Walking the Talk: Self-Care as the Heart of Psychotherapy
with Carrie Gray, Angela Porter, Matthew Tousignant and special guest Jon Schreiber
Sunday, July 30 · 10:00 am-4:00 pm
Understanding the role of the body and the Principle of Mutual Support
In this workshop we will explore the role of the body as support for connection and presence in the practice of psychotherapy, using Breema as the foundation for a new way of being present with oneself in relationship with others.
Via somatic exercises practiced individually, with partners, and in groups, we will begin to apply Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony to build a receptive relationship between body and mind. With the experience of body-mind connection as a place of reference, the afternoon will offer time for in-depth exploration and discussion of specific topics such as boundaries, vicarious trauma, countertransference, and compassion fatigue.
Breema Bodywork®, Self-Breema Exercises®, and The Nine Principles of Harmony are natural expressions of the unifying principle of Existence. They offer a practical means of becoming present, a commonsense approach to physical, mental, and emotional health, and a new way of learning that leads to increased understanding of ourselves and a deepening sense of fulfillment, meaning, and purpose.
No prior experience necessary, please come in
comfortable clothing prepared to move around on a padded floor.
