From Mindfulness to Embodiment: An Introduction to Somatics 5/10/22
May 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
While “mindfulness” is widely known today, there’s a new and exciting world beyond the mind that offers us a gold mine of insight and transformation: our bodies.
In this two-hour introduction to Somatics, we’ll explore how embodiment practices can connect us more deeply with ourselves and others. We’ll focus on practical ways to move from our heads – and overthinking – into our body and its deeper inner wisdom. We’ll explore the Greek word “soma,” or body, and why everything from culture to diet, community and (yes) thoughts make us who we are. Finally, we’ll discuss new trauma research that shows how trauma is stored in the body and thus often doesn’t respond to “talk therapy” alone. Come join us for a wide-ranging experience!
