Embodied Boundaries: Establishing Safety & Differentiating Self from Other

Scroll Down to Register | Snow Date is February 8, 2018

Where does self end and other begin?  How can ‘we’ be a safe experience?   Learn about the natural development of ‘boundary’ from a somatic and developmental perspective. This workshop will help therapists work psychophysically with clients around self regulation and relational issues.  The day will primarily be experiential, with some time provided for conceptual integration through discussion.  

In this day-long workshop participants will:

  • Explore embodiment from a somatic perspective and use embodiment principles to help clients work with their sense of boundary practically, accessibly, and comfortably.
  • Learn how to teach elements of movement and awareness to clients from an embodied place within themselves.  
  • Experience the interplay between our internally and externally oriented sense perceptions.
  • Study the relationship between early developmental movement patterns that support inner focus and later developmental movement patterns that support outer focus.
  • Learn how to support the co-regulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems from an embodiment perspective.
