Description: Everyone repeats phrases to themselves and to the people in their lives: “I’m sorry,” “I hear what you are saying,” “That’s not good enough,” and so forth. Where do these phrases come from? Who taught them to us? How do we use them? Are they helpful? For many of us this is an unconscious process that we are ready to explore. In this workshop we will unearth the phrases and words that recur in our thoughts and verbalizations through sensation awareness, group embodiment, and artful responses.
