Connecting body, heart and mind!

I wanted to feel energy moving around in my body and this workshop gave me that and so much more – connection in a profound way in the body, soul and mind – and I think it will help me in my relationships with others by checking in with my own needs and feelings, I can allow myself to be more open – Hilary, UK

Working closely with you, Tracy, throughout the week was a powerful experience. You gently and softly provided the tools that empowered me to open up and unlock the wisdom and knowledge that was always there. I feel I now know and understand (and love) myself more than ever. A real gift. Thank you – Catherine, UK

Dance with Life!

Dancing with Life retreat, was a personal growth holiday with a brilliant difference. The sunshine, nature and friendships made were healing in themselves, but as well as that we experienced Biodanza, mixed with life coaching, all in a group setting. The life coaching creatively focussed our logical awareness of ourselves and our issues. The Biodanza combined movement with inspiring music and fun, playful exercises that worked at a surprisingly profound level.  Somehow, almost magically, these two things  – Dance, movement and NVC combined connected me to a deeper aspect of myself and bought part of me to life again. I loved this holiday and would really recommend it to others who want to reignite their sparkle (or mojo) Nicki, London London

The whole week was amazing – the new connections and friendships, far exceeded any expectations I had when I signed up – M, UK

I attended Tracy’s workshop as a relative newcomer to NVC, familiar with the concepts and yet at a loss for how to apply them with any measure of success in my daily life. I was looking for an immersion course that fit my preferred pace of learning which is a few hours a day of deep, focused, in-person learning followed by plenty of time afterwards to rest, think, and really soak in the material. I was drawn to Tracy’s approach in particular for the blend of study/practice and movement, and Kalikalos’ website called up fond memories of summer camp from my childhood. In short, I’ve learned how important the mind-body connection is for my healing/growth, how supportive it is for me to be surrounded by nature, and how much fuller experiences are for me when shared with other people with similar values.

The workshop itself was amazing. Tracy is a gifted teacher and her attunement to the group’s needs was evident from the start. We did a wide range of activities and what made this so unique was Tracy’s somatic approach. For instance when learning the art of reflection Tracy had us up and partnered – expressing our emotions/thoughts/questions through movement and taking turns reflecting with our physical presence which I found both playful and liberating. I was able to “get out of my head” and stop trying to find the right words, and just delight in human connection and communication. I had forgotten how much can be “said” without speaking.  Things definitely shifted for me during and after this workshop. There were times when I felt fully seen, understood, and supported in a way which I have never experienced before, and I gained a tremendous amount of insight into my own needs, and a bit more courage to make requests of others for suport. Val, USA

NVC Intermediate training days with Movement and Dance

The Dance Connection element really helped me to feel safe enough in the gap’s – presence – to lower my barriers and request support, which is something that I have struggled to do. Tracy brought nurturing, playful energy to the day and facilitated open, authentic sharing amongst the group – Hazel, London

I have always been a little sceptical when it comes to dance and movement. What I learnt during my sessions with Tracy was that by connecting to my body in expressive movement actually connects me with ME. There have been so many instances where my body gives my true thoughts and feelings away, in ways that I never really understood – until now. Thank you Tracy for opening my eyes to a new learning edge for me. Vic, London
