a Seishindo Embodied Presence Workshop with Charlie Badenhop and Marleen Adriaensen Belgium, 20-21 March 2009
Stress-management for coaches, consultants, and leaders
Stress is everywhere these days. You can feel it, hear it, and see it. In such uncertain times, what will your choice of action be? Wait around until “the economy” gets better? Or will you consider taking action for yourself, and explore ways to further develop your calm and confidence, your creativity and professional skills? Stress may be one of the greatest challenges of our time, but if you coach or lead others, stress is also one of the greatest opportunities you’ll ever be offered. You have the chance to make a real difference in your clients’ lives.
Remaining calm and confident in times of stress
Instead of attempting to fight against the ravages of stress, you can learn how to link the intelligence of your rational mind with the wisdom of your body and discover you have all the resources you need to manage your own stress, and encourage others to do the same.
This workshop is experiential, practical, and immediately applicable.
What you will learn draws upon the perspectives, practices, and disciplines of both Western and Eastern models of health and well-being. Aikido, NLP, Ericksonian Hypnosis, the Japanese healing art of Sei Tai, and Yoga. In this workshop we weave together theory, poetry, music, practical applications and fun. You’ll learn how to think with your body and your heart, as well as with your intellect.
“Where do you live? When I ask this question, almost everyone describes their home or their local area…. To me, that’s not where you live; where you live is in your body. How you live there, how comfortable you are in living at home, will teach me a powerful message about you.” (quote from ‘Life’s a pitch’ by G. Haslam).
The way you use your body, breathe, and move, has a major impact on how you feel and react to challenges. Understanding the subtle yet powerful communication of body language, allows you to stress less and relax more! The key is to link the intelligence of your rational mind with the wisdom of your body. Step One: Uncover the behaviours, thought patterns, and body language that lead to stress and re- activity, and those that lead to inner calm and confidence. Step Two: Engage in mind-body practices to better manage your emotional tone and sense of health and well-being. Step Three: Clarify how you can take responsibility for creating an embodied presence that engenders greater calm, confidence, and creativity in times of uncertainty and stress. Achieve a sense of well-being in both your personal and professional life.
