The International Sophrology Federation held its first ever Conference on the 4th of May, this year, in Kent. It was a big success and attended by sophrologists from many different schools. We heard from several sophrologists who dhared their areas of expertise with us: Karen Cohen gave a talk on Sophrology in the English-speaking corporate world. I gave a talk on Sophro-Ki Sophrology, Sophie-Caroline Mennear told us about her children’s project in London, Eleanor Cadet shared her highlights from her work with Cancer, Parkinsons and Alzheimer patients at Cambridge Hospital.
Throughout the day we practised some old and some new sophrology exercises to keep us focussed and energised. The day ended with Florence Parot, Director of the Sophrology Academy in London, facilitating a discussion about the future vision for sophrology around the world.
Participants came from around Europe and we enjoyed networking, strengthening our connections and setting up new projects together.
The next conference will be on the 3rd of May 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland.
