Katie Hendricks – Body Intelligence in Action course
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational training, Katie will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies that you’ll need to discover your true body intelligence quotient (BQ) for living a more vital, balanced and love-filled life.
Each module will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to recognize and be guided by your body’s wisdom.
Module 1: Breathing & Moving into Authentic Relationship with Yourself
A question central to relationship can only be answered with Body Intelligence: Are you fully open to intimacy or unconsciously defending yourself against it? Are you willing to shift from criticism and adrenaline-fueled living to the full flow of aliveness? This session focuses on the power of breath, movement and presence to expand your ability to enjoy being completely with yourself and completely open to relating, exploring and expanding in love every day.
In this session you learn to:
Recognize and shift your personal upper limit patterns — the ways in which you’ve unconsciously learned to stop yourself from enjoying more love and positive energy every day.
Release the inner critic and open a nourishing experiencing of genuine self-care.
Notice body language that indicates openness or resistance to intimacy.
Breathe in ways that support you loving yourself and loving the feelings that arise in relationship.
Cultivate a new Body Intelligence skill, Heliotroping, which gives you the ability to shift back to presence when you’ve drifted into old patterns.
Module 2: Presencing Power
Presencing is the ability to show up and participate fully in your life and relationships. Presencing is the moment-by-moment practice of paying affectionate attention to the current reality, whatever it is. This session focuses on the experiential tools that enhance your ability to be present, especially in relationship, whether romantic, business or friendship.
The foundational skills that enhance presence and assist you in returning to the now when relationship challenges arise.
How to shift from fear and reactivity to flow so you can call on your deep resources to participate fully and creatively in life.
The core presencing skills that create flow and creativity throughout your day.
How to apply presencing skills so that common relationship issues resolve spontaneously.
The nonverbal presencing skills that shift issues and enhance creativity faster than “working” on relationship issues.
Module 3: Freeing Up Emotional States
With Guest Faculty Gay Hendricks
Body intelligence skills make changing an emotional state easy and even fun. The Ten-Second Miracle Moves give you powerful body-centered skills that free your creative and relating ability to be more effective and responsive, rather than reactive.
You’ll learn 7 specific processes we call the Ten-Second Miracles. Each rapidly brings about clarity, ease and understanding — and are designed to be used “in the heat of action.”
Feeling Through to Space
Naming Energy Shifts
Speaking From Discovery
Leading With Appreciation
Module 4: Resonance
Resonance — the Body Intelligence skill of tuning in sensitively to ourselves and another person — is a primary skill for those who want to enjoy the maximum amount of love and good feelings throughout the day and in all your relationships. Your ability to sense inside and reflect deeply with another creates a third state we call the “We-Field.” The We-Field is a new state of consciousness that generates ongoing vitality and co-creativity in relationships.
You’ll learn a skill set in this session that allows you to:
Shift from resistance to engagement with the ever-flowing dynamics of life.
Listen with your whole body in a way that opens greater intimacy between listener and speaker.
Speak from awareness and discovery, rather than rehearsing or rehashing.
Increase your sensitive awareness of your own inner landscape, feelings and the inner life of others.
Module 5: Opening to Creative Flow
There is both an art and a science to opening a creative flow between people. Relationship researchers refer to certain types of actions as “bids for attention.” When you learn how to give attention to another person’s bids for attention, you can eliminate conflict and enhance the creative flow between yourself and others. In addition, learning how to open and nurture your inner creative flow is an essential precursor to manifesting what you want in your overall life.
You’ll learn to:
See openings to creative flow, and notice and give attention to positive possibilities and solutions rather than looking for what’s wrong.
Use your body intelligence to make decisions quickly and effectively.
Develop your creativity ‘muscles’ with specific practices that only take 10 minutes a day.
Module 6: Embodying Wonder
A specific way to shift from blame to wonder is a core skill to enhance relationships and creativity. This session focuses on a specific body intelligence tool: Wonder Shift, which takes you from experiencing life as a victim to experiencing life as a person of true creative power.
A primary transformation process we developed called FACT, an acronym for Facing, Accepting, Choosing and Taking Action.
How to make the Wonder Shift in the midst of conflict, both within yourself and in relationship to others in relationship.
How to generate your own powerful Wonder Shift questions.
How to explore and release the limiting belief systems that may be preventing your relationship harmony and ability to manifest the things you want easefully.
Module 7: Manifesting with Ease
With Co-faculty Gay Hendricks
Body Intelligence skills take the effort out of manifestation, the ability to make real the dreams in your life. We have been exploring manifestation in our own lives, and teaching about to others, for more than 35 years now. We have developed a powerful set of practices, none taking longer than 10 minutes and many that can be done in 10 seconds. We’ll share our personal experiments in manifestation as well as stories from people who have successfully used these techniques.
A new way to understand and practice manifestation, based on paradigms from Newtonian, Einsteinian and Quantum physics.
Practical manifestation techniques based on the three physics paradigms.
Manifestation techniques that transform relationships.
How to integrate all the skills you’ve been practicing in previous weeks to manifest the life and relationship of your dreams…
