Embodying Anatomy, Embodying Resources

Somatic Movement, Embodied Meditation and Playfulness

Without leaving his house he knows the whole world.
Without looking out of his window, he sees the way of heaven.

Dancing with a multitude of somatic approaches, we mobilise our curiosity
and discover experiential anatomy.

To support this we will establish the art of witnessing, resourcing and
self-regulation skills that make being in the body and in our own skin
comfortable and pleasurable. Working with a map of the cells, membrane and
fluids, organs, bones, and muscle tissue as well as the ancient knowing of
a fluid endocrine and nervous system, we come to acknowledge how each body
has its own unique language and orchestration.

An experiential embodied meditation training devised for those working with
others in professional capacities, and for self exploration It is designed
to support you in the relational aspects of being with, supporting other,
modelling and leading from within your own lived moving body. While
anatomical, neuro-scientific findings and somatic techniques input is
offered, we will be recognising how the inner somatic terrain, witnessed,
allowed and celebrated becomes the source, perception and reflection from
our own support for being here.

It is experientially based in that whatever you discover comes from a
place of curiosity and play.

As we listen, move, touch, trust, express and sense the body consciously
every cell is enlivened, Communities of cells organise into tissues make
up different body systems that support each other in order to maintain a
smooth running organism, called the body .All of these cells are working
together for the greater good and health of the whole body .Each community
of cells or body systems have a particular consciousness or quality .When
we overuse one system such as the muscles and nervous system as we tend to
do in the fast paced life styles .these systems become exhausted or even
stressed. The consciousness or information from the body system is like a
radio and when it is stressed it becomes out of tune or off rhythm. To help
tune the instrument, the body we will be discovering how we can access and
recover use of other body systems to resource and support our movement in
life. Bones, for e.g., are of great support for the ground of movement and
their qualities of structure and connectedness are useful and essential for
underlying stability.

Its a down-under approach, we allow the body to inform us through its
language of sensation, rather than the head attempting to track the body. We will use anatomical pictures and models to support our orientation of entering the body consciously, move from our anatomy and be informed through a direct perception.

Sensing, expressing, moving and touching consciously supports learning to
perceive, and recover the innate resources of our embodied anatomy. We will
play with finding language for our experiences, welcoming and developing
trust in an ability to access and find resources within the living
tissues of our bodies.
