It’s essential to include the body to move a client through sustained change and transformation. Working with and through the body creates the space for what wants to come to life in emotions, desires, commitment, longing, and life goals. It also allows the client to be a stronger observer of how their conditioned tendency keeps them from a fulfilled life, and how the conditioned tendency is also a valuable informant into the emotional life and the healthy expression of needs. In this course, you will learn how the soma holds our evolutionary thrust towards wholeness, complexity, interconnectedness, and love - and how to free these virtues from habituated contractions.
In the morning sessions, we will experience different somatic shapes that are connected to our emotional, psychological, energetic, and spiritual lives. We will explore how to work with these shapes with our clients. This will be followed by a demonstration by one of the teachers and then a question and answer period. In the afternoon, you will work with these distinctions with a fellow student as client and bodyworker. You will also receive feedback on your shape, openings and transformation, quality of touch, presence, and connection. It is a great learning environment to be in together.
