Facilitator: Christine Caldwell of Naropa University, Colorado

A new workshop in our CPD series.

Christine Caldwell

This course will introduce the participant to a movement-based form of Body Psychotherapy called the Moving Cycle. Developed by Christine Caldwell, this method operates via the present moment, experiential processing of sensations, emotions, spontaneous actions, breathing rhythms, and attentional states in order to uncouple from patterns of living that no longer work well. Participants will experientially learn how to use high quality attention to their own and the client’s body, without judgment or analysis. Next they will practice observing and foregrounding small sensorimotor processes in themselves and their clients as a way to enter into the somatic unconscious and to follow its movement narratives as a means of increasing the client’s trust in their inner impulses. Lastly, participants will experiment with relational movements that assist in creating a coherent and integrating experience for the client, experiences that allow the client to practice their body narratives in the holding environment of a secure body-to-body relationship with the therapist. The first day will involve instruction, demonstration and practice, and day two will involve breaking up into small practice groups in order to maximize peer and instructor supervision. This course is a pre-requisite for the Moving Cycle training, should participants want to learn more.
