Course Description

Our ability to be aware of our bodies impacts and enhances how we process sensations and memories, how we interact with the world around us, how we interact socially, and how we heal from traumatic events. Explore embodied awareness through experiential exercises and learn how you can foster embodied awareness with clients with a history of trauma.

In this workshop, Licia Sky guides discovery through meditation, movement, theater exercises, and play to show how this awareness affects the therapeutic container— safety, and ability to be present with what emerges within the session. Based on the upcoming book, Come to Your Senses- the Official Companion Workbook for The Body Keeps The Score, this program offers an array of non-verbal, experiential exercises drawn from theater, guided focusing, dance, meditation, yoga, bodywork, and Embodied Voice.

This experiential program can be taken alone or as a follow-up to Bessel van der Kolk, MD's course, Frontiers of Trauma Treatment.
