Three Different Types of Embodied Self – Awareness
With Senior Teacher Alan Fogel
April 21st @ 10:30am PST / 19.30h CEST
Alan was asked by the Rosen Institute to present two webinars based on his recent articles in the Rosen Method International Journal . This first webinar will be devoted to a discussion about the first article, Three States of Embodied Self-Awareness in Rosen Method Bodywork: Part 1: Practitioner Observations of their Clients.
These articles are based on written notes made by three experienced Rosen Method Bodywork practitioners who were paid by a research grant to write for one hour at the completion of a series of bodywork sessions on the same client that occurred over a 5-month period.
These practitioners wrote about what they observed in their clients and about their own experiences when with the clients. Alan’s study of these writings led to the discovery of three different ways in which clients and practitioners experienced their embodied awareness and the changes between the states of Embodied Self-Awareness that occurred during each session. These articles can provide guidance for how we can expand our ability to be fully present with our clients and with ourselves.
Alan will begin the webinar with a summary of the most important findings of each article. The majority of the webinar will be for participant questions (1) about the content of the articles, (2) about participants’ personal reactions to that content, and (3) about general applications to the practice of RMB or about how to work with specific clients. All are welcome to attend.
