Full Bio & Programs
For healing professionals, those interested in becoming healing professionals, and everyone interested in personal and spiritual growth.
Experience your aliveness and power as you become aware of and heal old defenses and the wounds they protect. SomaSoul Somatic Expressive Therapy is a mind-body healing modality that integrates the power of Body-Centered Gestalt Psychotherapy, the heart of spiritual practice, and the creativity of the expressive arts. This work transforms the limiting beliefs, behaviors, and challenging emotions living within our body by bringing compassion and consciousness to our experience.
Like all animals, we are blessed with defenses, yet these defenses can become habitual. Whether we react to others with the prickliness of a porcupine or run with the speed of a rabbit when we’re frightened, our defenses are meant to be honored and then released. In this workshop, we move toward freedom as we let go of restrictive patterns and uncover vitality and wholeness.
Note A series of four workshops can be taken either individually for personal development or collectively as part of SomaSoul: Somatic Expressive Therapy Level 1 Training. For more information, visit www.leveninstitute.com.
