The Beliefs Our Bodies Carry: Somatic Sensing and Cognitive Repatterning

Nov 15 - 20, 2015 Begins in 4 months
with Michael Clemmens & Renee Jennings

This transformative workshop is a deep dive into the terrain of our so-called “negative” beliefs and fears (also known as introjects), and the embodied process of repatterning, or shifting, the body's energy around these beliefs and fears. This process enables our innate health and wholeness to emerge. Through the co-creation of a powerful group field, you will be working with your own introjects and their physical, emotional, and cognitive patterns — particularly how and where they resonate in your body.

Work Study - Embodied Relational Gestalt

Nov 22 - Dec 20, 2015 Begins in 4 months
with Michael Clemmens

“We develop relationships with ourselves and others through the physicality of our vision, smell, touch, and movement,” says Michael Clemmens. “These relationships, or dances, shape what we believe is possible and how we behave in the present. In this program, our focus will be on the ways in which we create relationships through our bodies. By attending to our present dance with others, we can become more aware of our existing context and optional ways of interacting.

Body and the Erotic Field: A Workshop for Reclaiming Our Healthy Erotic Spirit

Dec 06 - 11, 2015 Begins in 5 months
with Michael Clemmens & Ellen Hoffman

How is it to be a person in your sexual/erotic body-self in a positive way? How can our natural being of Eros, the life force, flow from our excitement to be alive and impact others without abuse of power? How can we bless our energetic self rather than live in shame and fear? We are often faced with the dilemma of inhibiting our physical excitement out of fear that we will be "too much" or be "misunderstood" by others. This shame is usually rooted in some old experience or learning which lead us to diminish our own lively self — our erotic spirit.
