In this setting, you will be part of a supportive community over the period of 1 month (4 classes, Tuesdays).
This is a closed group, whereby the same group of people meets each week. This format allows for greater trust and a chance to explore commitment and discipline as we investigate our addictions openly and courageously.
This is a 2hour weekly class in a virtual (online) setting for 4 weeks. This closed group is open to anyone curious about addiction, compulsive tendencies or dependencies for the first time as well as those who are very familiar with how it plays out in their lives.
What is said and who you see in KIX is confidential to co-create the safe, vulnerable space for this investigation. There are extra steps taken to ensure the safety and confidentiality in this online group setting.
KIX is a special combination of dance and sharing:
This format to explore addictions is based on a long personal history of (multiple) addictions, over 10 years of recovery and professional work.
KIX gives us a space to confront the nature of addiction. Addiction feeds off secrets, shame and isolation. KIX helps us to shed taboos, feel feelings, remember we are not alone and gain tools and perspective to unshackle us from compulsions and addictions. Big or small.
👣 Dance > We have the chance to express our feelings - or even discover them. We connect to our body - often abused by our addictions.
🎭 Sharing > to shed taboos by talking, learn of other people's experience and gain additional strength and hope.
💥 Other activities to express, discover, meet our addictions > We experience what it is like not to lie or to hide in our addictions alone. Because addiction feeds off secrets and isolation, we weaken the grip with these tools.
Addiction. Dependencies. Compulsive Behaviors:
Addiction includes any habits, behaviors, things we take, to escape. To escape our feelings, our reality. Addiction might also be anything that we chase - in an attempt to recreate a feeling or experience of high or euphoria.
Often it starts as a way to help us cope with life experiences yet over time we lose control and compulsively go towards those behaviors or substances. Addiction robs us from connection, freedom, intimacy. Sometimes we recognize this sensation subtly, in our innermost realms. Other times, addictions might run rampant in our external worlds.
Forms of addiction are wide-ranging. From hard-core drug usage to over-booked volunteering. Addictions have different levels of impact on our lives, however, the root cause and the healing are similar.
Drugs. Work. Social Media. Booze. Food. Sugar.
Nicotine. Sex. Netflix. Money. Love. Control. Power.
Codependency. Email. Orgasms. Adrenaline. Romance.
..... our unique flavors of addiction are endless. All are welcome to be explored here.
