Would you like to listen more closely to your body, work more easily through blocks and triggers, and gain deeper self-connection, wisdom and insight? Somatic-Based Empathy, a practice developed by Dian Killian, PhD, blends coaching and NVC-based, deep self-empathy practices to listen closely to what our bodies are communicating to us via physical sensations. In addition to providing invaluable information and deeper, grounded wisdom, Somatic-Based Empathy can also result in relief from physical pain and discomfort and lead to new opening, release and renewed energy. Our bodies often are holding crucial information for us over years. Somatic-Based Empathy helps us communicate with our bodies in new ways, so we can deeply hear, listen and heal from our felt-sense. This practicum will include orientation (useful information for context and practice), experiential exercises to develop greater mind-body and sensory awareness, and demos and practice in Somatic-Based Empathy. Come develop a greater level of self-awareness, care and connection and explore how you can integrate these practices in your healing and NVC work, with others and yourself.
Who will this workshop interest? Anyone wanting to:
- Learn new tools for self-care and well being
- Integrate somatic awareness and mindfulness in daily practices
- Develop greater resources for self-empathy, especially when triggered, blocked or “shut down”
- Tap into deeper self-wisdom
- Take your NVC practice to a deeper level
While prior training in NVC is helpful, it is not necessary to benefit from this program.
Join us to experience new break-throughs in your life while learning practical, transformative tools you can use every day, in your own practice and in supporting others. This program will be presented in English with German translation via Simran Kaur.
