Workshop Details

Your natural, energetic signature is embedded in your body from birth and shapes your strengths, gifts, abilities, and how you relate to others. The 9 Energies system, co-founded by Susan and Martin Fisher, asserts that there are nine different physiologies active in humanity. Using your physical presence — body shape, eye quality, face shape, muscular tone, movement, several other attributes, and a simple physical evaluative process, we can distinguish which one of the nine different physiologies is active in your body.
In this workshop, you can discover the following:
• How to better use the set of innate talents, gifts, and abilities associated with your physiology
• How to more fully experience and participate in community and in life
• How to understand and use your body to move into peak performance and enhanced personal presence
Over the weekend, we’ll identify which of the nine physiologies, which the Fishers call the Natural Energies, is active in each participant, and then take part in a series of experiential exercises that can increase awareness and understanding of the various attributes and perspectives associated with each of the nine physiologies.
Benefits of this work include new tools to access your strengths, improved communication ability, and new knowledge of how our bodies help us enhance mindfulness in our lives.
Note: It is essential that participants refrain from alcohol and other substances for the duration of this workshop.
