Our relationship with our body is our first and most important relationship. Yet many people feel uncomfortable in their own skin. When we are able to live in our bodies instead of hiding from them, we are able to have relationship with ourselves and then with others.
This workshop focuses on aspects of body image and embodiment, including working directly with eating disorders. It will include theory and also be a process group with an experiential component. We will explore embodiment through somatic embodied processes, expressive arts and drama therapy. We will learn to help the client listen to the secret conversations inside, because those conversations have to do with perfectionism and shame. Transforming the shame under those conversations can lead to creativity, life force, and living authentically and fully.
You will learn to help clients:
• Move beyond the toxic shame into healthy shame that can allow healthy nourishment and pleasure.
• Talk to the inner child at different ages.
• Identify a kind inner coach.
• Learn mindfulness techniques to feel into emptiness and fullness.
• Work with the secret conversations inside.
• Develop and/or deepen the relationship a person has with her body, which begins with kindness.
• Learn to gently open to feeling the vital life force through embodied journal writing and movement, and through exploring the body’s story of embodiment.
There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.
