I am an entrepreneur, Gestalt coach and a life-long student of embodied learning. In 2000, I stepped onto a conscious dance floor and fell in love. My love for the dance led me to Movement Medicine in 2008 and to an Apprenticeship in 2019. I have been producing Conscious Dance workshops in the US since 2006, including workshops for both Ya’Acov and Susannah when they returned to the US in 2016. The Art of Communication and embodied listening work that Susannah has developed is potent medicine that transforms us, our relationships and the world, helping each one of us find more openness and authenticity in our lives. I am honored to help her launch these embodied listening practices and skills into the worldwide community.
Kata created the graphics that accompany this workshop, translating the concepts into gently humorous and precisely communicative visual imagery.
Kata Máthé has been drawing all her life. With a background in traditional Graphic Arts, she started drawing live at events in 2013 to support learning and understanding with powerful images. Her passion is to build bridges through visuals: to create well-structured and aesthetic illustrations, infographics and animations that help people understand each other better and navigate the complexity of our world in a joyful way. She is dedicated to support communities and causes with her work that bring healing and compassion onto Earth. She has been dancing since 2005 and now she is a Movement Medicine Apprentice.
In my experience, the most important reason relationships of all kinds run into trouble is due to misunderstandings between those involved. The simple, but key skills taught by Susannah in “The Art of Communication” address this fundamental problem beautifully. I recommend this well-taught workshop to help you improve one or all of your relationships.
Deep listening is music, it is presence. It facilitates healing, understanding, and beauty. Susannah knows this practice inside out.
Susannah has a deep message and an effective methodology, plus the clarity and the compassion to help you learn this embodied listening practice, which I truly believe is so important if we want to evolve and heal as peoples on this planet.
This is soul medicine. Feeling heard is a beautiful experience and it's beautiful to be able to share this with others. These practices are "delonelyfication" practices and as such, are a good remedy for our times.
With a deep sense of humility, I propose that this profound communication skill set is one of the most essential Life 101 skills to learn —on par with balancing a checkbook, building a good fire, and boiling an egg. It is for absolutely everyone wanting to dig deeper into the joy of being alive.
I realized the universality of the need to feel heard and understood. All these tools seem to me to be a strong ground to re-connect people to each other, to bring a sane sense of community which is necessary to heal. What a gift!
This workshop is for anyone who wishes to learn skills that can enrich and deepen all of their relationships. It is for people who are ready and willing to travel into new landscapes of self-knowledge, including somatic, embodied awareness, and can take responsibility for the emotions that come up when challenged to grow and evolve.
It is for you if you want to increase your capacity for empathy and kindness and wish to support the well-being of all beings on this earth.
This workshop is not for those who don't feel open to challenge yourself to learn new skills and ways of being with self and others. Or for those who don't feel stable enough emotionally to hold themselves within what may come up when they are heard. If you have difficulty staying grounded in day to day reality then this workshop is not for you.
If any of the above feels true for you, we suggest you don't register for the workshop and encourage you to find 1:1 support with an appropriate service.
