Event description

Description

In this workshop, Tracy Broyles, Core Energetics practitioner, Ira Karon, LPC and Luke Gutgsell, LMT will support the development of self care and boundaries for activists and concerned citizens struggling to find peace in our troubled times.

What to expect:

From Ira Karon:

Taking care of ourselves and each other is essential for our collective well being. In this workshop, we will build an understanding of self-care as a form of self-power and political resistance. Based in research around resiliency we will expand our definition of self-care to include the resources already inherent in our bodies, identities, relationships and communities. We will explore these themes through group process, dialogue and experiential activities.

From Tracy Broyles:

Using the body as a tool for exploration, we will engage our boundaries and edges. Exercises will start with individual physical and energetic awareness buiding, then move toward pairs and small groups. Curiosity is all that is needed as we practice using our whole selves to learn about how we interact with and within the world.



From Luke Gutgsell:

We each have the ability to bring healing into our life and the lives of others. Working in pairs we will focus our attention to our ever shifting relationship with gravity and breath. A safe container will be created where we can give and receive healing touch. We will experience deep relaxation and enjoy the sensation of being gently compressed, stirred and jostled.


TRACY BROYLES believes that deep transformative healing occurs where body and consciousness meet. How present we are determines how fully we can access our own healing energy. Tracy actively explores how mind and emotion impact the physical during Core Energetics sessions. Tracy is a certified Pilates instructor and will soon complete her three-year training to become a Core Energetics counselor. She has received first and second-degree Reiki attunements, and holds a BA in Dance. portlandhealingspace.com
