Grounded Joy (Linz)

Grounded Joy – Heartbeat level workshop

“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”
— Mother Theresa

Everyone – or at least most people – would like to be happy. There is often both a conscious and unconscious search for Joy going on. Even on a body (neurobiology) level we are looking for the right input so we can have an experience of pleasure in our nervous system. Food, drinks, screens, social media, shopping, addiction, … each of us has their own way to find this feeling of happiness inside.

In this workshop we will use the heartbeat map of the 5 Rhythms to investigate what we call ‘Grounded Joy’. Grounded joy is a term used to describe the experience of joy that is anchored in the present moment and connected to the physical sensations in the body. This type of joy is different from fleeting or surface-level happiness, as it is rooted in a deeper sense of well-being and connection to self.

In our heartbeat map we will investigate how fear, anger and sadness influence our ability to feel joy. We will learn how to use these different emotions to help ground our joy in our embodied experience. We will dive into how joy lives in our body and how grounded joy, compassion and gratitude are ancient companions on this journey we call life.

The workshop counts as heartbeat days for the 5 Rhythms Teacher Training.
