Life offers us so many challenges and while often we turn to others to help us, the most enduring strength lives inside us. Come and learn HOW to awaken the love that is already inside you and or/ help your clients do so, by getting out of your head and cultivating an intimate and meaningful relationship with your inner life that will nurture you, guide you, connect you with your spirit and serve you infinitely when all else fails.
In this talk, psychotherapist Stacey Klein, LCSW will share insights and tools gleaned from her 18 years of practice as a holistic psychotherapist and her personal journey to find her own light, inspired by Judaic and other spiritual practices and Somatic and Gestalt therapy perspectives. She will discuss how an embodied approach paves the path for spiritual awakening.
The presentation will offer both didactic and experiential components. The experiential component will offer participants, several “how- to” tools and exercises for accessing and embracing one’s feelings in an ongoing and enlivening way. Exercises will include a briefly led meditation focused on somatic experience and an approximate 20 minute guided developmental somatic exercise where participants will break up into dyads and then asked to share their experiences with one another and/ or with the larger group.
The information presented will be useful to those who are seeking additional tools to heal themselves as well as clinicians interested in incorporating more somatic and spiritual skills into their practice in order to help clients awaken more affectively and fully to their body, mind and spirit.
Stacey Klein, LCSW has been practicing psychotherapy for over 18 years with children, adolescents and adults. She has worked at numerous mental health and addiction programs around the city, including the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services and, most recently, Mount Sinai Medical Center.
