    Description

    When we genuinely care for ourselves and others, it feels good. It renews us, contributes to the overall wellbeing of those we give our attention to, is a way to be of service, and allows us to live the best version of ourselves we can be.

    But too often balanced care moves towards overcare, which can drain our energy and sap our reserves leaving us worn out with nothing left to give.

    It shows up in many ways. Maybe it’s fretting over a business that isn't growing fast enough. It might be nervousness about choices our children or grandchildren are making. And just as often that overcare is focused on ourselves as agonizing emotions creep in over health issues, bank balances, and what we’ve done (and haven’t done) with our lives.

    No matter what is troubling us, the origins of our concerns can always be traced to genuine care.

    The business may have started as a desire to provide well being to your community. With our children and/or grandchildren love is almost certainly beneath the fear. And our own deep desires for health, sufficiency, self esteem and contentment likely preceded all the feelings of overwhelm that now overshadow real care.

    We might even tell ourselves that these burdens we carry—concern, self sacrifice, anxiety and chronic stress are signs that we really do care about something or someone.

    But it’s not true.

    Left unchecked, depleting emotions are unhealthy and lead to profound depletion. Maybe it shows up as anger that pushes those closest to us away. Or, perhaps, in a moment of utter frustration and fatigue we throw up our hands up in defeat for the business we were certain could have helped many.

    Most of us know the feeling of caring deeply and then wondering what happened: How could something that buoyed us now hurt so much?

    Simply said, overcare doesn’t feel good and benefits no one—neither the giver nor the receiver.

    But recognizing that fine line as we’re crossing it can be tricky, so being vigilant about the signposts is largely what this presentation is about.

    You’ll begin to identify areas of your life where genuine care exists, and we’ll consider where overcame may be lurking. We’ll mark both on a chart of emotions then learn one of HeartMath’s neutralizing tools.

    In less than an hour you will:
    • experience how care vs. overcare feels
    • learn to distinguish between the two
    • leave with an effective skill set to jump start your return trip to care

    The zone of genuine care is where renewing emotions such as peace, calm, and contentment reside, and who wouldn’t value spending a little more time there every day?

    About Ellen Synakowski

    "I used up a big chunk of my adult life feeling utterly depleted. Once I learned to recognize the feelings that led to stress—and dismantle them—I became passionate about helping parents and others lead their lives with ease." 

    Ellen Synakowski is passionate about helping parents and families. Caring for yourself is the most loving thing you can do for your health and your family, especially if you have a child with medical issues. That’s what I learned 15 years ago while caring for my son, who was born with a medical condition that required 25+ appointments each month and multiple surgeries.

    If you know a parent who is stressed out and has lost their own sense of value because of having to constantly care for a loved one, I offer a series of tools that can help them gain balance, without giving up what’s most important to their family.

    Ellen Synakowski supports calm, heart-centered lives, especially for parents and caregivers. She has been a HeartMath student since 2009 and is a certified trainer and coach for both HeartMath® and the Connection Practice® as well as being a registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist. She offers one-on-one coaching; live and online workshops and group coaching; and writes and speaks about engaging the heart in everyday living.

    A Dinner Event with Gary E. Schwartz, PhD:

    Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence: The Science and Ethics of Truth Seeking and Truth Abuse 

    7-Minute Spotlight:

    TBA

    Wednesday, April 8, 2020
    6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Dinner Event

    Description

    Join us for an evening and dinner with Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, as he discusses his latest findings he is publishing in his most recent book, Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence: The Science and Ethics of Truth Seeking and Truth Abuse.

    In his own words:

    ~

    When people (be they scientists, students, skeptics, grieving parents, media) would ask me why I began doing controversial research on the question of the possibility of survival of consciousness after physical death – an extraordinary claim, if ever there was one – I confessed to being “pushed and pulled in the same direction.” I would say:

    “I was pushed there by science, by theory, reasoning, and evidence.

    But I was pulled there by love, by Linda’s love for her deceased father, by Susy’s love for her deceased mother, by Stardust’s love for her deceased husband, etc.

    And when you are pushed and pulled in the same direction, it’s very hard to resist.”

    [Since then, there has been a number of extraordinary claims and supporting evidence and] in each instance, the professional pushing was not, by itself, enough (sufficient) for me to act on the existing scientific theory and evidence. Each professional “pushing force” required the simultaneous addition of a strong personal “pulling force” – specifically of love, caring, and compassion surrounding the specific claim – for me to take the professional plunge and transform my private (covert) conceptual musings into scientific (overt) research actions.

    Metaphorically speaking – and maybe physiologically as well – what was required was a confluence / synergy / harmony between my head and heart, both pointing in the same direction, for me to have the courage (and some would say, fool heartedness) to address such controversial claims.

    Extraordinary opportunities now exist for us to mature and evolve as a global species, but we will need extraordinary education if we are to benefit from these precious opportunities for our children and future generations.

    The opportunity is here; the choice is ours.
