An Open Floor Professional Movement Training

4 Essential Movement Inquiries for creating relationally successful environments

80% of relational communication happens between our bodies, below or alongside the words or content. In situations that require intimacy, engagement, trust, productivity and collaboration, we need the ability to decipher the messages we receive in even the simplest of communications. What we feel, what we see, what we think, and what we say verbally, emotionally and nonverbally, can mean many different things at the same time.

The Open Floor curriculum works with 4 embodied processes that help us discern the complexities that are normal relational dynamics. They are called the ‘4 Differentiations’ - the art of singling out different aspects of our experience without losing sight of the whole. Differentiation is a crucial skill to learn in the quest for emotional and relational intelligence.

The 4 Differentiations are:

  • Sensation from Story (starting this February 2023 NZ)
  • Me from You
  • Past from Present
  • Intent from Impact

The relational environments that are important to us - work, home, community - can only be as good as our ability to communicate, to name difficulties and confusions, to soften defenses and get back on track again.

Open to anyone, and of particular interest to anyone exploring embodiment in a professional setting – conscious movement teachers, therapists, teachers of all kinds, coaches, managers etc.

This is an informal series in 4 parts. Each workshop stands alone as it own worthy teaching and skill set.
