Welcome to a one-day introduction to working with the body through deep listening and tracking of the felt sense.
Developing this presence brings us back to the body, grounding our concepts and interpretations in a concrete experiencing of the human being. It frees us from the reliance on what is explicit, concepts, clients story our assumptions by offering access to the level of implicit experience. This is a useful sensitivity to enhance your skills as a person, therapist, activist, supervisor, mediator or coach.
The workshop is experiential, based on the practice of Focusing, with a teaching component with handouts, respectful to each persons’ style of engagement.
