In this two hour workshop Brian will introduce the history of somatic education, the principles and learning strategies that somatics is built on. And how it is used as a personal developmental path.
After the talk there will be a somatic movement lesson and a demo of the hands on clinical work associated with this method.
Somatics is an educational system that uses movement to teach self awareness and improve function. In this method we understand the unity of mind and body is an objective and subjective reality. The mind and body are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning.
The movement lessons are so arranged so that the student can really pay attention can concentrate can learn to sense differences, to remain interested so learning and reorganisation can take place. Mechanical repetition without attention is not possible . We work with attending to the means of achieving a goal and not to the goal itself, which enables the profound changes to take place.
