⭐ 29th June 2019 (2 days) – Mirroring Hands

CPD Event title: Mirroring Hands

Brief Description Of Event: Richard Hill will be teaching this therapeutic technique and approach over 2 days in London.
Mirroring hands takes you and the client on the next step towards healing and resolution by utilising the connection between the outer and inner self to stimulate our natural problem-solving and mind-body healing. Mindfulness has emerged to help us re-locate our sense of safety, peace and self connection, which can be broken by both personal trauma and difficulty, and by the disruptive difficulties of the modern world. Mirroring Hands is the natural progression for those who have been working with Mindfulness and in the fields of promoting mental and emotional health.

Learning Objectives: The overall objective is to learn the essential elements of the Mirroring Hands approach and therapeutic practice.

This includes:

How to introduce and induce a client to the process
The 4-Stage creative cycle and The natural Ultradian Rhythm
How to facilitate the client’s natural problem solving and mind-body healing
The language and silence of Mirroring Hands
Appreciation of “sensitive observation”
The meaning and value of a client-responsive approach
How to be sensitive to the variety of ideodynamic responses
The nature of comfort and how comfort facilitates strength
Discovering your growing edge and exploring your best way to practice
Learning to trust improvisation of technique
Observing a demonstration
Understand advanced use and application of Mirroring Hands in clinical situations.

Course Structure: Day 1 – Certificate I: Essential Practice

Session 1 – The Natural Rhythms and Cycles
We explore and re-establish our awareness of the best ways of being. We will learn about natural problem-solving capacities both individually and in relationship with the client.

​Session 2 – The Wonders in Our Hands
We begin the process of learning and experience how we can utilize the hands to open a connection to the inner self. Practical exercises will introduce the framework of the Mirroring hands experience followed by a demonstration.

​Session 3 – The Language and The Silence of Mirroring Hands.
We explore the powerful effect of using only as much language as the client needs in order to begin problem solving and healing processes. More experiential work with different aspects of Mirroring Hands will deepen your felt experience of the practice.

​Session 4 – A Client Responsive Therapeutic Approach
Through experiential exercises we will explore the important client responsive approach of sensitive observation and therapy emerging as a response to the client, rather than a direction or even suggestion. A final group exercise will prepare you for the way you choose to utilise Mirroring Hands beyond the workshop.

Day 2 – Certificate II: Practitioner I

Session 1 – Ideodynamic Responses – motor/sensory/affect
We begin with reflections of the first workshop, then we explore the nature of the ideomotor response, expanding out to the many other ways messages are sent from the implicit world to explicit awareness. This includes experiential activities

​Session 2 – Comfort and the Growing Edge
We consider the concept of comfort and strength, first in discussion and then through a group Mirroring hands activity. A demonstration by Richard and an appropriate member of the group will be followed by reflective discussion.

​Session 3 – Practice
We begin with the application of specific forms in groups of three and then move to an unregulated facilitation of Mirroring Hands between pairs.

​Session 4 – Advanced Use and Application
Mirroring Hands is an improvised experience based on the technical principles. This final practical session brings together and integrates what has been learnt to allow each person the opportunity to discover what stage of applying Mirroring Hands they have reached.
