The Facilitative Trainer / TeacherOn this course, you will learn a range of skills and tools that enable you to become a masterful teacher in your own specialist field of expertise.
An intrinsic part of the work we do is embodiment work, that is, learning to use the wisdom of the body. If we study the body’s pattern of stress responses of flight, flight and freeze, we can recognise the beginnings of stress before it gains a full hold and learn to apply a simple technique that restores us to a more centred and resourceful state of mind and body. This enables us to build resilience by adjusting our responses to everyday situations that may have caught us out in the past.
