Engaged Resilience Training
Presents a somatic approach to human relationship. This includes relationship with other forms of life and life as a whole, as well as other human beings. It will invite you to a deep, embodied solidarity with the world just as it is, even as it continuously changes. It does so by taking you deep into the inclusive and generous presence of wholeness, both alone and in relationship to others. We will use Somatic Retuning, Intuning and Attunement to access the abundant and invulnerable heart of wholeness from which authentic compassion, generosity and solidarity flow. This will enable you to prioritise giving over getting, creating over consuming, sharing over accumulating. Then you can become more able to live harmoniously with others in this turbulent world. This training will involve safe, simple and non-sexual interaction with others.
