Especially as we're growing up, we humans internalize beliefs & messages from the culture and the thousands of daily transactions that take place in schools, family, work, friendships, organizations, and community.
As young people, we strive to be accepted, safe, and to find places and people with whom we belong. We shape ourselves to fit in -- and often, once we have arrived in adulthood, these shapes, beliefs, and messages remain. Some of these beliefs, messages and shapes support us, and some limit us.
What is Skills for Change Bodywork?
Based on the theoretical concepts of Radical Therapy, the embodied practices of Skills for Change Coaching and Bodywork help to normalize your experience in a social context, understand and reframe your situation to allow you the greatest choice and power available, and strategize problem-solving and community solutions that provide clarity and engage support so that you can take new actions.
Skills for Change Bodywork includes de-armoring bodywork, skills building practices, conversation and homework, and generates an understanding of how systemic power impacts the body. We'll engage a combination of standing practices, reflection, conversation, and bodywork to open and release historic patterns that limit your clients’ expression and possibility.
