The Healing Presence Course
Open to all persons and is the first part in the Arts of Therapy & Healing course. Healing presence is a human quality which exists in all of us and which can become a refined art form through training. It is measured by the persons's ability to "conduct" energy (from the word "conductivity") and host a variety of feelings which the other person finds it difficult to consciously experience. In this way, a healing space is formed naturally characterized by pure acceptance clean from interpretations, clean from judgements and even expectations, accompanied by a compassionate mirroring capability which doesn't compromise on the truth. In this course we will define, refine, experience and train ourselves to develop and cultivate this human quality so that it can empower us and help us to facilitate healing for others.
Course Format: 2 meetings 5 hrs each.
