The Subtle Arts of Practice with Kay Parent
After eighteen years of practice I have gradually settled into what is below the surface of my sitting with a client. Hearing the client, holding space, settling in, allowing for something to come forward and seeing it together. Now allowing for you as practitioners to experience the subtlety of being heard, of coming forward to allow a space for you to create a practice that is unique to you and for you to feel comfortable and confident. We will explore space, voice, presence, heart, hands, intuition and how everything tumbles together and creates an atmosphere where the reason for the client setting up a session becomes apparent.
