Somatic Psychology Summit 2023

Somatic Psychology Summit 2023

Would you love to be liberated from deeply ingrained fight-or-flight reactions or routine triggers…

… while simultaneously acquiring effective tools to help your clients overcome persistent emotional distress and lingering trauma?

In the continually changing realm of mental health, the integration of somatic movement, traditional cognitive trauma therapy, and mindfulness emerges as a guiding light for profound healing.

This innovative, blended approach is becoming a foundational element for trailblazers in the trauma field, encompassing psychologists, therapists, social workers, and other mental health professionals.

The 2023 Somatic Psychology Summit invites you to explore these expanding avenues of connecting to the body’s innate intelligence as a pathway to greater mental resilience, physical flexibility, and spiritual vitality — for you and your clients.

Why Attend the Somatic Psychology Summit 2023

Somatic Psychology Summit 2023You can think of the field of somatic psychology as an amalgam of deeply felt, self-aware movements integrated with cognitive therapy, meditation, and bodywork…
… empowering you to share insights and expertise that can help your clients heal and become whole after loss, grief, or trauma.

Of course, as a healer, you must first live the somatic experience yourself, tapping into your own innate embodied intelligence for nervous system regulation before you can safely and effectively guide clients through therapeutic processes.

During the Somatic Psychology Summit 2023 you’ll gain access to powerful techniques for internalizing your own somatic skills as you learn to dissolve blockages — for you and your clients — that can have huge long-term negative effects on health.

You'll get to learn from some of today’s most highly sought-after somatic psychology experts and teachers — including Dr. Martha Eddy, Staci K. Haines, Joshua Sylvae, PhD, Amy Weintraub, Susan Aposhyan, Maci Daye, Mukara Meredith, Rob Fisher, Christine Caldwell, PhD, Dr. Ilene Naomi Rusk, Gisele Fernandes-Osterhold, and more.

What You'll Learn During the 2023 Somatic Psychology Summit

You'll be guided through simple somatic psychology practices to move you beyond stuck energy into easeful states infused with vitality and relaxed alertness.

Somatic therapy is presented as a dynamic practice involving the restoration of fragmented or wounded parts, trauma release, and consciousness shifts. The incorporation of art and movement into therapy is highlighted as a means to update skills, providing practitioners like you with a broader and more effective toolkit.

During the Somatic Psychology Summit 2023, you’ll discover:

  • You can heal trauma and come home to your embodied, authentic self by addressing the 3 most important factors that are held in the body
  • How to stay grounded and connected to your own innate somatic intelligence while working with clients as a trauma therapist
  • Somatic interventions like interoception, polyvagal theory, and nervous system regulation can benefit those with chronic illnesses like Alzheimer’s
  • Tapping into oscillation — micro-movements throughout the body’s cells and systems — can support subtle but profound support for self-regulation and self-soothing
  • And much more…
