Somatics Immersion
Fall 2023

Practicing the embodiment we need

to create the world we want

In this multi-week group you will be introduced to a series of foundational somatic practices, mostly from the lineage of generative somatics.

 

In a small group setting, participants will be guided through a series of individual, partnered, and group somatic practices, designed to move us beyond the embodied patterns that keep us constricted and towards more life, more connection, and more possibility.

Somatics is pragmatic. It's about making new muscle memories and neuro-pathways that help us act more in alignment with our values instead of always reacting from our protective patterns. Shifting cycles, creating new possibilities. Unraveling old stories. 

This group is for those new to somatics as well as those who want to continue to deepen their practice. We will work to heal, transform, and move towards the change we long for individually and collectively, while learning about the lineage and theory of the field of somatics. 

What to expect: 

-individual, partnered, and group practices to support you in moving towards your deepest longings and to live in alignment with your values.

-relational embodiment practices to deepen connection to others

-a deeper embodied sense of what has shaped your patterned reactions, beliefs, and triggers

-identify the impacts of trauma, oppression, and social conditioning on your current embodiment

-begin to shift the embodied patterns that keep you stuck  

-support to access a wider emotional range, more aliveness, and more joy

 

-practices of responding from a grounded, centered place, even under pressure

 

-re-establishing an internal sense of safety, dignity, and belonging 

Facilitated by Zoë April (she/her), a white trans woman living in the southern swamps of Gainesville, FL on Seminole land. ​

This group is open to anyone interested in somatic practice, and it will always center the experience of those on the margins, particularly queer and trans folks, bipoc, change-makers, and cultural workers navigating the complexities of this political moment.

Level 2 Practice Group 

An ongoing community of practice 

Want to take your practice to the next level, and continue moving toward your commitment within the support of community?

It is a 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 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.

Wednesdays 11-12:15 am EST on Zoom

*This is a weekly commitment, not a drop-in space.

Open to anyone who has completed a 10 week group, worked with me in the past, or has equivalent experience with the generative somatics or Strozzi Institute methodology
