Thirdspace Somatic Practice Group
10-Week Somatic Practice Group 

beginning JUNE 8th 2022

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 and sensations

-practices to deepen connection to others

-a deeper sense of what has shaped your habits, beliefs, and triggers

-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!
