Live summit airs November 30 - December 1, 2023
Would you love to be liberated from deeply ingrained fight-or-flight reactions or routine triggers? And at the same time, access effective tools to help liberate your clients from chronic emotional distress and residual trauma?
In the ever-evolving landscape of mental health, the fusion of somatic movement with conventional psychology stands as a beacon of transformative healing.
This leading-edge approach is becoming a cornerstone for pioneers in the trauma field, including psychologists, therapists, social workers, and other mental healthcare experts…
… as it marks the intersection of trauma therapy, somatic psychology, and mindfulness.
Within this realm, you’ll discover how polyvagal adjustment, psycho/bio trauma release, embodied yoga, and Hakomi training also play pivotal roles. Additionally, Laban-Bartenieff, Continuum, BodyMind Centering, Feldenkrais, and the Hanna Method form a tapestry of empowering approaches to body-mind healing.
At the heart of this approach lies the understanding of the psychobiology of trauma, unraveling the intricate ways in which trauma is stored within the body and manifests in poor posture and other somatic abnormalities or dis-ease.
The emerging science of epigenetics studies how your behaviors and environment, such as repeated movements and/or other physical habits passed down through generations can actually cause changes that affect the way your genes work! And even though they do not change your DNA sequence, they can change how your body reads it.
The good news is that, unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible, and can be powerfully addressed with potent somatic movement protocols.
The Somatic Psychology Summit invites you to explore these expanding avenues for connecting to the body’s innate intelligence as a pathway to greater mental resilience, physical flexibility, and spiritual vitality — for you and your clients.
Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or new to conscious movement, you’ll discover a wide range of leading-edge research and potent body-centric somatic tools that you can add to your professional practice…
… empowering you to share insights and expertise that can help your clients heal and become whole after loss, grief, or trauma.
The journey towards an embodied and peaceful existence becomes not just a therapeutic process but a profound way of being — and a testament to the transformative power of somatic psychology in the healing arts.
