Daniel Cook (LMHC) and myself will be leading an experiential workshop on Trauma and the Body at the Transformation festival this October.
Finding Choice in the Body-Mind: An Experiential Workshop
How do experiences of the past shape our relationship to the present? How is memory encoded in our bodies? Do body-based memories perpetuate reactivity rather than choice in our lives? In this experiential workshop we will explore the relationship of trauma in both mind and body. Through neuroscientific research we will explore our inherent, biological defenses that become shaped by significant experiences and end up framing our "yes", "no", and "maybe's". Movement, contemplative, and somatic oriented explorations will be offered to support nervous system regulation and the processing of significant memories.
