Pointers from Neuroscience (CPD)
July 10 - July 12£270
Over the years science has provided us with many pointers that back up and enrich our work in Creative Kinesiology. Some exciting new research has given us additional ways to understand stress, danger and threat – the fundamentals of traumatic reaction. By bringing this research to life – with very practical applications – we shall be exploring how to help our clients with any leftover problems from experiences of stress, danger and threat.
However, it is important to point out that this will not equip practitioners to work through any deeply entrenched trauma their clients may bring to sessions. Offering background information and ways to help clients with what they do bring is the focus of the course. Much of our approach is geared to help our clients build their resilience: their ability to deal with and bounce back from any difficulties in life.
This six-day workshop will cover:
- The science of safety – Polyvagal theory and its applications in our work
- The importance of social engagement
- Surviving life threat and danger
- Building empathy and healing presence
- Resilience – and how to build and increase it with our clients
- Linking this work to the techniques and approaches we already know, such as the 5 elements, meridians, the 3-dimensional self
- Further techniques that bring balance – working with eyes, ears, touch
and expression among others
- Approaches that support and hold our clients
We shall have time to discuss the issues, using a comprehensive manual, as well as to practise the techniques and approaches that come from this work.

Trevanin Farm is a beautifully renovated farmstead quietly situated on the outskirts of the village of Woodbury Salterton and with self catering accommodation if required. It is rural East Devon, about 8 miles from the centre of Exeter, and only 10 minutes’ drive from Junction 30 on the M5. There is an hourly bus service to Exeter and Exmouth (Stagecoach route 56, weekdays and Saturdays until early evening), and a pub within 10 minutes’ walk. Local shopping is a short drive or cycle away, or a walk across fields to Woodbury. The nearest station at Topsham is a 10 minutes’ drive, and the airport is 15 minutes.
The wonderful East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is nearby: the Pebblebed Heaths have varied scenery, nature reserves, prehistoric sites, and lovely tracks for walking or cycling, with extensive views of East Devon, the coastline of Lyme Bay, and the Exe estuary towards Dartmoor. The pretty estuary town of Topsham is a 10 minute drive; the seaside at Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton is 20 minutes; and access to the Jurassic Coast, Dartmoor, and the rest of Devon is very easy via the M5 and other major roads.
