Somatic Listening -Take Back Your Body
Your Core Self is oriented through only one precious focal point: your body. And it is your exquisitely sentient nervous system that regulates how you experience reality. All therapies are received, rejected or integrated based on how secure your body feels. Your body, not your divinity, has the final say. So let’s begin the journey of honoring exactly what your body has to show you.
You will end this 16 week training with new somatic awareness, somatic tools, community and Listening Partners you can connect with for life. You will also get an online logo showing completion, that you can use anywhere.
Let Me Introduce You
(Wait, I have a body? And it does WHAT?!)
The cornerstone to ALL healing is knowing what your body’s limits and gifts are. And this is where we unveil all the gifts. You will start to take back your body and its self healing, generative abilities that have been hidden from you.
Gifts of the Body
When we give the body what it has needed from birth it blooms. And you will reclaim and repattern that energy so you move out of past trauma towards future freedom.
What you needed was a mother who was physically safe, attuned to you, supported by her own family and your father and protected by a parent friendly culture. But that likely wasn’t what you had. As you create safety your body’s intelligence will immediately begin to undo the armor it has accumulated.
Breaking The Trance of Silence
Here we discover the art of both clienting and tracking your client! Finding agency in how your body uses authentic connection. And sheer confidence in being able to direct another towards their own intelligence. These are the solid skills that will support you forever as therapist, parent, change-maker.
Healing The Core Wound
As you become more and more comfortable with how you and your client’s body deactivates trauma you will step into advanced techniques that effectively nudge you both towards healing primary wounds and patterns that have kept you in lock down. This brings you ever closer to Sovereignty.
Strategies of Belonging
Here you will find, and name, what was lost. You will also find what was instilled in you and that you are still loyal to, that you do not want. You will begin to replace trauma bonds to family and society with healthy bonds for rapid relief and empowerment as you take back your body.
Meeting Despair With a Smile
As you discover agency over your thoughts and feelings you can begin to make decisions and take action from your Core. This requires vigilance and dedication to not give in to old habits. Your Listening Partnerships become the solid foundation within which you practice being sovereign.
The Art of Connection Everywhere
For the lucky few, true connection is an art we learn over a lifetime. But you are already doing it! With focused practice and feedback you will have the skill level you need to take Somatic Listening into all your relationships. We will look at all those applications including clients and groups.
The formula is uniquely simple. The effects are truly profound and lasting.
Somatic Listening is a method of trauma deactivation. It gives you an immediately accessible formula, based on authentic connection with others, to offload accumulated trauma and stress.
By creating a secure frame (a safe container you should have had with your mother), your body will begin to deactivate old hurts through specific spontaneous movements.
Following this deactivation your brain will repattern and naturally turn its attention to both present time and resolving any issues with many available solutions.
The other side to Somatic Listening is the Listener or Responder. They hold a very special and specific role.
It is by taking equal part in both these roles that your body and brain repattern and you find yourself less stressed, less pulled on by the past, more flexible and available to the present moment and then actualizing your purpose.
This foundational training has somehow eluded even somatic therapists. And it certainly is not found in any mainstream methods. Yet it is crucial.
Why It Is Essential
We are oriented through only one precious focal point: our body. And it is our exquisitely sentient nervous system that regulates how we actually experience reality. The same external reality can be either hell or heaven depending on our brain and nervous system.
All therapies are received, rejected or integrated based on how secure your body feels. Your body, and nothing else, has the final say.
I therefore give this method to all my clients and students and include it as the foundation in trainings. I also teach it to other trainers to use in their trainings.
This Unique Approach Is Not JUST Somatic
It is a combination of attachment therapy, life review and resolution, brain repatterning, somatic cues and nervous system activation AS WELL AS actual real live closeness with Listening Partners. These partnerships are precious and can last a lifetime. Because it is so unique and seeks to meet the wholeness of our humanity, I have known many somatic therapists who also do this work, personally. This method teaches us to not just be allies but be truly connected, as we were always meant to be.
