Movement Resources for Reflective Practice
Wednesday, 25th January 2017, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm UCLAN, Preston.
Fee: £30 (£25 UCLan Graduates) Book here.
Open to all dancers, movement practitioners, bodyworkers, therapists, and those with an interest in how our bodies and movement support our work in the field of health and wellbeing.
How do you reflect on the work you do?
How do you process what happens in the sessions you run?
And what resources do you draw on that helps you keep going?
In this experiential workshop Paul will share some of the techniques and practices that he uses to sustain his work as a Somatic Movement Therapist. He’ll guide you through reflecting on your own work with others, to identify themes and resources to take back, to feed you as a practitioner.
He’ll share some of the key principles he uses embodiment, presence, soft focus & wide view, foreground & horizon, and how often what challenges us the most in our work can give us the next step forward. He’ll share and guide participants in focusing on how we sustain what we love about what we do – keeping the heart of our work alive.
Paul is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist who trained in the US and UK and has been working in the field of movement and well-being for the last 20 years.

The workshop will include movement, play and shared discussion. It is suitable for dancers, movement practitioners, bodyworkers, therapists, and those with an interest in how our bodies and movement support our work in the field of health and wellbeing.
