Somatic Healing with Nature: Transforming Trauma and Living into Aliveness

May 4 @ 9:00 am - May 5 @ 6:00 pm


This course will explore somatic healing with nature. Somatic experiencing practices are a skillful and safe way to heal trauma. We will learn how nature offers a healing container to support the transformation and healing of trauma. Building on the practices of mindfulness with nature we will learn how to become present to the stored traumas stuck within the body, connect to the inherent potential to heal, and learn to release the unhealthy patterns of trauma to experience the fullness of our aliveness. You as the student will be invited to work to integrate these practices into the healing of your own trauma and consider ways in which your continued healing can inform ways to integrate these teachings and practices into the therapeutic container.
