NEW VIDEO ADDED TO SKILLS FOR HEALING SERIES
Rich Sims (Somatic Educator and WOR Facilitator) has been busy working on production of six videos to increase awareness about somatic aspects of healing from trauma. The newest video focuses on Body Awareness…
In this video, we "look out to look in” and explore and gain new skills to become aware of what’s actually going on both around us and inside our bodies as the events in our daily lives play out. This is one of the first steps in helping us gain the power to make the changes we would like to see in ourselves while helping to strengthen the positive qualities we already have. (also available with Spanish subtitles)
Check out the two previous videos that are also available in our Skills for Healing video series:
