In this video I explore and introduce Embodied Relating. Embodied Relating is a central skill and theory that I return to again and again in my teaching. "Our body bathes in and soaks up the embodied presence of the client; we catch fire from her; we breathe her in and metabolise her; our ground state reverberates to her rhythms, and our own rhythms shift to meet them." (Totton, Embodied Relating, 2015)
Embodiment and Relationship are interrelated and inseparable. In this video I explore the subtle skill set of connecting to and utilising our embodiment as a relational resource. The starting place for working relationally, is being with our own experience in the moment.
