This Weekend workshop offers a more detailed exploration of this topic which has been offered at the OCM annual conference for Coaches and mentors for the last three years.
The aim of this Weekend workshop is to introduce traditional Chinese approaches to the body-mind continuum and how to optimally navigate complex human interactions from this perspective. It is designed specifically for Mentors and Coaches to help them to continue developing the skills they already have for working with clients as effectively as possible.
The workshop will involve practicing a mixture of sitting, standing and moving exercises both solo and partnered to help attendees:
- Recognise and work with the interconnected nature of posture, breath and intention
- Develop a clearer and calmer body-mind
- Increase their physical and energetic stability
- Increase their physical and energetic sensitivity
- Recognise when you have patterned off clients and learn how to return to your own baseline after a session or at the end of the day.
The course will run in a similar fashion to the sessions offered at the OCM annual conference. This means that the first day stands on its own and the second day will build upon and deepen the foundations developed on the first day.
