Experiential Workshop for Psychotherapists and Counsellors.
When making choices and choosing direction in life we are facing the challenge of how to balance information available from different parts of our being.
Explicit goals can be made based on conscious knowledge, datacollection, logical reasoning – primarily guided by left hemisphere brain-functions – the cognitive brain.
Implicit goals emerge from the emotional part of our being – guided by deeply embedded and automatic motor impulses and hedonistic valencing leading to patterns of attraction and aversion. These impulses and patterns are wired in the emotional brain.
when these 2 parts of our being and our goaldirection cooperate, it supports us in making choices that we can sustain – and in feeling whole.
When they don’t cooperate we often experience self-sabotage – we may decide something but don’t follow it through – we can’t seem to reach a decision etc.
In this experiential workshop the focus will be on:
- Psychomotor skill training that supports ownership of the motivational drives of attraction and aversion.
- Exploring and understanding the deeply embedded impulses in attraction and aversion.
- Training the observing self capacity to hold the polarity between explicit and implicit goals.
- Playing with breaking habitual patterns and trying out new possibilities.
Date: Friday 21 October, Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 October 2016
