Our bodies are our greatest resource and provide a direct path for exploring our unconscious, limiting beliefs, and the emotions tied to them. The issues are in the tissues. By increasing awareness of our bodies, we connect with the here-and-now, where change and growth are possible. Habitual beliefs and behaviors formed early in life lead to habitual ways of responding that limit life experience. When we learn to recognize the ways we have organized ourselves around these beliefs, we can discover that there are other choices available.
Increasing awareness of our somatic sense of self provides new options for developing more effective psychological and physical patterns. This experiential workshop blends the slow, developmental movement of Cortical Field Reeducation with individual and group Gestalt work to address how habitual, unconscious beliefs and behaviors formed early in life lead to habitual ways of responding that limit life experience.
