Session S3: Embodiment Practices and EMDR Therapy

Saturday, April 20th


About the Session

Discover the power of embodiment practices in this immersive workshop designed to enhance your therapeutic techniques and personal growth. Embodiment practices encompass a range of techniques that focus on the mind-body connection through self-awareness, mindfulness, and body-based approaches. Learn how to create synchronicity between the mind and body for healing, emotional wellness, and peace of mind. Dive deep into mind-body approaches, exploring the latest research and opportunities for integrating embodiment practices into EMDR therapy. We will examine the rich cultural heritage of these practices and explore specific techniques that support trauma healing. You will leave with a toolkit of techniques and insights drawn from yogic, Buddhist, and somatic-based approaches, ready to apply in your work with clients and on your personal growth journey. Unlock the healing power of embodiment practices.
