Feelings are embodied processes that are experienced, expressed and communicated through our body and movement patterns. Addressing emotion on a non-verbal level can augment therapeutic healing and growth and is essential to the clinical process of integration and change. This experiential workshop will explore how the body and movement can be safely and appropriately used to access and work with the client’s emotions. It will also provide opportunities to learn and practice simple and practical tools for working with emotions for various ages, issues and contexts. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of physical ability.
