Healing the Movement Patterns Distorted by Childhood Experience and Adult Trauma: CFR Week 2

Jan 28 - Feb 04, 2018 Begins in 1 week
with Harriet Goslins, Sybil Krauter & Ellen Kindl

“During this workshop, we will address layers of childhood experience and adult trauma simultaneously with the intention of resolving remaining physical injuries and habitual emotional limitations, while increasing our self-trust and self-compassion,” says Harriet Goslins. “Of equal importance, we’ll have the opportunity to reclaim and deepen our pleasure in moving. We will explore ‘unlearning before relearning’ so that we avoid layering a new compensation on top of an existing habit, which allows the old pattern that remains underneath to block full healing.
