Part of WMHCA's Lunch and Learn Series: Connectivity and Community
What is needed to feel seen and heard so that we can connect with self and others is to be Present as another living human being. Presence is a state of being that is calm, curious, and welcoming without judgement of our present moment experience. This workshop will lead participants through brief, yet powerful exercises designed to become embodied, present and connected.
- Experience embodiment through present moment sensation in the body.
- Understand the difference between physical embodiment and our inner sensing body.
- Learn how to come into presence with any situation by using Presence Language.
- Teach embodiment, Presence and befriending experience.
