Susan Harper and Pilar Martin
Body of Perception Professional Training

 The dynamics of how we relate are simultaneously  physical and psycho-emotional. We inquire into our  core  patterns--meeting and healing those that limit us,  and  enhancing those that bring us openness,  connection  and depth. 

 Our perceptual style affects our posture, movement and  psychological profile; and affects how we relate. We  open our perception and ‘potential of action’ for  participating in all relational aspects of life.

 The precise exercises offered create a strong, flexible  and perceptive body/psyche that feeds our posture,  vitality and creativity as we meet, orient and respond  to an ever-changing world.

The Body of Perception Training includes the latest discoveries of Hubert Godard - his expanded theories, principles, new perceptual and movement exercises and hands-on techniques. Susan and Pilar are excited to bring this work and their own latest tracking and movement discoveries to this training, which is for somatic and psychological practitioners, who work with others in bodywork, movement and psychological fields.

• Physical, emotional, and psychological skills that are specific to working with physical structure perception, and relational dynamics.
• Experiential functional anatomy through movement and palpation exercises 
brings self-discovery, strengthening, and coordination of the whole body. 
• Attention to our interoceptive sensations and the ways we uniquely experience and make sense of sensory input.
• Skills to feel, identify, process, and communicate our sensations, needs, and emotions.

We deepen our relationship with gravity and perceptual spatial orientation, which builds a strong sense of safety and security; this gives us physical and emotional backing to take risks and meet creative challenges. We perceptively engage the action capacity—the skeletal structure, ligaments, and the striated muscle system to support, protect, and back the container of our soft visceral organs and our emotional expressivity.

In movement dives we breathe, slow down, sound, listen, rest into spacious silence, and deepen our capacity for fluid grounded embodiment of our creative envisioning. 

In individual and partner exercises, we build somatic and perceptive resources, and develop tracking skills of witnessing, resonance, and verbal and non-verbal dialogue.  

Susan Harper, Continuum Movement teacher, developer of Body of Relating Trainings, co-taught the Portals of Perception Trainings with Hubert Godard for 12 years.
