Dates: 9/10 March 2020
The workshop will focus on the Leadership Embodiment Level 1 practices and approaches developed by Wendy Palmer.
We will work with such themes as centring under pressure, finding balance, effective leadership and followership, focusing energy, aligning body, heart and mind to your outcomes, and attuning to oneself and others.
Through various non-strenuous activities and practices you will learn about your habitual patterns of behaving and thinking, and develop alternatives, including ways to respond to the incoming pressures of life from a place of ‘centre’ rather than from your judgements and fears. This workshop works with the integrated, instinctive and intuitive intelligence within you; an exploration of your soma – the mind, body, emotions and spirit in their interconnected wholeness.
I will draw upon martial arts, mindfulness practice, energy work, Feldenkrais, NLP and probably a little philosophy and physiology.
We will engage in conversation and simple ‘physical-mental’ exercises to explore:

“Paul King has a remarkably and highly-tuned intuitive grasp on how energy manifests itself through the way the body conveys what it is really experiencing and wanting to communicate. In his embodied work he lifts the overlay of social assumptions into letting one see what is really being said. In doing so he reminds us that, though we have language, the bodies of all mammals are intensely powerful in the way they communicate. The skills of understanding and responding to those messages get lost among allegedly civilised human beings, but Paul helps regain those skills for whoever has time to listen, time to hear, and wants to know.”
Paul Brown, Professor of Organisational Neuroscience at Monarch Business School Switzerland and co-author of, The Fear-Free Organization and Neuropsychology for Coaches.
“Paul is a master of somatics. Having studied the field for 25 years myself it’s not easy to find experts who can genuinely show me something new, but Paul is one of them. The weekend was insightful, quietly rigorous and we also had a lot of fun and laughter too!”
Liz Rivers, Leadership Coach
“I feel genuinely empowered with a more embodied awareness of my tendency to see others as resistors and then engage in resistance myself, which is a futility exercise. It occurred to me this weekend that many of the things that “come at me” in life – emails, needs from my team, family demands (or perceived demands) – I over-engage/invest in addressing such items, at a cost to my greater purpose/needs. I’ve a hunch that my excessive busyness, taking the place of self-care and “peace” in life, is because I get lost engaging in this ‘resistance’ versus staying on purpose.”
