Taming the Bear: Taking the Bite Out of Stress
NEXT CLASS BEGINS JANUARY 7th, 2021!
Stress is an unavoidable fact of life.
How you handle stress determines how it affects you. You can let stress ruin your day, destroy your mood, make you sick, or even kill you. Or, you can learn how to handle our stress in such a way that you grow and find equanimity in your life. This may sound crazy, but it’s true. The choice is yours.
Taming the Bear is a 12 week class designed to teach emotional intelligence and a concrete method for identifying and changing the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck in painful and unproductive patterns. Practicing the tools we teach increases emotional regulation and resilience to life's difficult moments.
The curriculum is based on the practice of cultivating the capacity to witness yourself and your life with self compassion and acceptance. These skills build the ability to see and hold the truth of your current moment, whatever the roots and however great the discomfort. This in turn allows you to shift how you see the world, and thus, how the world feels to you.
After taking this class, students are able to bring their best self to their work, relationships, and perhaps most importantly, to how they engage with themselves. Changing your limiting beliefs frees you up to respond to life instead of continually reacting out of old patterns. You can create a life that honors your values and supports your needs. In short, you are able to shift out of survival mode and live life with greater confidence, compassion, and conviction.

Taming the Bear is a 12-week online class that teaches you the skills you need to choose differently when faced with life’s inevitable stressors. Each week you learn simple practical skills that, when practiced, will change your relationship with stress.
You Will Learn:
This 12-week class provides 2 short weekly video lectures, weekly live calls with the instructors, an active community forum, handouts and simple homework exercises for you to practice what you are learning. The lessons are archived so you can come back to them again and again. It sounds like a lot but we have designed this class to maximize value while still fitting into your busy schedule. All the pieces come in small chunks that you can do on your own time.
Taming the Bear teaches you a transformation process based on practical, do-able skills that anyone can learn to transform their relationship with stress.
With these skills, stress becomes a curiosity, a challenge, and an opportunity to learn.
You begin to question your basic assumptions and soon you respond to stressful situations differently. You'll experience less emotional reactivity.
This class gives you enough time to learn the skills and enough resources to continue to practice on your own after the course is over.
Practice these skills over and over, and soon the process becomes second nature. When this happens, change happens naturally.
This may sound like magic, and, in some ways it is.
The tools help you see and understand the unconscious beliefs that are keeping you stuck. Once you understand exactly what these beliefs are (and they are usually not what you think they are) and begin practicing the process taught in Taming the Bear, the stuckness dissolves and life begins to change, sometimes in quite dramatic ways. Therein, lies the magic.
