An Introduction to Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapy offers healing arts practitioners and individuals interested in integrative mind-body medicine tools to enhance mental, emotional, physical, and biological functions to bring optimal well-being and healing. For this approach, healing is the processes of returning to the felt sense of wholeness through the integration of support, expression, and movement.
This workshop will be an introduction to this experiential model for psychophysical healing and self discovery. This approach utilizes evidence-based practices and research in the field of somatics, biology, sociology, psychology, manual therapy, and spirituality to increase awareness and attention to inner sensations and subtleties of one sense of self, establish clarity and efficiency of movement patterns, unpack and processes emotions in a way that promotes resiliency, and cultivates a deeper connection to the natural world.
