Richard Hill: Certificate 1 – Essential Practice, Mirroring Hands
NOTE: Richard is presenting his eight-hour course in just four hours. To make up for lost face-to-face time, Richard has asked that attendees read three chapters of his book, The Practitioners Guide to Mirroring Hands. If you have registered for the workshop and have not received the reading material, please contact the ASCH.
Session 1 – The Natural Rhythms and Cycles
We explore and re-establish our awareness of the best ways of being. We will learn about natural problem-solving capacities both individually and in relationship with the client.
Session 2 – The Wonders in Our Hands
We begin the process of learning and experience how we can utilize the hands to open a connection to the inner self. Practical exercises will introduce the framework of the Mirroring hands experience followed by a demonstration.
Session 3 – The Language and The Silence of Mirroring Hands.
We explore the powerful effect of using only as much language as the client needs in order to begin problem solving and healing processes. More experiential work with different aspects of Mirroring Hands will deepen your felt experience of the practice.
Session 4 – A Client Responsive Therapeutic Approach
Through experiential exercises we will explore the important client responsive approach of sensitive observation and therapy emerging as a response to the client, rather than a direction or even suggestion. A final group exercise will prepare you for the way you choose to utilise Mirroring Hands beyond the workshop.
The overall objective is to learn the essential elements of the Mirroring Hands approach and therapeutic practice. This includes:
- How to introduce and induce a client to the process
- The 4-Stage creative cycle and The natural Ultradian Rhythm
- How to facilitate the client’s natural problem solving and mind-body healing
- The language and silence of Mirroring Hands
- Appreciation of “sensitive observation”
- The meaning and value of a client-responsive approach
This full day workshop will lay the foundations for both the practical application and conscious understanding of what is involved in Mirroring Hands. It is the first step in becoming a master practitioner of Mirroring Hands and to become fully engaged in the traditions of Milton Erickson and Ernest Rossi that are the foundation for this unique practice.
