Happy to share this post written by a client who worked with Marion Langford, the herd and I this past fall:
To be able to do this, and then make sense of it in words later, with Marion and Cheri as witnesses to the whole dance, was a gift I will never forget.
As a therapist, I often say to my clients "Your body is not a car - your body is a horse". When I say this, I am inviting them to pay attention to the non-verbal signals of emotion and sensation that their body provides, to learn to settle their emotions and be in the moment.
I'm usually quite optimistic about new beginnings like a new year, a new school term or starting a new job. This year I'm feeling a little behind my usual ambitious start. I've been down with a bad cold/flu for 4 days now and still no signs of improvement. I have to wonder if this is a message about starting things off slowly? Cooling my jets? Taking the time I need to get well?
If any of this sounds familiar to you, or you've learned how to slow things down, prioritize what's really important, and cut out the stuff that isn't - kudos to you. I'm finding this to be a recurring challenge.
My FEEL mentors, Wendy and Andre Golding, are practicing...
