We express ourselves without speaking, understand others without having heard a word. Bringing attention to this subtle but constant nonverbal exchange between parent and child, teacher and student, friends, partners in love, work, play, offers clarity and is key to honest communication. Daniel Goleman says, “Ninety percent of emotional information is communicated non verbally.”
Workshop participants learn the practice of attending to nonverbal cues, focusing on facial expression, posture, bearing, gesture, and more. And by working with partners, they learn their own nonverbal cues. This awareness of nonverbal communication develops attunement and sensitivity in all types of relationships, and is especially helpful in bringing attention to the connection between body and mind.
This workshop will focus your awareness, kindly and patiently, on what and how we communicate without words.
The workshop is comprised of short presentations alternating with exercises (done solo, one-on-one, or as a group), and is presented in a step-by-step format, allowing plenty of time to take in the material. Hakomi certified teachers are present during each session and offer direction and feedback in a manner consistent with Hakomi.
Teachers and trainers at this event are: Lynn Morrison, MA, CHT, and Dennis Gaither, MD, OMC; Hakomi therapists and senior trainers, and Stacy Lewis, CHT, LMHCA, certified Hakomi therapist, teacher and licensed mental health counselor associate.
Bring a notebook and pen if you like to take notes and a sack lunch (unless you prefer to go out). The lunch break is 60 – 90 hours.
You’ll take home a new practice, heightened awareness, an expanded skill set, and access to a sense of deep relaxation.
