Overcoming the Fear of Success

Overcoming the Fear of Success

Most people have heard about the fear of failure, but many aren't aware that a fear of success is just as common. In fact, the excitement of success--either anticipated or actual--can feel close to anxiety for many. It might manifest as being anxious when everything is going really well, or feeling guilty for succeeding. And worries about social rejection or alienation from friends and family, feeling like a fraud or being unworthy, or believing that success has negative consequences can all lead to sabotaging, procrastinating, or avoiding it altogether. Such fears and hindering behaviors can stem from beliefs or basic physiology, both of which can actually be running your life under the radar. Your physiology can mix up excitement with fear, and signal scary feelings and thoughts about success that dictate your subsequent actions. However, by syncing your body and mind to the same goals, achieving and enjoying success can come within your reach. This course will show you how.

We all experience varying degrees of trauma throughout our lives—from reading the daily news to larger traumatic events in our own personal histories. These traumas can manifest as muscular tension, digestive disorders, a weakened immune system, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and depression, or be triggered and aggravated in other ways.

This experiential workshop introduces the physiology of trauma and provides techniques for managing trauma on a daily basis. Whether you have experienced trauma or work with those who have, you'll learn techniques from somatic psychotherapy, yoga, and Chinese medicine to help heal the traumatized body and mind.

Join psychotherapist Susanne Babbel for a day of healing and rejuvenation, and -take home practical skills to nurture and sustain you. This workshop also includes a 45-minute restorative yoga class.
