Date and Time

Thu, Mar 1, 2018 to Fri, Mar 2, 2018 — 9a-5p both days

At the basis of all healing and transformation is a person being deeply heard by another.
In this two day immersion, we will experience first hand the profound impact of being completely and empathically present to others and ourselves and how to integrate empathic listening (including somatic-based empathy and empathic-based inner parts exploration) in our healing work.

This highly experiential workshop includes kinesthetic and somatic learning and practices, role-play, exercises (including to practice with clients), and games. The focus is on integrating core practices with clients.

Two day intensive: March 1st- 2nd, 2018
9am-5:00, both days
