We all need love and connection as humans. We want to be seen for who we truly are. However we learn from an early age that we can’t always be ourselves and that leads us to silence our truth, our authentic selves, to maintain connection with the people around us. Do you sometimes struggle to feel heard and understood? Do your close others sometimes misunderstand you? Unfortunately most of us haven’t grown up learning how to communicate with openness and authenticity. But there is a way to retrain ourselves and it’s easier than you think! By accessing the wisdom of the body through somatic practices as well as learning simple communication techniques we can revolutionise the way we communicate in relationships and with others and find the path back to our authentic selves.
