Experiment with Three Somatic Practices 

Description of Webinar

The Power of Somatic's in Coaching has become evident in the study of the body/brain science and its impact on learning. Coaching is about supporting our clients in learning… experiencing a new awareness or seeing a new possibility. Learning begins in the body with making meaning of the sensations we feel and then express in thoughts and words. In this session we will experiment with 3 somatic practices that serve the coach and that might be offered to a client. We will explore the difference it makes to bring coherence among the body, emotions, and language around something that is getting in the way of the realization of a goal. We will explore ideas of how to use somatics within ourselves (the coach) to observe how the client is being around what he brings to coaching… and thus allow the client to make a new meaning… a new awareness… a new possibility to realize a goal.

What you will learn:

  • Experiment with Three Somatic Practices; Balancing the Body, Emotions, and Language; Shifting Emotions by Choice, and Using a Body Scan. 
  • Share stories/examples demonstrating how somatics serves clients (presenter & participants) 
  • Discuss some Body/Brain Science in how somatics supports learning. 
  • Share a bibliography that supports the use of somatics in coaching.
