"Hook-up is the most important element of transformation."

Dr. Milton Trager

This course is about exploring the depth of this work and connecting what we have learnt so far into one. We will continue to practice leading groups. We will also explore alternative ways of applying Trager while sitting and working with the client in the lateral position. Through active and passive movement, we will create a space for differentiated body awareness and self-awareness training. Listening and empty, receiving hands enable new and more comprehensive experiences of one's own aliveness.
