Refine your consciousness as a teacher. Through lecture, discussion and simple experiential practices, Kenneth will guide students in an exploration of types of trauma, causes and effects (on mind, body and spirit), and compassion through presence, language, boundary and attuned physical contact.
Kenneth Robinson, M.S., M.T.S. has been practicing hatha and bhakti yoga, leading workshops and retreats, and teaching body-centered approaches to healing for over twenty-five years. He is a psychotherapist in the Nashville community and his practice brings together art, psychology, and spirituality as a means to facilitate emotional integration following trauma. Employing dance and movement, body and breath awareness, and “healing theatre,” Kenneth guides others beyond the shattering consequences of trauma to a sense of wholeness and connection.
He considers his work a form of performance art, and his approach is best expressed in his quote: “Freedom is not a luxury; Ecstasy is not an indulgence.” Kenneth received a Master’s degree in Counseling and Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 1977, and a Master’s in Theological Studies from the Divinity School at Vanderbilt University in 2007. He is a founding member of Chant Ram, a musical group that leads kirtan, a form of meditation and worship that allows participants to move to open-hearted awareness and self-expression through sound.
This class is designed for teachers and those in healing modalities of all kinds.
