Experiential Anatomy & Physiology Workshops for TRANSFORMING TRAUMA

Experiential Anatomy & Physiology Workshops for TRANSFORMING TRAUMA

Have you been taught to ignore or maybe even mistrust the messages from your body?

Does your busy life leave little time for conversations with your body?

Do you tend to trust your thoughts versus listening more deeply to your body’s wisdom?

Are your body’s management strategies for coping with stress and overwhelm no longer serving you?

Learn the Language of YOUR Body with Movement, Touch & Social Engagement

How do you know that you are safe? That you are well? That you are loved?

Learning the language of the body invites you into greater relationship with your body - understanding it’s needs, its history and its conditioned responses to life. You will learn how to address the symptoms of trauma, without the cognitive narrative, by recalibrating the body’s reference of what is safe. Learn to distinguish between preconceived responses and a response based on the stimulus of present circumstances.

Come and deepen the rich and nuanced conversations of being alive within your body, gently, and in a small group setting. With clear boundaries where both teacher and students are supported to orient towards safety and attune to comfort, we will welcome both autonomy and interdependence. With curiosity and choice in a small group learning environment, the possibility to renegotiate and repair past experiences is remarkable.

Who Should Attend:

Classes open to any student interested in learning about the language of their body. Specifically, people interested in transforming trauma, either in their work with clients of themselves.

What happens in Class:

• Each day is made up of two classes that include: guided movement explorations, discussion, drawing, coloring, and partner work.

• Exercises that involve partner work are voluntary with options for learning via individual exploration.

• Extra care will be given to support those who prefer physical distancing practices, and class size is limited to 8 students.

• Exercises are designed for both individual and group experiences with respect for boundaries and confidentiality.

• We actively create conditions to foster safety with an emphasis on orienting, comfort, choice and curiosity.

• We learn about the different systems in the body as well as experiencing the body as a whole.

• We explore how we grew ourselves embryologically in the womb to the way we respond and adapted to our physical and social environments.

• We look at how we orient, sense and perceive of the world around us and how we understand our inner landscape.

• Every class gives time for journaling and consideration of how our somatic experiences are transforming trauma in our physiology and creating resilience to face future challenges.

The aim of these workshops

Moving from a sense of being stuck, separate, or frozen to that of being in flow, belonging, and connected with life. As you deepen your somatic narrative of health and wellbeing, you build resistance and pathways for healing trauma.
