Advanced embodiment facilitation – with Mark Walsh
In this workshop I will assume you know the basics of embodied intelligence, are an experienced coach or trainer and have worked with me before. We will go from there and explore:
● The deeper principles of embodied facilitation
● Creativity and making your own techniques
● Common mistakes
● Cultural variables
● A deeper look at ethics
● Trauma’s impact
● The future of embodiment
There will be coaching demos and plenty of chance to ask questions.
Why should I listen to you?
Seriously? This is my thing.
Maybe you shouldn’t, I’m not everyone’s cup of crack. I am however a decent trauma educator having had a long apprenticeship under Paul Linden. Aside from my own trauma background in areas of conflict I also have experience teaching many NGO’s (e.g. Save The Children, Oxfam, Warchild), militaries (e.g in Ukraine and Sierra Leone) and even leading a trauma education briefing in The House of Lords…which impressed my mum. My style is excellent for the robust with a sense of humour, and a nightmare for the “woke” offended.
Requirement: Participants should have attended one of our beginners workshops or watch this video.

“Not the type of course that comes in a folder to collect dust on your desk. I found the content real, accessible, and I was able to put it to practical use immediately.” – Kathryn Knock, Coach, Norfolk, UK
“These workshops connect your body to your mind and help to complete a soul circuit. Plug yourself in and enjoy more powerful coaching and facilitation.” – Antony Parry, coach and CTI coach trainer, Chichester UK
“It is nothing else but amazing how much I learned about embodiment in only a day and a half with Mark and Carol in Berlin. Our bodies talk to us. All of the time. They hold the treasures of untold stories for our success and fulfilment. They demonstrate where our minds make up stories of failure and limitations. They, as an integral part of us, are the foundation for connection. Our bodies talk to us. We’d better start and listen to them.” – Geert Hofman, coach, musician and author, Germany
“My participation enhanced my ability to talk about embodiment work, helped me gain confidence bringing this work to new audiences, and provided a very rich peer group experience that result in professional friendships” – Charlie Birch – professional dancer, Boulder, USA
“I now do in one session what I used to do in six” – Coach and coach trainer, Tel Aviv, Israel
“If you’re looking for training that will challenge and provoke you to learn about yourself in profound and surprising ways, then I highly recommend Mark as a trainer. He is funny, provocative, committed and cheeky. Above all, though, he really knows his stuff, and he lives and walks his talk.” – Aboodi Shabi, Executive Coach and Facilitator, Newfield coach trainer, London UK
