Australian courses in Melbourne and Queensland
Learning Objectives. Participants will:
- Develop skills of self and co-regulation, stabilization, and coherency in the body.
- Demonstrate basic skills for trauma release, including resourcing, facilitated felt sense exercises, and directed energy techniques.
- Create touch sequences to stabilize and facilitate energy in the body for trauma release.
- Understand one aspect of the baby's experience of birth from the inside out, and the 5 point sequence as an imprint.
- Differentiate and introductory sense of the blueprint and imprint in trauma prevention and resolution.
This is course is mostly experiential, filled with exercises that will teach about autonomic nervous system state, blueprint positive states especially, and how to work with trauma experiences somatically. Most exercises can be done in small groups online. The last day we complete a birth sequence together as a group, everyone taking a turn with the support of all of us. For those who attend virtually we will do this with you online, with you in your own space. We are still discovering ways for you to have this experience so that you can touch in with your own early experience. It will give you a taste of early imprints then you can discern if you want to go further in learning prenatal and perinatal dynamics.
You will be able to attend this live workshop via zoom technology.
Outline of the Foundations Course:
Testimony about Foundations in Prenatal and Perinatal Dynamics
"Perfectly paced, incredibly supportive, deeply transformative, this workshop gave an excellent framework for building a new paradigm for Birthworkers that can use immediately when serving mothers and babies. Not only did we walk away with tools to use in life, relationships, birth, and after, but we also gained insight from a baby’s perspective as a conscious being. The class had plenty of time to experience the techniques and practice the insights gained. In addition to all of that - I had a profound and deep experience in connection with my conception and birth. I was further gifted —by being present to others who each experienced tender insights of their own.
As a class, we were wanted, welcomed, loved and protected and cared for so elegantly that ( it seemed to me) that all students felt safe to share, shed, stretch and laugh! It is my favorite kind of beingness - to experience such deep connection with others. I am truly fortunate to have experienced this workshop with Kate White and midwife Lois Trezise and all!" -- Barbara River, Birth Power, New Jersey
