Dinner Event with Glen Alex
You’re invited to an empowering dinner with Author & Health Coach Glen Alex on Saturday, October 12th, at a private home in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas.
"The Art of Boundaries"
Having strong boundaries is about more than just saying NO. It’s about self-awareness and self-Love—and asserting that. It’s about expressing your true desires and needs, instead of “playing small to keep the peace.”
Most of us never really learned about this kind of self-loving protection when we were young.
Boundaries make room for the deeper connections and intimacy we actually want to have. As statistics climb about the incidence of chronic loneliness, isolation, and lack of belonging, it is not boundaries that are keeping people from one another. What keeps us from one another is fear of harm, which causes us to withdraw into our shells and away from one another out of fear of what will happen if we engage. This is primarily based on past experiences and an unwillingness to take risks for fear of feeling pain or reliving childhood suffering. We have become quite averse to feeling pain because we have few skills that help us to cope with it. Many of us avoid intimate relationships because we are seeking to keep the injured child inside of us as free from harm as possible. The more secure we are that we can endure some painful feelings, the less we avoid each other. With an avoidant approach, we might have to feel something we don’t want to, so we steer clear. If we set a boundary, we might have to talk about what helps us feel safe and stand up for ourselves. We might become vulnerable. We might experience intimacy, and if it gets taken away from us it will hurt.
The questions that guide us in creating healthy boundaries are: Are you treating yourself and others as sacred? How about their treatment of you? What does sacred treatment look like? These are some big questions to consider, but they can be answered when we are clear about our expectations. Who doesn’t want to feel sacred? Is there something preventing you from believing you, others, and every living thing are sacred? How would you like to be treated?
During this event, you will learn to raise your awareness of how you do (or don’t) communicate your boundaries in all areas of your life and begin to build a real skill set that will help you express your authentic preferences, desires and limits with ease.
