A good teacher: a constantly evolving process
Teaching is a process based on communication and communication becomes effective the more permeable we are, the more we can perceive what the other is feeling and allow ourselves to absorb a part of it within us. Even during a simple communication in everyday life, we receive from the other impressions and sensations that alter our moods; sometimes even before the other person opened their mouths to speak!
If we are perceptive, if we are open, if we do not focus only on what we could say as soon as the other has finished speaking, if we give way to those who are in front of us to express themselves and feel truly listened to, we can do something that people rarely do: we build a so-called “effective communication”. This can translate into a modification of what we are feeling and thinking and this is a total enrichment, really, in all fields, but it can also have a hidden side that can put us slightly in difficulty.
We believe that working with people, we hope that for you there are many, it will lead to a gradual loss, just if you are “good teachers” in this sense, of the total adherence to the technique you had when you initially learned it. Sometimes it can be a small deviation, like losing a sentence from memory that would help the student to bring his attention back to breath and inner sensations, sometimes it can translate into something more coarse. In fact, it happens that the teachers who participate in the refresher courses have the feeling of discovering something new only because in the space of a year of work with the students some things have slightly changed in their memory.
Sometimes, however, it may be that during the initial training course, the attention simply faded as a concept was explained and that you were not able at that time to fully retain the information given. Nothing serious or strange. In our opinion, however, it becomes essential to have the opportunity to listen to the course again in order to fill any possible small gap. Already this would be enough to make us give the right value to technical updating courses. Then we add the fact that Maestro Pino Carbone is constantly evolving and that students and instructors with different pathologies spend every day in front of their eyes … well, thanks to the experience he lives daily at the Vortex (BodyCode Main Center in Florence ), can have something useful to recommend during the new refresher course: it can allow us to learn something new, tell us about new experiences it has had, new confirmations that the method has obtained around the world.
Life itself is a constantly evolving process and asks us to be continuously updated. The people we care about (partners, children, parents, brothers and sisters, friends and colleagues) need our attention and dedication because they change and, if we do not want to risk not recognizing each other in a few years, it is better if every day we try to bring our gaze to them and to what’s going on in their lives. BodyCode also needs attention.
BodyCode also changes, because it is alive, just as you change it as you practice and teach it. An annual refresher course is perhaps the least we can do to stay fresh and focused, motivated again and, why not, to be surprised again by the discoveries we can make. Our body changes during practice, just as you see the body of those who learn our exercises from you change. Who knows what you might be able to take away from a refresher course by experiencing it with the body, the emotions and the experience you have today: after a year of practice and teaching!
