Somatic Movement Summit 2022 - For Healing & Stress Release

Somatic Movement Summit 2022 – For Healing & Stress Release

Discover how to de-stress, feel free in your body, and experience healing motion with the power of somatic movement.

When you move about during the day, do you feel discomfort or pain?

The ability to move freely and gracefully is the secret to youth and vitality.

As we age, our bodies tend to become less fluid and mobile — leading to tension, pain, and discomfort, which causes even greater rigidity. What’s even more alarming is that our minds tend to follow suit.

Our modern-day society encourages a lack of mobility. We are chronic sitters — at desks, in cars, on couches. We become set in our ways as we move through life.

As a result, we feel “stuck” inside ourselves. We lack the energy, freedom, and resilience we enjoyed as children, when we ran, jumped, and played for hours every day.

The good news is that we can recapture the fluid movement and resilience we experienced as children — an imperative for fostering lifelong health and wellbeing.

How often do you think about the way you move? Do you have a daily movement practice?

Are you familiar with somatic movement — movement coupled with awareness? It provides a pathway to healing through embodied motion.

During the Somatic Movement Summit…

You’ll not only receive abundant knowledge from world-renowned somatic movement experts…

You’ll also experience firsthand, instructive practices and demonstrations of a variety of disciplines.

Cultivate Your Body’s Innate Intelligence for Increased Vitality, Healing & Fluidity

While modern society tends to focus primarily on cultivating cognitive intelligence… our physical bodies also hold innate intelligence for lifelong vitality and youthfulness.

Somatic movement offers support so you can come so fully into your body that you enter your potential for wholeness, aliveness, and connectedness to all of life — and yourself.

So what does “somatic” mean, exactly?

The word somatic comes from the Greek “soma,” which means “living body” — therefore, somatic refers to the lived experience of being a body.

Somatic movement means to move and sense from the inside out. This summit of expert speakers empowers you to understand this in an experiential, embodied way.

Deliciously subtle, deeply connective, inward-focused movements can completely change how you feel in the world… calming the nervous system, altering your experience of discomfort and distress, and helping to foster balance.

During this 5-day healing journey into somatic movement — with world-renowned speakers and experts — you’ll partake in the union of science with decades of experiential wisdom.

You’ll be guided through revitalizing somatic awareness practices such as micro-movements, grounding, centering, meditation, and breathing — all of which are simple ways to self-regulate your own system.

You’ll discover methods to increase longevity, sensory-based intuition and awareness, which enable you to live a more fully-embodied life.

Embody All of Yourself Through the Medicine of Somatic Movement

“When we dance reflectively, we are in a process of becoming more fully conscious — returning what we have forgotten of our intrinsic perfection.” ~ Sondra Fraleigh

Somatic movement can be described as “being breathed by the body” — letting go of force, trying, and control — and, instead, falling so deeply into resonance with primordial intelligence and sensory awareness that profound wellbeing is the only possible result.

This entails coming home to your own body as a repository of safety, wisdom, and deep knowing.

We do not have to be resigned to inertia as we journey through life — we are designed to stay in motion!

Take yourself to the next level in your somatic awareness and ability and join this unique gathering of insightful expert teachers in the field of conscious motion…

And start enjoying your divine, deliciously aware, movement-filled life.

You’ll be in good hands with summit co-hosts Gayatri Schriefer and Brian Siddhartha Ingle, co-founders of Living Somatics.

In this illuminating series, you’ll be guided into the beautiful world of conscious, embodied motion to discover lifelong practices for vitality, fluidity, and healing.

Our diverse array of seasoned teachers and practitioners will provide insights on the plentiful benefits of somatic movement as well as simple ways to self-regulate your own health systems, including micro-movements, grounding, centering, meditation, and breathing.

The beauty of increasing your body awareness through somatic movement is that it’s so immediate and easy. Mastering somatic movement doesn’t require you to be flexible, have years of formal training or advanced yoga abilities, or visit an enlightened master on a mountaintop in order to get started.

Thank you for joining us for this groundbreaking and experiential series — may it be nourishing and deliciously enlivening for you.

How the Somatic Movement Summit 2022 Can Help You

Would you like to move with more freedom in your body, release “stuck” trauma, and liberate yourself from emotional distress?

If the body holds tension and anxiety about the past or future, it can block the flow of wisdom coming in the moment. By tuning in to your body’s innate sensations, you can open up space for healing and growth to emerge.

Deep healing requires us to release trauma and PTSD, and hold space for transformation and unity. Somatic movement is a rich, body-based, self-healing tradition that empowers you to become more aware of your body’s subtle guidance and inspiration. 

The Somatic Movement Summit invites you to strengthen your connection to your body’s innate intelligence as a pathway to greater resilience, flexibility, and vitality. Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or new to conscious movement, you’ll discover a wide range of somatic modalities to expand your awareness and inspire your healing journey. 

You can practice powerful rejuvenation techniques during this highly experiential, one-of-a-kind event. Most sessions include 10 to 20 minutes of guided practice to help you connect to your body’s wisdom. Plus, each day will conclude with a 75-minute session featuring a full 30 to 45 minutes of experiential somatic movement practices.

If you’ve been operating in survival mode lately, applying somatic movement techniques can help you shift out of the fight-or-flight response, and foster deeper relaxation and vibrancy. 

Through a variety of somatics modalities including Hanna SomaticsTM, Feldenkrais®, Body-Mind Centering®, Biodynamic Osteopathy, Continuum Montage, DancemeditationTM, Dynamic EmbodimentTM, Alexander TechniqueTM, and somatic psychology, you can practice alchemizing sensory overload, and embody a more grounded, balanced, way of living.
