Join us for a weekend Journey of learning, laughter, and personal exploration as we learn the practice of Nourishing Communication!
In this weekend workshop, you will learn the art of offering and receiving emotional nourishment in a manner that is sincere, timely, and appropriate. You will also explore your own habitual responses (conscious or unconscious) to giving and receiving emotional nourishment, providing you with understandings that are so valuable in your personal and professional life.
Presenters: Dennis Gaither and Lynn Morrison, certified Hakomi therapists, teachers and trainers, with Roxanne Peterson, certified Hakomi therapist and teacher, and Trish Christean, certified Hakomi therapist and teacher-in-training.
Workshop Tuition: $195, pre-registration required
As workshop size is intentionally kept small, early registration is strongly advised to guarantee a place.
Workshop is 9:30-5:00pm both days.
Hakomi, created by Ron Kurtz, is a type of "assisted self-study" that is both professionally very useful and personally transformative. The work is based on universal spiritual principles: mindfulness, unity, organicity, nonviolence, mind-body holism, and loving presence.
These workshops are accredited for 12 CEU's for Licensed Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Massage Practitioners.
