Coming Home to Our Bodies -A Somatic Experiencing Approach to Wholeness
Coming Home to Our Bodies; A Somatic Experiencing Approach to Wholeness
A Second Sunday Seminar with Barbara Collier, BSN, LPC, SEP
Chronic stress, worry, and trauma can all cause us to live our lives from our survival physiology; constantly on high alert waiting for the other shoe to drop, worried about all the bad things that can happen, rushing around from thing to thing and place to place, and feeling driven by pressure.
It can become difficult to feel connected to our Selves, to know what we really want in life or even in the moment. Somatic Experiencing (SE) is an approach to working with stress and trauma that supports wholeness, returning to our senses, and returning to our bodies. SE is an approach that supports a reunified interconnection and relationship with ourselves, the precious beings in our lives, and our environment.
From an experiential approach, we will explore the nervous system, coming home to your sustainable physiology, and presence.
