Spring Body Mapping Intensive – March 2020
14th & 15th Mar\ch 2020, 10am-5.30pm Sat & Sun, in Bath
NURTURING NEW LIFE WITHIN
For women only
BODY MAPPING is a creative therapeutic process that allows you to feel into and creatively communicate how you are living in your body right now. It involves creating a life-size representation of your body on canvas and using images, symbols, objects/natural materials and words to map out different living places in you: Places that are full of life, places that pain, and places that hold hope and potential for the future. In the process of creating the body map you will discover new links between these places in you and gain a deeper understanding of your own power to create health within you and through your way of living in this world.
This SPRING INTENSIVE is designed for women only and takes place in an intimate and confidential group setting. The small size of the group makes it possible for each woman to fully take her place and space whilst being safely held and accompanied on her unique journey. The focus will be on nurturing the new life that you as woman can bring into this world.
The Intensive interweaves drawing, painting and sculpting with body meditations, ritual and heart-felt speaking. No previous skills in art making are required. Gentle care and sensitive attention is given to the small and big things that move us. I also hold with warmth and confidence those experiences that are stored with pain or lack of feeling in your body.
As somatic body mapping follows a process of creatively conceiving and coming into human form we will also be working with the subtle resonances of your prenatal and birth experiences. This might touch places in you that feel vulnerable yet, as they are safely processed, can lead to new healing experiences.
The weekend intensive allows for the inner landscape of your body to become more visible, more accessible and more meaningful. It enables you to gain a new perspective on old habits and difficulties, make new choices, deeply appreciate your creative power, and to follow what wants to grow.
If you are a psychotherapist or counsellor, completion of this Intensive also allows you to apply for the yearlong Somatic Body Mapping Mentorship starting in Jan/Feb 2020.
WORKSHOP FEE: £230 (£100 deposit), inclusive of art materials and coffee break. Please bring your own lunch or use one of the cafes along Walcott Street.
