The Haptic Intelligence I
The first of a new ground-breaking series of Online Courses that explores the potential that arises when we listen to the innate intelligence of our sensory feedback systems...
Next-level Development Courses for dedicated teachers & practitioners.
A 7-week guided deep exploration of the relationship between the quality of our touch, and the body's natural responses.
Haptic Intelligence - the fundamentals:
The baseline understanding behind my work is that the body's responses, are a perfect reflection of the qualities with which we physically engage with the world about us....
The secondary understanding of this principle is that if we can explore and refine the quality of our engagement with the world, then we have the opportunity to witness the body reflecting the changes we are making. Essentially this is direct embodiment of the karmic principle - refining our natural embodied intelligence through our haptic feedback system - directly witnessing the outcome of our actions.
What to expect :
Over these 6 sessions, I will be guiding you as you explore and refine the quality of a full range of 'kinds' of supportive touch, together with developing the natural deep-core responses of a body that is free of holding patterns. This is the first principle, or condition, that will allow the body mind and breath to become united and entirely confluent in action.
Each session will begin with an introduction to the specific theme of the workshop and move into a guided physical practice. The framework will be a few specific key functional movements and yoga postures (and as a participant you can also bring other things you would like to explore to the table). There is usually between 15 and 30 minutes of Q&A, where you will find some of of your own questions might be covered, a summary of the day's principle and its application to both your practice and your life, and usually we have time for a guided deep relaxation.
Whether you are a live participant or following this course via the recordings, you can expect your body mapping to improve immensely, and you will discover surprising new connections and relationships, together with subsequent new freedoms in the spine and joints.
And as part of your course, you can claim your free 121 time with me to iron out any confusions or specific sticking points in your practice or somatic understanding... on occasion, participants give permission for a particularly enlightening 121 session to be shared with the group - these act as bonus videos for you to watch and take part in.
By the end of the course, your body will have changed, and you will have at your fingertips a whole new repertoire of 'how to' in approach to body work of any kind, either for your own practice, or for how you work with others.
