Uniting Thought and Action
Thought and action cannot be separated from one another, i.e. a person’s movements reflect their thinking and visa versa. A real change in thinking will be reflected in movement. If a new idea or solution (thinking) is to take hold, then there must be corollary change in action (movement). This holds true for the client as well as the coach. In this workshop, you will experience how your own actions can influence your thinking, enabling you to work more effectively as a coach by better observing the signals coming from your client. Additionally, you will become more aware of your own actions and how to sense them while still focusing on your client.
Sf and the Feldenkrais Method are both solution-based approaches to changing thinking and action. By experiencing these two methods, we will be able to explore the connection between thought and action. Practical exercises in coaching and movement awareness will blend together to create a new understanding of how action and thought influence and support each other.
This workshop was taught by Stephanie von Bidder and me. Since we will be doing more of this work, we're looking forward to exchanging ideas.
