Embodied Wisdom, Movement and Somatic Well Being Training :
Awakening to profound potential and healing, engaging with conscious living for intimate connections, social change and restorative justice.
Somatic movement training focuses on experiential practice and the intelligence of the body knowing.
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 inner lived experience, encompassing the dimensions of body, psyche, spirit and deep body listening. Integral to this is the awareness of self, the environment and other, an alchemical process allowing for transformation, connection and health.
2) Attuning presence to the emerging moment
3) Spirituality rooted through the body and sacred connections
4) Experiencing trauma recovery and release
5) Tools and resources for self care
6) Nature Connections
7) Bodywork and healing touch
9) Body consciousness, soul consciousness and Mindful Movement
10) Experiential anatomy- emotional/ physical/ cultural, body systems and the elements
11) Dance Therapy and Psychology- working with the affects system.
An inquiry into the nature of being human and these areas of study, may allow you to see what area you are more pulled towards with further resources provided to support your learning journey.
Study will draw upon: Body- Mind Centring, Authentic Movement Practice and 'Active Imagination' - Carl Jung, Contact Improvisation, Continuum Practice, Dance as a healing Art, Focusing and Shamanic Practice. You can search these on-line for more information.
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
● Life force energy and the chakras
● Vocal expression, skilful conscious communication
● Conflict resolution
● Energy clearing and soul/life retrieval
● E-motional restorative and transformative practice
● Healthy boundaries
● Ritual and ceremony
* Prevention of stress, dis-ease and illness
