Boundaries: The Foundation of Satisfying Relationships

Boundaries: The Foundation of Satisfying Relationships

Wed, Oct 16, 6:15 - 7:15 PM
Tree top Yoga Studio in Gloucester

Clear communication regarding boundaries - what we want and need or don’t want or need - is extremely important in relationships. Most of us were not taught that we have a right to set boundaries or how to communicate about them. Bioenergetic therapy, a form of body-oriented psychotherapy, provides tools and techniques to help people learn to communicate about their boundaries more clearly - both verbally and non-verbally. In this talk we will:

  • broaden the definition of personal boundaries
  • explore boundary extremes including rigid and soft
  • work with an exercise for grounding as a primer for making boundaries
  • learn body based techniques for practicing clear and direct communication

The talk will be informational and participatory, providing tools you can use!

I thank you so so much Laurie for all your help, support and encouragement. I never would have believed that this kind of therapy would be so helpful to me, especially when I had never known about this self-healing, energy of your body. As we both know my body tells me everything.
