Move. Feel. Heal. An Intro to SomaSoul®

  • The Art of Living Retreat Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Unwind, slow down, and soothe your nervous system with the healing practices of SomaSoul® Somatic Therapy. SomaSoul® is a body-centered therapy that thoughtfully sequences simple movements culled from yoga, dance, and bodywork with creative, expressive arts (drawing, journaling, imagery) based exercises to help you relax your body and ease your mind.

Releasing body tension is essential to grounding our energies and quieting busy minds. Settling an anxious mind which holds our anxiety and life stress translates directly to a more relaxed physical state. To cultivate a steadier, more lasting calm in our being and life we need gentle, safe ways to address the discomforts that flow in our mind and body. This workshop will introduce you to core SomaSoul® practices and help you move, feel, and heal your body-mind and soul.

Return home with a deeper understanding of your self, more self-acceptance and simple, grounded tools that encourage a new found connection to your body and soul.

The workshop welcomes everyone and may be of particular interest to care providers looking for a heart-centered, intuitive and creative way to connect with themselves and their clients.

Many of us suffer from a disconnection between our minds and bodies. Yet we are NOT separate pieces, we are a continuous flow of energy and information. We are psycho-physical beings who get caught living our lives primarily from our intellect. We do things for our bodies but do not know how to access our embodied wisdom.  We struggle in truly listening to our body and unlocking the stories within current tensions, tensions we may have held onto our whole life!
