Embodying Self as Foundation for Touch
Saturday 6th April ’24 10-4pm @ The Gas Works, Bristol BS2
‘To touch and be touched is our deepest human need’.
To touch and be touched is our deepest human need and fundamental to embodiment; to be well met in touch we want to be anchored in an embodied sense of self. How can we re-learn to embody ourselves and meet others within a touch deprived culture?
Touch Presence is a day-long experiential workshop in which we will explore our embodied senses as the foundation for relational clothed contact with another.
Relating with touch requires qualities of presence: listening, compassion, curiosity and care for individuals and group. We will begin the day with ourselves; through focus on inner sensing, movement, sound and self touch, you will be guided in deepening connection with your own body mind experiences.
Beginning with self is the bridge into contact with other; moving into structured clothed partner practises the focus will be on embodied presence and awareness enabling each to be clear, connected and choiceful as touch is offered and received. Our intention and practices will encourage heartfulness, spaciousness, enquiry and reflective time with self and others.
Touch Presence is a workshop is for adults wanting to express and give through touch in their relationships or work, practitioners who work with touch, therapists who want to incorporate touch into their work.
