Brighton: Water and Fire embodiment masterclass – with Martha Eddy and Mark Walsh
Fire and water – polarity and excellence in embodied facilitation
– A workshop for seasoned professionals
Join two very different experienced embodied facilitators who have a combined 60 years of experience, in 50+ countries, to enhance your own skill as a trainer, coach or movement facilitator. Learn how somatic awareness and embodiment can be subtle or direct, sweet or purposefully disruptive, soft or firm. Be challenged to grow your range personally and professionally. Move into the depths of your personal style, and learn clues for when to work with your fierceness, and when to call on your vulnerability. Join us for this unique dynamic offering.
What we’ll cover
– Yin, yang as a facilitator and how to move gracefully between them
– How to find resourcing traits within us for both stepping forward and receding appropriately, sensitising to when to do what with whom
– The 13 criteria of excellence that Mark’s developed though 8 years of The Embodied Facilitator Course
– “From good to great” – what we’ve learnt form working with hundreds of master trainers
– What doesn’t work cross-culturally
– Using language effectively (aka “unicorn killing”)
– From tricks and tools, to depth and creativity – the upper reaches of embodied facilitation
– How to translate meaningful somatic work to both business and social change environments
Note: this course is not fo beginners and all attending should have facilitation experienced and experience with embodiment coaching/leadership or movement arts (yoga, dance, martial arts, etc). We will hit the ground running and delve deeply. We will however send some pre-course materials out to help newer people to the work. Message us if you’re not sure
