“Innovative Model Using Body-Centered Skills”
April 7, 2015$150
Body Mindful Practitioner: An Innovative Model Using Body-Centered Skills for Therapists, Counselors and Coaches
A Seminar at UW with Suzanne Kilkus, PhD
Learning simple body-centered skills greatly enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the therapeutic or coaching process for clients. It gives them tools for self-regulation that promote healing, deeper understanding of self and others, and maturation.
This workshop includes presentations, experiential learning,
demonstrations, and group discussion.
After this course, students should be able to:
• Describe research-based strategies that support
rapid shifts in clients and their relationships;
• Apply body-centered skills that elicit change at the
neuronal level which supports the development of
emotional health and mindful living;
• Develop self-awareness strategies for practitioners;
• Demonstrate how to use entire-body learning to
resolve issues and create new pathways for learning.
Suzanne and others from Open Door Zen Community lead weekly Sunday meditation practice. We sit in the Soto Zen tradition and guided by our teacher, Flint Sparks, of the Appamada community in Austin Texas.
Sundays – 5:30-6:45 pm
You are asked to arrive by 5:25pm.

BOOK: “The Fifth Rule of Ten” by Gay Hendricks
The next in the Tenzin Norbu series is out! Gay Hendricks has created a character of complexity – a former Buddhist monk turned police officer turned private investigator. These stories combine action and mystery with conscious living and loving principles based in Buddhist practice. Engaging, thought-provoking and highly recommended. Read the whole series. You start caring about Ten and the people in his life and wonder how they are doing.
