Art of TRE: Cultivating Curiosity with Darko Blagojević & Dr. David Berceli

Art of TRE Series: Cultivating Curiosity

It’s an exciting time for TRE as it has grown and matured with Providers and Trainers from many countries contributing their knowledge and skills to this emerging field. That’s why Dr Berceli created the Art of TRE workshop series — to highlight the creative and unique ways TRE Providers are applying their gifts in the TRE sessions they lead.

In this session Darko and David Berceli will each lead one TRE session, demonstrating their particular style of leading and providing interventions. Each session will be followed with a discussion and question and answer period to illuminate key “take-a-ways” and inspire participants in developing their own particular style of teaching.

The theme of this next workshop will explore and demonstrate the use of curiosity in the TRE process.  Here’s how Darko Blagojević from Croatia describes his approach…

“Let’s Find Out… Together”

As a TRE provider I need to stay curious about my client’s process and help them do the same. To do this I have to help them to feel safe as you can’t be curious if you are afraid. It also requires that I move out of a position of authority and being ok with not knowing.

“When You Stop Feeling Curious, Pause”

TRE can be a process of joy and expansion instead of something to be endured. My clients are generally in need of safety, so that’s what I work with, not going for big releases. So I teach them when they are not feeling curious to pause. When you are curious again start back. Then you can build capacity, a container, and safety.

For curiosity is incompatible with fear. When you are afraid you cannot be curious and when you curious your fear diminishes. You are moving toward something you are interested in.
