Join the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) for a workshop with Peter Levine. The workshop is happening April 28-29, 2018, from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm at Hotel Whitcomb (1231 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103).
Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. In this workshop, Dr. Levine, the founder of Somatic Experiencing, demonstrates how Somatic Experiencing addresses trauma, seeing it as the consequence of trapped survival energy.
The Somatic Experiencing approach gently facilitates the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. Through a combination of theoretical explanation, demonstrations, and body-oriented exercises, participants begin to develop a deep and intrinsic body awareness that helps to draw them into the vibrant experience of life-energy, flow, contact with the eternal now, and wholeness.
Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
