About The Event
“The TIMBo program opened my eyes, my mind, and my heart. Throughout the next eight weeks I discovered more about myself than I had in the last 20 years. Through the guidance of TIMBo I waded through…the complex emotions…and began to make sense of where they were coming from. Most of all the program showed me how to begin to give myself the gift of patience and self-compassion…”
Over 8 sessions we use discussion, mindful movement, breath work, and meditation to awaken the process of liberation. Designed to enrich your sense of self, wholeness, and worth while using these concrete and effective tools! Preregistration required.
What is TIMBo?
TIMBo is either an 8 or 16 session mindfulness based intervention that includes mindful discussions on topics such as compassion, fear, confidence, shame, awareness and perspective. Discussions also include how and where emotions are felt and manifest in the body and incorporate breathing techniques to help in creating full body awareness. TIMBo sessions always close with simple and gentle asana followed by a guided meditation. The TIMBo program is trauma informed and gender responsive (designed to be suitable for women who have experienced trauma) and is appropriate for everyone, regardless of an individual’s exposure to trauma or experience with yoga. Participating in all 16 sessions of TIMBo has been proven to decrease the symptoms of depression, anxiety and PTSD and increase rates of self compassion. TIMBo participants receive a workbook which is used during each session and to which they can refer between sessions and after the program ends. The TIMBo program can be attended multiple times as it is applicable to your current emotional, physiological, and environmental state and there is always room to cultivate more self compassion. The TIMBo program provides a very solid foundation should TIMBo participants choose to train to become facilitators of the program. Groups meet twice a week for between 1 and 1.5 hours each.
*Your TIMBo group is not a training or a continuing education style course. It is not a webinar or an instructed course, or an experience for those seeking tools for their clinical practice.
Is TIMBo for you?
TIMBo is not a good fit for everyone. To experience the full potential of the TIMBo program, individuals must have the willingness and desire to engage in a personal journey of self-inquiry and self-discovery. During the TIMBo program, individuals may experience some emotional challenges or discomfort as a necessary part of the transformational journey. TIMBo allows individuals to experience the importance of being present and holding space for themselves and other group members, while sometimes “being uncomfortable” as a necessary part of the journey towards health, healing and recovery.
TIMBo is beneficial for anyone who is willing to show up with an open mind, a willingness to accept themselves and others each moment of each session and the courage to cultivate awareness without judgment in regards to how or what they are feeling. In accordance with trauma informed programming, TIMBo is structured, repetitive and though your presence is required, your active participation is entirely voluntary. You are welcome to contribute as much or as little as you are comfortable during our group sessions and you will not be forced or pressed to do anything that you are not comfortable doing. TIMBo is suitable for individuals who have never practice yoga or meditation. The yoga postures are simple, repetitive mindful movements paired with breath, allowing participants of all abilities to feel the benefits of a gentle yoga practice.
TIMBo is a program that cultivates a compassionate connection between the body and the mind as well as creates a connection between group members. You will find that you begin to look forward to connecting with your TIMBo group during the week as the group and sessions begin to give you a sense of well-being and feeling grounded. This process takes a little time, (about 4-6 classes) so please be prepared and just keep showing up. The TIMBo program will allow you new insights, understandings and compassion for yourself and for those around you. It will affect how you are in relationship with not only yourself, but those around you. It provides powerful and effective tools for becoming a more present and compassionate parent, partner and colleague yet it is unlike any program out there. TIMBo is unique in its simplicity as it uses the innate wisdom and intuition of the group members to effect change in one another. It is a program that assumes we can trust individuals to arrive at healing thought patterns and behaviors through the safety of the group and the ability of the practices to help integrate new learning. It is truly revolutionary.
*TIMBo is not suitable for individuals who are not willing or able to commit to the weekly sessions.
