One of the reasons that I am following my gestalt training is to become a better listener.
Communication is reading, writing, talking and listening. 40% of all communication is listening.
We all had years training to learn how to write, to learn how to read. There exists a number of training on how to speak.
The only training I know on listen is giving to therapists.
Now listening is partly about listening to what people say, and partly about what their body says.To better know what someone else body says, you have to also better understand your own body.
During the first four gestalt courses we did a lot of Bio-energetic exercises. It really helped me to understand my own body.
One of the exercises we did was the 5 tibetans. As I never remember how to do them I looked on YouTube. And yes a nice example on how to do them.
For BioEnergetics you can do almost any kind of exercise. The trick is to learn to listen to your body.
My partner now even started to follow a Bio Energetics course given by my mother. If you are from Ghent and want to have an alternative way of body exercise. Check it out.
