"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves."

- from "Wild Geese" by Mary Oliver

The five indigenous technologies embedded in us by nature for physiological and psychological health are Breath, Vocalization, Contact, Movement and Stillness.

Somatic Expression®, a user-friendly method drawing upon 45 years of both personal and professional research in various somatic-expressive disciplines, combines these five objective somatic technologies with subjective personal experimentation to tend and befriend our inner ecosystem.

The cultivation of our somatic garden with these five enlivens and brightens our inner sensing, contributing to a feeling of safety, belongingness and self-confidence.

This 3-hour overview will offer a content-rich, relaxed space to explore many possibilities for collaborative inquiry with your soma.

We will alternate practice of each of the five technologies with reflection and theory.

Video playbacks will be provided for each participant to continue their own self-study with the practices offered.

Open to all levels of experience.
