Metaphors of Movement Level 1

Metaphors of Movement Level 1

For thousands of years metaphor has been recognized as a powerful tool for human communication and storytelling. Now Andrew T. Austin of the UK has developed a sophisticated and fundamentally new model for uncovering and engaging the metaphors we already use. These unconscious metaphors for moving through life impact who we are and what we’re able to do (or not do).

Learn not only how to uncover your own metaphors, but how to engage them at a physiological and neurological level — a completely new approach to overcoming stuck states and creating effective movement towards our personal goals.

The format of this course is fun and experiential. Your trainer Mark Andreas will introduce each topic, share examples, and demonstrate with volunteers or guided exercises. You’ll be encouraged to explore and practice each element yourself before continuing on.

The content from this video course is taken from a live-online Training with Mark Andreas, and edited into bite-sized videos under 15-minutes (many of them under 5 minutes). This makes it easy to fit into your busy schedule, and easy to find and review any specific content area you want to refresh. (It also means you get to benefit from the rich group discussion and questions from the original training participants.) If you watch 2 short videos per day, you’ll complete the course in just 1 month.

Finally, additional content has been added, such as a recorded client session demonstration of the Metaphors of Movement process with someone who has no prior experience of the method. The course also comes with a comprehensive manual for reference AFTER you have the experience yourself. The manual also includes many Metaphors of Movement client session examples, so you can see this put into practice.

What You'll Learn In Level I

Learn the structure of the Metaphors of Movement process. We’ll go from “how do I access my metaphor?” through exploring how to gain clarity and insights based on what you find. You’ll have lots of guidance and help as you explore your subjective experience in a new way. Most important, you’ll have ample opportunity to explore metaphors for your own life situations. It can be surprising what we can learn from our own inner metaphors. Many “ah-ha’s” emerge as we go through the course of the training.
