Step into the art of Grounding and Holding Space in this empowering workshop. Learn essential techniques to anchor yourself and others in the present moment, fostering a sense of stability and security. Explore the power of mindful presence and active listening to create a safe and nurturing environment for personal growth and emotional processing. Whether you’re a healer, counsellor, or simply seeking to enhance your interpersonal skills, this workshop provides invaluable tools to support yourself and those around you on their transformative journeys.
The class is divided into two parts. First, we’ll explore practices to help you ground and center yourself- before, during, and after a session. We’ll do some embodiment practices together, learn to sense the movement of energy in your body and release anything you might take on during a session.
In the second part, we’ll explore how to hold space for a client’s process. Lots can come up when one receives bodywork, and we can guide that process through gentle invitations and inquiries. We can support the client to come into their body, listen and engage with their inner world through dialogue with sensations, emotions, thoughts and images. This can help deepen the therapeutic effect of treatment and enhance the client’s sense of well-being. You’ll get to observe live sessions as well as practice in pairs.
*Open to any massage therapist, body/energy work practitioner (or student) looking to deepen their interpersonal skills.
Tuesdays, September 26th – October 31st at 2pm – 5pm
