Sound Body Wisdom training is a diverse somatic approach into the fundamentals of movement, breath, awareness, and sound. Engaging energetic play, subtle listening, and reflection from a place of inner sensation and deep curiosity, we are guided toward our inherent wisdom beyond function, habit, and conditioning. This is a practice that invigorates and challenges while deepening our understanding of our mind body connection.
The practice of Somatics emphasizes attention towards our internal physical perceptions, sensing, and experience. It is a study of the self from the perspective of our lived experience of body, mind, and spirit.
Sound Body Wisdom follows this path while expanding to acknowledge and embrace the significance of emotions, thoughts, and energies to also guide our insights into our lived experience. In this practice we bring the unconscious forward into a more conscious knowing, creating more options for how we move, feel, think and live day to day. This practice is a bridge builder to access more of our human potential.
This is the practice…to deepen our awareness into our own wisdom, wherever we are in life.
In this training we will engage tools and techniques to deepen our understanding of mind body science and interplay.
Participants will be led through group, partnered and individual exercises in:
Guided meditation, group/individual reflection, focused mindfulness as continuous foundation for all tools and techniques explored.
Physical expression, weight exchange, touch, visualization, pre-movement impulse, non-verbal communication, authentic movement.
Toning, vocal jam, body resonance, sound healing, rhythm, pulse.
Visualization, focused meditation, energy.
Reframing and training of emotional patterns, thought habits, conditioning, biases.
Participants should prepare for stillness while laying or seated on the floor as well as invigorated movement and play. The day will move between these different energies as well as time to reflect. Please bring layers of clothing for personal comfort and a journal for writing if you like.
