Embodied Education:

Creating Safe Space for Learning, Facilitating and Sharing

Monday 27th May 2023

Join Kay and Dan Aldred to learn about their book Embodied Education: Creating Safe Space for Learning, Facilitating and Sharing, and vision for a new educational paradigm based on wellbeing, co-regulation, and creativity, which advocates for body-first, relational and embodiment approaches in organisations and communities.

      • The nervous system, trauma, and stress
      • Body first approaches
      • Neurodiversity
      • The concept of safety
      • The design and infrastructure of buildings
      • Embodied models of safe, accountable, and responsible space holding, teaching and leadership
