PDF Brochure: Introduction to Wholebody Focusing
Wholebody Focusing is a relational and experiential MindBody process which reconnects us to our innate Body Wisdom. It is a spacious and gentle way to:
- relax and unwind from daily stresses
- tap into more life energy and inner resources
- experience more ease and less anxiety
- reduce suffering from pain and heal past trauma
- experience a deeper connection with self, my essence and in relationship with others
During this introductory evening we will awaken the consciousness of our Living Body and directly experience its unique vitality and intelligence. In a safe and structured way, we will reconnect to our own bodily knowing, as part of the living body of our environment. Through inner directed movements of the body’s own making, we discover a sense of ourselves in our own wholeness and life possibilities. This allows us to open up to a connection with others in surprising and mutually enlivening ways.
Registration and pre-payment online requested.
Future learning opportunities will be available including one to one work in person or via Skype. Please also see our 3 day workshop on Foundations of Wholebody Focusing (June 1-3), and a 2 day advanced workshop on Inter-relational Wholebody Heartfelt Connection Practise (June 4-5).
