In this day and age many people struggle with the idea of identity, we wear so many masks and play so many roles for others in our lives that when left alone with just ourselves we seldom know who we are anymore, what we think, how we feel or indeed what we want!
If you have struggled with any of these concepts then our Mind Body and Identity seminar is for you. Working in both large and small groups we will begin by building safe boundaries within which to explore these concepts, we use psychodrama to enact real life situations to better see how we are interacting with the world around us, how often we deny our true thoughts and feelings in deference to someone else’s, without really checking whether this is even true let alone helpful. As a result we feel powerless, burdened and unappreciated. The seminar is about exploring how to be your true authentic self, recognising that you have every right to feel what you feel – regardless of someone else’s judgement. You have the right to your own opinion even if it differs from those you love. You have a right to be You – even if it displeases someone else.
These can be very difficult challenges to face, it can feel scary and disloyal, like we are doing something wrong or bad, but living a life that is not true to the self is one of the biggest regrets people have in later life. There is a way out of this pattern and it is never as destructive as we fear it will be – in fact the benefits so outweigh any short term discomforts that we are usually left wondering why it took us so long to take the step into self!
Please come and join us at Abington Barn on May 21/22 and give yourself the gift of being your true self.
2 days of practical and theoretical experience in the fascinating sphere of the mind body connection - also known scientifically as psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) You will have the opportunity to explore your own mind body relationships in both small and larger groups in a safe, trusting, mutually supportive environment.
You will also get the opportunity to see mind body therapy in action in the form of psychodrama, focusing on volunteers presenting their issues and then having them acted out using other audience members as 'actors' to enable insight to make workable changes.
This seminar is open access and will appeal to anyone interested in the mind body connection and how that awareness can improve their own health. It is also aimed at those already working in the mental healthcare field who might be interested in expanding into the field of Mind Body Therapy. You will learnpractical skills that can be immediately integrated into your existing practice.
The seminar will be led by Angela Lattimore and Prof Jure Biechonski.
