A solstice is an astronomical event that occurs twice each year as the Sun reaches its highest or lowest excursion relative to the celestial equator on the celestial sphere. As a result, on the day of the solstice, the Sun appears to have reached its highest or lowest annual altitude in the sky above the horizon at local solar noon. The solstices, together with the equinoxes, are connected with the seasons. In many cultures the solstices mark either the beginning or the midpoint of winter and summer.

Invitation to Awareness

A personal development workshop

  • Do you work in a caring profession where communication and relationship skills are important?
  • Are you considering becoming a counsellor?
  • Do you want to improve your personal relationships?
  • Would you like to explore, expand and deepen your awareness?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, this workshop is for you. Gestalt is an experiential approach which invites each of us into awareness and personal ‘response-ability’.

Feldenkrais Self- Awareness, Self -Care and Early Life Attachment History Workshop

This experiential workshop is for psychotherapists, counsellors, counselling psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals (students attending personal therapy are welcome) and will allow participants to touch into their attachment history held in implicit or procedural memory in the body.

It is led by Anne McGuinness, Feldenkrais Practitioner and Psychotherapist, and has grown out of Anne’s many years of interest and experience in the field of attachment and early life relationships and the use of a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement approach to safely access the residues of attachment history held in the body. It has grown also out of Anne’s personal experience and belief that Feldenkrais offers practitioners in the m

ental health field a self –care tool that is unparalleled while at the same time growing our awareness of our body selves that offers both a deeper grounding in oneself and greater access to body resonance to client experience (body/somatic countertransference).

Date: Sunday 28th May 2017

Time: 10am – 1pm (assemble at 9.45am to start promptly at 10am)

Location: Clonlea Yoga Studio 28b Sydney Avenue Blackrock Co. Dublin
