COACHING THE BODY – Building our client’s capacity to respond to change
Craig O’Flaherty & Janine Everson
Date: 23 April 2016
Location: Chateau de Bogis-Bossey
Time: 9h30 – 18h00 (Registration from 8h30)
The bedrock of Integral Coaching is that change can only take place when a client has moved beyond thinking and feeling differently, into behaving differently. Behaviour is anchored in the body, so helping clients to change means building the skill that will allow them to build their own somatic skills and capacities that will underpin change in their bodies. This day is designed to be an immersion day that will leave you more skilled at integrating the client’s body, actions and behaviour into the coaching work you do.
In this Masterclass we will:
Explore a powerful model that can help you understand your client’s body. The Somatic Intelligence Scale (SIS) is an insightful way of understanding:
What are the elements of somatic awareness and capacity?
How can we work with clients to help them assess their capacity to embody the changes they are going through?
Explore how to apply this model to ourselves and make sense of the changes we need to make in our own lives
Understand the possible self-observations and practices we might use to navigate that change
Build our capability to more powerfully build the body of the client into our coaching programs
Explore a range of somatic practices that might be relevant in our ongoing work
The course will involve working with the material in an engaging way: Applying it to ourselves first, as well as to others in the room, and walking away with a practical sense of how we might use this with existing and future clients.
You will also be left with a deeper sense of how you are occupying your own body and a way forward for your own development.
