to suffer them. In this process, you realize the natural state of the body & mind as contentment. Cut out the alcohol and learn to harness this energy like your own natural ego-softening cocktail.
With the use of over 30 non-duality exercises, we learn to feel and mirror the other peron’s awareness, emotional and physical reality, and we come home to a shared sense of experience.
