Get to know common defensive movements that cause deep distress. These movements are early forms of protection unconsciously created to defend ourselves. For example, if a child habitually experiences rage from a parent, the child may collapse as a way to not fuel parental rage. In this workshop, you will learn about and experience common defensive movements. Individually and in pairs, you will sit with another’s deep distress as you learn to let the subtle vibrations move through you in clear space, disentangled. You are invited to bring specific defensive movements that you find challenging.
