We will also enjoy the teachings of others through books, especially Lynda Barry and Iain McGilchrist: recommended reading here. Don't worry--it's not required.
Roxanne Dault from Quebec will offer workshops on Somatic Experiencing:
The spiritual path is at the heart of Roxanne’s life. From a very young age, she was drawn to silence. Roxanne has been practicing meditation and different spiritual approaches for over 15 years, both in Asia and in the West. Teaching in French and English at True North Insight in Canada, she is always touched by the interdependence of human beings. She teaches in different settings (communities, prison, yoga centers, etc.) and is currently a participant in the 2017-2021 IMS Teacher Training Program.
Wanting to learn more about what it means to be a human being, she trained in Somatic Experiencing® (SE) for the healing of stress and trauma.
The founder of SE, Peter Levine, says, "I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening."
Her deepest intention is to share the joy and beauty of the practice so that all people can touch the happiness and wisdom that permeates every moment. In her workshop, Roxanne will share her love of the nervous system, how it works and unfolds, how to heal and free the body and will share ways to balance our body and mind harmoniously.

Anton Eastick of Australia will offer at least 2 sessions (talks and worskhops) on Hakomi psychotherapy:
Anton writes: I stumbled along the spiritual path until landing in Bodhgaya, India in the mid 90’s and hearing my first dharma talk. Those words were like the purest form of love I’d waited my whole life to hear. Since then, the dharma has been my main interest and love affair. Hakomi psychotherapy was introduced to me by Subhana Barzaghi, who suggested correctly I would enjoy it.
People ask and often assume, I would find it tiring listening to the woes of people. The complete opposite is true. The first step as a Hakomi therapist is to find something to love in the person in front of us and this never tires. “The garden of love is green without limit, and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition. Without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.” Hafez. Hakomi is psychotherapy as a spiritual path."
Session 1. Hakomi psychotherapy as a spiritual path
Loving presence, the foundation for therapeutic connection.
Session 2. Our character and personality.
An overview of how character can develop due to missing experiences, such as loving acceptance or validation, in our life and how that can shape decisions we make in the present. In Hakomi we’re not as interested in working with wounds as we are in helping people to have the experience that was missing from earlier in life, such as loving acceptance or validation, here in this moment and in the future.
