Tel Aviv – Embodied Peacebuilding Workshop – 19th July

Peace starts at home in the body. Many good verbal approaches to peacebuilding are undermined by the physiological “fight or flight” response but happily there are tool for managing this. Trust, relationship, emotions and listening also happen though the body yet this area is usually ignored in our cerebral world. This practical experiential workshop teaches enjoyable methods of using the body in peacebuilding. Developed from aikido and other embodied practices by Dr Paul Linden and Mark Walsh it is being taught for the first time in Israel this week. Come if you’d like:

–  a deeper understanding as why the body is vital for peace

–  tools for building trust and relationship with movement and touch

–  “centering” techniques to manage the fight or flight response

–  embodied listening techniques

–  exercises and games to teach embodied peacebuilding yourself

Who this workshop is for

Anyone interested in peace may come but we are specifically aiming the day for people who already work with others:

–  teachers

–  facilitators

–  trainers

–  coaches

–  therapists
