About the Conference:
The conference is aimed at psychologists, psychotherapists, body psychotherapists, physicians, athletes and people seeking alternative therapies. Speakers with many years’ experience of working with clients will tell us about the influence the mind has on the body. Methods of working with the body in the psychological context will be presented. We will have the pleasure of working with outstanding specialists from the USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain, Denmark and, of course, from Poland.
All lectures will be translated into Polish, while lectures in Polish will be translated for foreigners into English (simultaneous interpretation).
Lectures are planned for the first day, with a lot of practice on the second day. Workshop registration will be organised on the first come first served basis.
In order to be rational, the mind must be rooted in the emotional signals sent by the body.
The tickets are available on the website: www.konferencjapracyzcialem.pl/?lang=en
How mindfulness supports the healing process
During the workshop, it will be possible to learn about the approach and practice of mindfulness, as well as to use it in working with the body. We will examine the basics of the mind-body relationship. What are our habits, beliefs, and our attitude towards what is happening during the exercises? Short practice connected with movement, breathing, and mind work that will be helpful here, allowing you to fully experience them.
The directing of non-evaluative acceptance-based attention to the current experience leads to better contact with your body and mind, and enables fuller and deeper insight in your psyche.
