About this event
“We do not have bodies we are bodies.… I do not own it or inhabit it, from it, I arise.” Intelligence in the Flesh, Guy Claxton
On this webinar we will explore- what is embodiment? How can we support a meaningful integration of embodiment into our practice? How do we support and embrace our different bodies?
Embodiment is central to our existence, yet embodiment is not supported by western mainstream culture. To be at home in our bodies we need to start from our present lived experience. We also need to challenge dualistic thinking and unconscious internalised prejudice.
On this webinar I’d like to:-
– Unpack what it means to be an embodied and extended system.
– Find a balance between theoretical and intuitive ways of knowing. Exploring embodied thinking and intelligent movement.
– To begin an exploration of marginalisation. Both how embodiment itself is marginalised and how to work with our own and our clients embodied experiences of marginalisation.
Suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists and allied practitioners who want to welcome embodiment into your work. It will be a useful taster for the 2022 Embodied-Relational Therapy training starting in April.
Places will be limited to 12. A few concessionary places are available at £25, please contact me if you wish to book one.
