Resolving Conflict and Enhancing Relationships – a 6-week course with Lorna Rice Davis
We sometimes experience conflict as distressing, frightening, frustrating or destructive. Conflict is good when we discover and understand its meaning. Conflict carries with it feelings, needs and behaviours that alert us to deeply hidden wounds. Resolving conflict calls us to explore our inner landscape and to deepen our awareness of what is at the heart of our personal and interpersonal conflicts.
Through discussion, personal reflection and sharing, participants will learn;
· To identify their feeling responses to conflict
· The patterns of behaviour and communication they use in their attempts to resolve conflict.
· How their internal conflicts can lead to external conflict
· The communication skills that will support them to communicate more effectively in conflict.
· The communication skills that will help avoid conflict and enhance relationships
· How and where resolution can actually be found.

EXPLORE YOUR CREATIVITY – an 8-week course with Terri O’Sullivan
This course offers an opportunity to discover and explore different aspects of oneself through the medium of art.
Visual images are often a more powerful means of expressing inner reality than might be described by words alone.
Initial reservations about using art materials are overcome by the discovery of a sense of wonder at what participants can see in the content and form of their art work.
No previous artistic experience is necessary.
"There is no must in Art because Art is free."
Terri O’Sullivan is an art therapist and SHEP tutor. She has extensive experience in working with groups in and out of SHEP. Participants in a recent workshop with Terri wrote: “A very enjoyable way to get to know yourself better… Surprised at how powerful art could be … Terri was a wonderful facilitator and her lovely gentle presence was so helpful and calming…

Somatic & Authentic Movement - Coming Home to Ourselves Through Movement and Embodying. A 7- week course with Clair Lalor
Attuning to ourselves requires a spacious, welcoming mind, an open heart and a willing body. Learning to trust ourselves is learning to trust the natural way we were made and the way we are unfolding. We will look at the early patterns of movement as they arose from before birth, during birth and as we learned to crawl and walk. This can work on many levels to strengthen our body and range of movement, to soften our mind through curiosity and acceptance, and to open our hearts to live more fully.
Clair Lalor is a somatic movement educator and therapist, a yoga teacher (BWY), SHEP tutor & trainer, sensorimotor trauma therapist, and shiatsu therapist. She also trained in process-oriented psychotherapy for 10 years.
When: Wednesdays 7.30 p.m. – 10.00 p.m. 7 weeks.
Begins Wed. November 2nd 2016.

Rosen Movement and Bodywork – a weekend workshop with Lene Espensen & Adria Dockrell.
"This work is about transformation – from the person we think we are to the person we really are. In the end, we can’t be anyone else." — Marion Rosen
Rosen Method is a gentle yet powerful form of touch and movement. The Rosen Method accesses unconscious tensions and enables us to live more at ease, and from our essence. Men and women come to Rosen Method for relief of emotional or physical pain; others want to feel more connected to themselves and others, seeking personal or spiritual growth, or wish to explore.
Rosen Method can help participants to
v Lessen stiffness, tension and pain, improve posture, flexibility, balance, range of motion and vitality
v Prevent physical difficulties before they arise
v Make breathing easier and more effective
v De-stress, and feel joy and ease in moving

She first encountered Rosen Method in Denmark in 1996. She studied in Switzerland, and subsequently in the United States with Marion Rosen.
