Communication - Upcoming Classes

Class Name

Our bodies can be a source of wonderful pleasure as well as discomfort and pain. If we know how to communicate with them, our bodies can also be sources of informaiton that reveal the mystery of life. Often our most challenging physical problems and health issues contain the greatest wisdom that can lead to enhanced well‐being and provide direction on how to live our lives. This class is based on Processwork, an awareness‐based mind/body system developed by Arnold Mindell with foundations in Jungian psychology, shamanism, and Taoism. We will explore how to access informaiton contained in our physical symptoms and use them as doorways into ourselves. We will also look at the relationship between nightime dreams and body symptoms. Herb is a yoga instructor, herbalist, and has a master's degree in Process‐oriented Facilitation.
