Your coaching work with clients becomes more powerful when you can attend to your own embodiment and that of your clients.  If you have attended the Gestalt Coach Certification Program, or are a coach having taken Introduction to Physical Process, and want to take your coaching skills to a deeper level – this workshop is for you!

We operate with a core belief that our bodies carry our life experiences, in our musculature, our stand and our posture.  Over time, we take on a physical shape that moves beyond habit, and into a fixed structure – a Character Structure.  In this engaging experiential workshop, you will be exposed to five Character Structures. You will learn about  the shape/energy/movement of each Structure, typical re-occurring life themes, and ways to tap into these strengths and work with the dilemmas of people having a particular Structure.

Relevance of this material to International Coaching Federation (ICF) Core Competencies and the Gestalt Stance is reinforced as we incorporate presence, using self as an instrument, considering the person and their environment, experimenting and attending to the emergent presence.

 “The character of the individual as it is manifested in his typical pattern of behavior is also portrayed on the somatic level by the form and movement of the body.” A. Lowen
