Grinberg Method workshops usually last a day or two and focus on different subjects, offering theoretical concepts as well as practical tools for people to use in their daily lives.
Anger as an Aspect of your Will – One-day workshop
Anger is a natural ability of the body, which contains clarity, determination and will. When anger is experienced naturally it directs attention to actions or situations that are unhealthy for us, in order for us to stop them.
In our society anger is often related to as a negative experience. The workshop aims to create clarity about what anger actually is, so that it can be experienced and acted from as a source of strength, rather than as a destructive force that you experience as working against yourself or others. When used in this way, anger can bring you closer to what you want and allow better, simpler and more direct contact with the people around you.
Transforming Pain – Two-day workshop
Ordinarily, pain appears in people's lives as a source of suffering. Efforts are constantly made to avoid, overcome and explain pain, and there is usually a strong wish that we could rid ourselves of it altogether. And yet, pain is here to stay. In this workshop you learn to recognize your habitual ways of dealing with pain and to shift your attention to the actual experience in the body itself. No matter what kind of pain you are dealing with – physical, of the heart, emotional – the readiness to experience it fully in the body, with no preconceived ideas about it, allows us to undergo a transformation.
Riding Fear – Two-day workshop
Fear is an inseparable part of being alive. It keeps us awake, calls our attention to the moment, or may point out a danger or a challenge. We have been encountering fear since the beginning of our lives. Often our past encounters with fear, and the conclusions we drew as a result of them, have dictated who we are today, still determining what we dare to be or to do. If, however, we learn how to stop being afraid of fear, how to stop seeing it only as something bad, we can benefit from the energy that comes with it. This workshop focuses on how to achieve that.
Towards Silence – Two-day workshop
Silence is a natural ability of the body. It is defined by the decrease, or absence of noise. If we wish for silence we need to strive for it constantly, because it is easy to lose. We can actively achieve silence in any situation and at any time of the day. This workshop deals directly with the different kinds of noise you experience, some of which function as a constant background, others of which peak in situations where you need silence the most. By experiencing different depths of silence, you will discover how it affects your level of energy, clarity and vitality.
To Simply Feel – Two-day workshop
Feelings are an integral part of our life, and yet we rarely experience them as being simple. There are good and bad feelings, wanted and un-wanted ones, feelings that lead to other feelings. We also tend to have a limited range of emotions that we feel over and over again, no matter what the situation is. The purpose of this workshop is to allow you to experience the full myriad of possible human emotions, simply and physically. You will learn "To Simply Feel" – whatever naturally arises from each situation.
Using Personal History – Two-day workshop
The way we carry our personal history with us affects our present and future. Our history could be a source of power, give recognition to our abilities, allow us to learn from our mistakes, and strengthen our resolve regarding different matters. Often though, the way we perceive our history becomes a burden and leaves us with a limited range of options. We have regrets, sorrows, blame and guilt; we would like it to be different.
In this workshop, with each memory, event or conclusion you work with, you will be able to recognize a change in how you relate to it. The change may appear in the way you feel about it, the amount of details you remember, in your conclusions as a result of it and more. With time and practice, you will stop seeing current situations as if they were a repetition of your past.
To Will – Two-day workshop
We are all born with a will. Over the years, life circumstances, education and our surroundings all have their effect on it, molding our will into what we would relate to as being strong or weak. We end up sure that what we want and how we go about getting it is the only alternative we have; it is as if our will were finite, defined and already formed. This workshop teaches that we can exercise our will and come to trust it. We can learn how to let it manifest in a healthy way, without the limitations of our past: to will with everything that we are as humans, with our minds, our bodies, our fears, our needs and wishes.
