From infancy through old age, we thrive on connection, created in large part by the quality and intent of our communication. The poet David Whyte invites us to “Put down the weight of your own aloneness and ease into the conversation.” The nourishing communication workshop is an invitation to explore and perhaps adjust our habitual ways of offering and receiving communication.
Nourishing communication fills us up and sustains us. Feeling deeply seen and accepted is a foundational need, knowing that we also strive to give that experience to others. This workshop will include recent research on the brain and attachment theory.
What to expect
The workshop is held in a private residence in a quiet neighborhood and is taught by Hakomi certified teachers. 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 available and offer direction and feedback in a manner consistent with Hakomi principles.
