|Working with the Body: Accessing Unconscious Potential|
Facilitator: Claudius Kokott
This workshop is based on the fundamental insight of body psychotherapy that psychological experiences, from traumatic to happy ones, have a corresponding expression in our physical body. I will introduce a way of working with the body that could help to expand our understanding of therapeutic work as practitioners.
Involuntary movements from within the body, emotional discharge, ‘frozen’ or held body parts etc. are clear indications and of vital importance for the client to gain a better knowledge of themselves. We will focus on the breathing pattern as much as on body movement or absence of movement.
Another main point will be the physical expression of resistance in therapy, because the holding patterns and the emotional fear/anger/frozenness that go with resistance often get in the way towards a better life for the client.
The work is informed by an understanding of the principles of life forces in the body that can bring us closer to our essence. Tuning in to inner sensations and feelings enables a deepening of contact to ourselves and to others.
This weekend course is designed to help you acquaint yourself with these ideas in an experiential way. It is suitable for psychotherapists and counsellors who have a curiosity about their own as well as about their client’s inner life.
