WEALTH OF THE BODY
An Experiential Workshop for Mental Health & Body Centered Professionals
Friday, October 27th 6-9p.m. & Saturday October 28th 9:30-4:30 p.m.
We are an intensely alive energy field. Optimal health can be defined as a state of fluidity at all levels of existence (spiritual, mental, emotional and physical). Inner body awareness is critical to being present. Being must be FELT. As the habit of feeling the inner body is cultivated, one becomes aware that true aliveness comes from within and only we restrict our flow. Integrating
Yoga’s five elements of Samkhya with its ancient philosophy and Core Energetics, a body oriented therapy rooted in Reich, Lowen and Pierrakos , practitioners will have an opportunity to deepen their self-awareness through the body. Regardless of your modality, integrating the body into therapy offers a more holistic, integrative experience. We learn from experience. Words do not teach. Your connection to yourself is the teacher.
In this workshop you will:
Receive general background information and suggested references regarding the roots of Yoga and body oriented therapies.
Have direct experiences working with your body developing a deeper and more expansive inner awareness
Experience options for working with the body in various settings and to varying degreesFacilitators:

In private practice for 30 years. In 2000, seeking a more integrative practice, I received8 years postgraduate training in body centered psychotherapy through the International Institute of Core Evolution. I was transformed personally and professionally. Most pain comes from resistance and all resistance manifests as contraction in the body. Our relationship to our body directly impacts our mental health.
