ARRIVING HOME (Embodied Empowerment Series #1)

  • Brighton Learning House 20 Northfield Way Brighton, England, BN1 8EH United Kingdom (map)

Do you sense that children have boundless potential, and yearn to find a way to unlock it?

Would you like new ways to help your child learn something they are struggling with?

Are you a parent or professional with a sense that whatever you are doing could be more effective?

This practical and enriching workshop is for you.

Children have limitless potential to learn. Daily life presents us with countless opportunities to connect with this potential and to enable life-changing learning. The brain is key in managing all the things we do, whether that is the ability to concentrate, follow directions, self-regulate stress and emotions or specific skills like speech, writing or academics.

This workshop will give you specific ways that you can wake up your child’s brain to new levels of learning, through the things that you are already doing! You will learn how to infuse each learning opportunity with such potency that you no longer have to teach things over and over. Join us as we learn how to transform the learning of those around us and have it be just like ARRIVING HOME.

Dive into 6 powerful ways to help your child reach their potential:

  1. Start with yourself - How you can change what you are doing so that your child can be calmer and more attentive. Applying new discoveries from neuroscience about self-regulation to your life, now.

  2. Deeper connections - How to enrich your connection with your child and understand them more fully.

  3. Be curious, it opens possibilities - Learn the power of curiosity and wonder and discover ways you can inspire learning and make yourself and learning more compelling.

  4. Touch matters - Discover how your touch can help their brain wake up. Whether daily tasks (e.g. dressing, teeth brushing) or therapeutic interventions, our touch can be a powerful conduit for learning, or can switch off the learning process. Learn how to make touch work for you.

  5. Listen and transform - Discover how to listen so that your interactions are more successful and manifest greater cooperation and collaboration. Understand the different levels of listening and how you are using them either to your advantage or disadvantage in every interaction. Transform your ability to understand your child.

  6. Getting out of habitual reactions – Learn a simple yet profound tool to change our emotional reactions and transform what happens around us.

This experiential, participatory workshop will run 10.00-17.00 each day. There will be opportunities to practice and get comfortable with how these ideas work in yourself and with those you are helping.

Taught by Sean Williams, this work draws from his 35 years of studying, exploring, developing and teaching this subject to clients, parents and professionals. Drawing on his experience as a parent, Senior HANDLE® Practitioner and Instructor, his Feldenkrais and NeuroMovement training and his Shiatsu practice, Sean has brought forward key learning and practices that revolutionise the benefits of helping others. He offers them here for the first time in workshop format. Join us. Start a revolution in learning.
