The Beliefs Our Bodies Carry: Somatic Sensing and Cognitive Repatterning

Sep 07 - 12 Begins in 1 month
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.
