SOME DETAILS OF OUR DAY:
The day is an integration of therapeutic somatic work and yoga postures and breathing to explore the mind/body/emotion connection and shift the stress or trauma we hold in our bodies. We will work with each of the seven chakras, moving between an introduction to the emotional/somatic themes of each Chakra, yoga practice and meditation facilitated by Jacqui and individual and group therapy work using movement and yoga poses, voice and breathe, facilitated by Helen. The day has the foundations of safety and choice that are critical to working with trauma, so it is up to each participant to decide how much they want to work with their individual issues. What we have discovered in our previous work, is that the themes of other group members help the whole group and deepen safety and connection for everyone. Vulnerability is one of our greatest healing tools when experienced with safety and support.
Helen and Jacqui have a deep commitment to ensuring that this is a well-supported environment and have co-facilitated in this way previously. The title we’ve given the workshop recognises that our focus is on healing rather than trauma – whilst your emotion is welcome in the day and we are aware that our bodies hold on to a lot of issues we often don’t even realise we hold, it can be liberating to work with the wisdom in our bodies that helps release emotion. We also recommend that for those of us who have experienced abuse and trauma that you seek your own individual therapy, as the day will not have space for the telling of trauma stories. Much as we want to honour what people have been through, and there will be a process to set your intention for the day at the very beginning, we want you to focus on your body and emotion. We are all trained to live in our heads, and whilst the cognitive has value, it will not be the focus of our work. Adjustments will not be given unless specifically invited.
