About the webinar

Have you noticed any of your own movements closely in day to day life? From a simple turning of your head in a specific way to swaying of your hand? We can try playfully to imitate others but no movements from one person to another is similar. Our movements are connected to our psyche. We are integrated at physical, mental, emotional and social aspects. Change in one impacts the other. In somatic interventions, the change is from/through body & movement, to other aspects.

Among multiple intelligences that we have, the most essential yet forgotten is the body wisdom. As a Consultant in the client system there might be numerous occasions our body has indicated information which we might have listened to but ignored. Our own body image and movement creates significant impact in the client system. In order to use this intelligence, we need to know and listen to our body wisdom and utilize it. This is not to interpret others but to listen to our own self.  

In our session, we will focus on certain aspects in our own movements and the behavior we hold to deepen our awareness to somatic wisdom. We might get in touch with new insights about our own self which can bring in new perspectives about self and others. It is going to be fun and playful too! 

Let the embodied OD unleash a little more of ourselves to further enhance and use “self” as an instrument of change”.

This webinar will be free for IODA members to attend and $25 for non-members.
