UPCOMING 2017 COURSES IN THE UK

Frome, Somerset: 

2017 Series of Somatic Exploration and Movement Shiatsu

DECEMBER 8-10

SELF AND SOCIETY
This workshop explores a central human dilemma: How can we value our individuality at the same time as living harmoniously with other people?

We often suppress our spontaneous self because of a fear of other people’s disapproval. Sometimes this is appropriate but more often it inhibits our creativity and authenticity.

One can see each individual as a community; a community of sub-personalities, organs, muscles and bones which are held together into a unified sense of self by the fascia and nervous systems.
Society’s expectations can silence most of this community. The workshop will explore, through bodywork, movement and voicework, how to wake up and listen to these forgotten parts of the self and along the way demonstrates a way of living with others creatively, valuing each others’ differences and respectfully resolving conflict.

Venue: This workshop is held in Frome and participants have the option of staying in our centre, in which we can offer bed and breakfast with use of a kitchen to make shared meals in the evening.

2017  COURSES OUTSIDE THE UK

 


Wiesbaden, Germany: Tensegrity, Fascia and Developmental meridians
Dates: 18-19 November 2017

A workshop of Movement, Bodywork and Experiential Anatomy to explore how the fascia and connective tissues give a sense of integrity both physically and emotionally.  more

These tissues connect everything together and give a sense of elasticity and wholeness to the body. We will show how to contact the fascia through specific qualities of touch, how to feel and develop the elasticity of the fascia in oneself and how to use that sensation to find a sense of physical coordination and ease in movement.Bill Palmer’s research with infant development has shown that the classical meridians show the way in which babies learn to move by connecting different body parts. As adults we find other ways of moving, particularly using spirals and movements that cross the midline. These pathways of connection are embodied in the muscles and fascia, forming ‘personal meridians’ different to the innate ones. The workshop will show how to work with these myo-fascial meridians and help clients to be aware of their unique way of moving and being.
