10-Week Somatic Practice Group 

Beginning JUNE 8th, 2022

Registration now open​ 

 

There are stories of despair circulating as rapidly as the air around us, sometimes we feel these stories more than we feel the breeze. It makes sense that we would tune out, shut down, block the feelings that are too much. And yet in doing so we make it harder to feel the wild joy of being alive, of being in our bodies. We lose touch with ourselves, and with the world around us. What does it mean to be fully alive in this political and ecological moment? 

 

These stories shape our sense of self and what we think, believe and feel is possible; they become embedded in our muscles and tissues.

 

Over the course of 10 weeks we will explore the stories that shape our lives and work to come back to life, to engage our senses, and longings, our desires, and to move with and from a sense of aliveness. We will explore the possibilities that open when we are able to tap into our hopes and imaginations. Participants will be guided through a series of individual and relational somatic practices, and collective story-telling, designed to move us beyond the embodied patterns that keep us constricted and towards the world we know is possible. 

 

What to expect: 

  • practices to deepen connection to your body​

  • practices to deepen connection to others​

  • a deeper sense of what has shaped your habits, beliefs, and trigger​

  • support to access a wider emotional range and more aliveness​

  • support to access embodied imagination for the sake of collective change​

  • and lots of playfulness and connection!

Weekly Practice Group 

Tuesdays at 7:30pm

This group is for those who have worked with me (Zoë) in the past and for those who have equivalent experience within the generative somatics or Strozzi Institute methodology. 

 

This group meets weekly to practice, move, deepen, and heal together as a collective body. It is a practice space for ongoing depth and exploration as somatic bodies living under the current conditions. The sessions are shaped by the group and by what is alive and needed within the collective.  Session content is intended to serve each person's needs as much as possible while holding the needs of the group as a whole.

PAST

Coming Back To Ourselves and Each Other

a somatic healing group for white identified social change organizers and cultural workers

During this 11 week healing arc, we will work through the body to become aware of and heal contractions shaped by oppression, whiteness, and social conditioning, and work to support you to embody what you most care about-  even under the pressure of this political moment.

By recognizing and exploring how your body is shaped to survive we are clued into what new skills need to be developed and what needs to heal through the body to find more freedom, choice, and empowerment for ourselves and for how we show up in our communities.

By focusing on the ‘how’ we remind ourselves and each other that there is a path forward, toward collective liberation and transformation.
