Introduction to Somatic Psychotherapy & Embodied Communication

Babies arrive in this world eager and expectant to form relationships, expressing their eagerness through their gaze, facial expressions, voice, and movements. In adult life, this eagerness remains implicitly alive in our bodies. Considering that the greater portion of early communication is nonverbal and that to become embodied, children need to be touched within loving respectful relationships, we will discuss why it is essential to embrace embodied forms of psychotherapy and personal growth.

In this seminar, you will discover how you can help your body in its struggle to come into being, how emotions are experiences of feeling in the body and what to do when they threaten to overwhelm the mind, and how trauma can disrupt the inner collaborative communication between mind and body.

It is true for all of us that our capacity for emotional connection and bodily presence carries the imprint of our early relational experiences. This seminar will help you create a loving container in which body and mind can thrive in an empathic dance between a deeply feeling body and an embodied psyche.
