Eating Disorders & Self Love vs the Inflated Ego with Bridget Lavin

Eating Disorders. Self love. Self Worth.

And what it means to dissolve the ego while building the confidence we need for radical self acceptance.

About Bridget Lavin:

I began my transformative journey with yoga 17 years ago as a young girl. At the time I had no idea how much yoga would impact and shape my life. It wasn’t until my early 20s that I began to wake up to the wisdom of yoga. The practice brought me so much relief, joy, freedom, and deep peace that I felt compelled to dive deeper into its ancient teachings. I adventured to an ashram called Shoshoni Yoga Retreat Center where I received my 200HR certification. After a handful of years teaching I opened Lighthouse Yoga with the hopes of offering others the chance to experience the gifts and magic of yoga. I firmly believe as one person heals, the world heals, as one person wakes up, the world begins to stir.

Channeling Anger for Creation

Let’s talk the spirituality of RAGE. How do we USE that energy to be of service? There is a lot of programming in our society that tells us we can't be exactly who we are or show our true emotions. They tell us they're "unprofessional" and "distracting". They tell us we're "too much" and simultaneously tell us we're "not enough". I'm here not just to tell you but to show you that you CAN be exactly who you are and have exactly what you want, and that your emotions hold important and beautiful  messages for you and your life.

Are you angry? Bring it. Sad? Brilliant. Afraid? You're not alone. Bursting with joy? Let's celebrate. Holding anything back? Let it out. Feeling sexy AF? Own it. I want to see and hold ALL of what you bring to the table--nothing is shameful or wrong.

I created transformational photography to be an experience that lets you witness unseen parts of yourself and see yourself in your authentic, powerful truth. You can truly see with tangible, photographic evidence the totality of your human expression and process as you go deep, burn away that which is not you, and step from the ash into the next empowered version of yourself. We will rise and move forward together.

Heather is a transformational photographer, writer, and visionary currently based in New York who is passionate about holding space, bringing beauty and artistry to intense emotion, and creating space for deep personal and global transformation. She moved across the country from California to follow the call of her heart and dove into communities built on relational practices like Circling, Authentic Relating, Ecstatic Dance, and Polarity that have helped shape her life and photographic process. Heather has facilitated powerful transformations and led workshops at multiple women's retreats, and is currently writing a book about the important part rage has to play in our lives and how it affects relationships across the board.

Grief as a Pathway to Personal Transformation

I don't know if I have experienced anything more painful than sitting by the bedside of someone I love, as they slowly lose their life.

To watch them lose their mind and then their body. If it happens quickly, or if it happens slowly. It cuts us to our core.

Every grief has a different flavor. I have experienced anger after suicide. Rage after doctor neglect. Confusion after watching a tiny casket be lowered into the Earth. Happiness and relief as the silence finally fell.

Death. A great teacher. I have cursed God. Prayed to God. Fought with God. Rejected God. Felt held by God. All in death.

It bring us to or away from God. But we come to our morality - and there is a spiritual element to the passing of a loved one that is undeniable.

And we can repress - and spiral into drugs, avoidance, and depression Or, we can rise - and really go deeper into what it means to live in a fuller way - more connected to Spirit, and our core. Or, (which is my experience) - a confusing dance of the two.

We are talking about how grief can be a spiritual tool for transformation.

Aris’ yoga journey has been one of deep transformation and healing.  Yoga has empowered her through some of the hardest moments in her life and created a deep understanding of the impact yoga can have in the healing processes. Because of this her teachings often have a trauma informed and therapeutic approach in conjunction with the traditional Akanda Shakti teachings.

As the 2018 Yoga Journal Ambassador, Aris traveled to document the impact of yoga. Throughout this journey she was able to witness the profound effects of yoga in various communities from studios, to the Pentagon, prison programs, and the implementation in communities exposed to critical life circumstances.  She was able to partake in conversations surrounding important and often hard to discuss topics. Through this she realized a deeper calling from the yoga community. She believes that yoga taken off the mat and used in society is a key for understanding, healing, and building a more united future.

Aris is passionate about using yoga to not only bring balance and unity to our personal lives but to our communities. She excited to share this passion and empower others through SoulWork Events and online courses.
