Embodied Wisdom, Movement and Somatic Well being Training :
Awakening to profound potential and healing, engaging with conscious embodiment in practice and everyday life for intimate connections, social change and restorative justice.
Somatic movement education training focuses on experiential practice.
It combines science with creativity, spirituality and the healing arts.
The areas of study, Soma and psyche, are as follows:
1) Somatic education -the study of the self from the perspective of one’s lived experience, encompassing the dimensions of body, psyche, and spirit.
2) Attuning presence to the emerging moment
3) Spirituality rooted through the body
4) Experiencing trauma recovery
5) Tools and resources for self care
6) Nature Connection
7) Bodywork and healing touch
9) Body consciousness, soul consciousness and awareness
Study will draw upon: Body- Mind Centring, Authentic movement practice and active imagination - Carl Jung, contact improvisation, Continuum practice and Shamanic practice.
The above will enable the following:
● Different modes of knowing: symbolic sight and metaphorical language, intuition and the felt sense, cognition, reflective and pre-reflective, verbal and non verbal communication
● Kundalini and the chakras
● Vocal expression, skilful conscious communication
● Conflict resolution
● Energy clearing and soul retrieval
● E-motional restorative and transformative practice
● Healthy boundaries
● Ritual and ceremony
This is for personal growth and continued professional development. The regulatory body for this training, of which I am a member, is ISMETA: International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association.
