WALKING-IN-YOUR-SHOES® (WIYS Embodiment Technique) is called by therapists and business leaders "the future of coaching.” It combines mindfulness, movement, neuroscience and depth psychology like no other transformational process. Get empowered and take yourself to your highest level!

This is a cutting-edge tool For psychologists, therapists, life coaches, mediators, business leaders, artists, and health care practitioners. This 4-Module training will gve you the foundation for WIYS faciliatation and practice.

WALKING-IN-YOUR-SHOES® is a powerful and highly effective sensorimotor processing technique used to access hidden information, transform obstacles, and gain personal empowerment for your life (Journal of Humanistic Psychology,1993). By tuning into the body's intuitive wisdom, WIYS helps you gain deeper understanding about any issue such as a family member, ancestor, relationship, colleague, animal, illness, business project, or personal subject, with safety and compassion. WIYS increases empathic awareness through movement leading to increased empathy, mindfulness, and somatic resourcing. This process developed in the late 1980s by psychologist John Cogswell PhD and actor/director Joseph Culp can effectively bring transformation and clarity to issues surrounding:

Family Sytems - Romantic Relationships - Ancestors - Your Inner Critic - Optimal Attachment - Money & Success - Law of Attraction - Health, Illness & Recovery - Business & Work - Creative Arts - Trauma Processing & Healing

HOW IS WALKING-IN-YOUR-SHOES® DONE? In a group setting, under the guidance of a WIYS® facilitator, the Walker tunes into the wisdom of the body through movement, describing in detail—both physically and verbally—the insights he/she intuitively receives. Walking allows you to break out of limiting “self-concepts,” move into the deeper natures of love, acceptance, and compassion as well as de-mystify and develop your own intuitive ability. The Walker can explore the inner experience, life themes and core issues of any person or subject. This groundbreaking technique is widely used by psychologists, therapists, life coaches, mediators, business leaders, artists and performers, and health care practitioners all over the world. WIYS Institutes are currently located in U.S., Germany and The Netherlands.
