SYNOPSIS

Misattunements to the internal, subjective experience of a child and the lack/scarcity of meaningful interaction with relevant caregivers during the developmental age, produce adverse effects on gene expression and a general inability to be aware of one’s internal world and subjective life. Symptoms show up in the body and the body keeps the score. In this short course we will endeavour to understand more about body-mind disconnection and to learn practices to progressively befriend the body as a way to discover one’s authentic self and to unleash one’s inner power and fullest potential.
