Inaugural Community Shake of 2021
Yesterday, we had our first community TRE® shake for this year. Last year, we ran one for every full moon, from about May till December, but the shifting days were a bit disruptive for us.
So this year, we finally settled on running them on the last Sunday of every month. This way, we can plan our dates ahead, and anyone who would like to make a regular date with us for a group shake can too!
A Cosy Group
Given the short run up time from our announcement of the event, we had a rather small turn out, which made for a very cosy start of our series. It meant we had a chance to take the time to share where we were before the shake, set intentions for what we hoped to release during the shake and also to share where we found ourselves post-shake.
It felt incredibly safe and intimate and I think that affected the quality of shake I had myself.
We all found that we had each experienced something new or unexpected in our shake given the new context, and my shake had such a profound effect on me that I found myself knocked out an hour later! That hasn’t happened for a while!
How does your system respond differently when you do TRE® in a group to when you do your shake alone?
How the Session Ran
Our attendee was someone who hadn’t done very much TRE® previously, so I guided a short stretching session before we got into the tremoring to make sure that she could access the tremor experience.
I was also aware of keeping an eye on what was going on with her and keeping a conversation going so that she could feel safe to speak up, and also so that she have suggestions for different things she could try during her shake.
I learned that my body was willing and able to do some pretty cool things even though my mind was also focused onward. My spine went into a flex / stretch that felt marvellous and I also experienced a heat release from my sacrum at one point. And, like I said, a hour after the shake, my system knocked me out for a good 45 minutes It was brilliant!
Today, my system is still in clearing mode with a runny nose, but I really felt connected with why I think having access to TRE® is so essential, and why having a routine of using it for self-care is so supportive for the wellness of our systems.
