About the Workshop: Using “Body Knows® Methodology”, Veronica and Sandra have developed an amazing and powerful style of assisting others in boosting their personal resources to not only improve work performance but also access a deeper inner sense of well-being. Their unique approach is based on their years of successfully assisting others in this arena, solid theoretical resources, and cutting edge research pertaining to what actually helps adults develop and evolve. Implications of studies in this field suggest that the most direct path to repattern the mind for enhanced thriving might not be through the head, but through the body.
What does the body have to do with on-the-job performance?
Learning is a complex process that involves cognitive, emotional and bodily aspects of the self. In order for learning to translate into new actions, it is critical to integrate the body into the learning process, for it is the body that enables us to perform those actions. The Body Knows® Methodology fosters the discovery of our authentic self and contributes to restore our energy through processes of self awareness, self expression and self possession (Alexander Lowen, 1995). By boosting personal resources, we are enabled to develop and embody what we need to face challenges and real with interpersonal conflicts, to hold effective conversations, build collaborative relationships and find greater balance in our life.
The components of this workshop include assisting each individual participant with:
Grounding in reality: In the face of adversity, it is easy to lose our own sense of self: our emotions overwhelm us, leading to automatic, and ineffective, reactions. We either try to ignore reality, escape from it or aggressively defend ourselves from it. In this first session you will learn to ground your body in order to face life´s challenges with greater strength and mindfulness, expanding your body’s ability to support a wider emotional range. Furthermore, learning to ground gives your personal stance an embodied, and integral, meaning.
Negotiating relationships: Relationships are reciprocal exchanges that put our personal resources to the test. In many cases, we handle those exchanges inadequately. On one end of the spectrum is the trouble to say “no”, even when we know that we our compromising our time, energy, and sometimes even our values. On the other end, is the incapacity to become closer to people we care about, or that may be critical to our performance or well being. Learning to negotiate relationships is easier when we bring the body into the process, for it is through the body that we step in, reach out and connect.
Speaking up: Expressing ourselves with the adequate level of energy at the right time is key to hold a courageous and honest conversation. Our body needs to integrate both the strength to speak up and the sensibility to listen. The voice is the tool we work with in this session, along with the emotional openness to listen.
Challenging fear: One of the main obstacles for decision making and risk taking is fear, a strong and complex emotion that restrains our body and entraps us emotionally. Each person has her own fears: fear of failure, fear of uncertainty, fear of losing control, etc. Finding and strengthening our mind and body resources to reveal and face our fears is the first step to overcome them, and ultimately become more audacious.
Building reality: Learning is evidenced-based through our capacity to modify and broaden our actions. To close the program, you will translate the new embodied resources into actions and connections that give deeper meaning to your life. You will also embody one last resource: the ability to let go, which will enable you to worry less and do more
