Ontological and Somatic Coaching Core Competencies: Creating Awareness and Designing Actions
Coaches help clients create shifts in thinking and action that will open new possibilities. One crucial element often missing is that all thinking and actions take place in the context of a physical body (soma). This month’s meeting provides a framework for coaches to use to involve the physical way of being in the coaching process.
Annette Brackin will review a model of ontological coaching and the relevance of coherence of one’s way of being, and then focus on somatic coaching which teaches people how to work with the physical body as a domain of rich learning and required vehicle to take skillful action. She will lead you through somatic exercises you can use to explore the role of your own coherence in new ways as well as offer new distinctions to your clients.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Articulate how physical bodies shape and alter thinking, mental models, moods, emotions, stories, beliefs and behavior.
- Describe why Ontological and Somatic Coaching create new possibilities by including the physical body in the mix.
- Share the results of their somatic practice experiences and describe what physically awakens them to support their goals
- Involve basic physical elements in their coaching practices.
Participants are invited to come and be open to new ideas, participate fully and enjoy and engage! They are asked to wear clothing comfortable for physical movement in the room to experience somatic practices. No strenuous exercise will be performed, just movement connected to thinking patterns and possibilities for the future.
