The last in our current series of workshops
Workshop 14 – April 25th, 2020
Facilitated by: Jim FitzGibbon
“If we can find the words there’s a chance we can find a way”. The words of the Irish poet, Seamus Heaney.
You are invited to join Jim and you’ll reflect on finding words for present experience.
In this workshop, this group will support authenticity of expression of:
Present internal experience
External experience and meaning-making.
Further support for reorienting is explored through movements that are loosely based on a Native American wheel.
We will discuss: “About being without words…A pre-text to abuse is a belief in the culture that it (sex, mental health, trauma) will NOT be spoken about”.
We will explore how in the therapeutic relationship and in supervision, being present in solidarity with the suffering of the other, relief from shame and suffering emerges.
