Reflective Practice is an important part of professional and personal development, widely used in practitioner and clinical health settings, and complementary to your regular supervision.
These spaces offer an opportunity to form connections with your peers, deepen your knowledge and practice, support and solidify your professional confidence, and spend time in reflection on your client work within a facilitated space.
Suitable for breathworkers or bodyworkers holding a qualification or certification in breathwork and who are actively working with their own clients on a 1:1 or group basis. Reflective Practice supports safe and ethical conduct/practice in the breathworking community, and enhances our knowledge, skills and confidence as breath and bodywork professionals.
Contact if you're not sure whether your breathwork modality or profession will be a suitable fit, e.g. these spaces won't be suitable for those working with solely shamanic, holotropic or psychedelic breathwork, but in some cases will be suitable for those working with a holistic and somatic approach to the conscious connected breath (contact Coach Candy to discuss).
Reflective Practice sessions are advertised via the Arras Healing Eventbrite page found here.
