16-17 juni 2017: Becoming a better listener in difficult situations: workshop met Olivier Gourmet

  Becoming a better listener in difficult situations

Concepts from Aikido applied to Focusing

 Would you like:

  • To feel more confident in your body when you have to listen to difficult stories?
  • To be able to respond more gracefully when you receive a critic or a negative feed-back?
  • To feel more whole and be able to take better care of yourself?

If yes, then, we have a workshop for you!

Program: The program of the two days workshop is the following:

Day 1:

  • Discover about mind-body coordination and a strength you didn’t know you possessed when your mind is working in a unified way with your body
  • Understand your natural reactions when you feel challenged or under pressure and why those might not work the best way for you
  • Sense how a ‘physical centered posture’, as taught in Aikido, enables you to become a better listener for yourself and others
  • Learn how to “center” in 4 steps

Day 2:

  • Discover about your boundaries and how this is helping in difficult situations with self and others
  • Learn how to say NO respectfully without becoming aggressive
  • Get how to re-center under pressure
  • Learn how to listen without taking things personally, particularly when under critic
