Module 1

Our program begins with:
Module One

Level one is all about you. Learning to listen to your body. Becoming familiar with the “soma” –the body as you experience it from within. The idea is that before you can teach something you have to become it. Here you will learn how to establish safety within your nervous system and get grounded enough to share this wisdom with others.

You will learn:
◦ How to create a safe container for healing
◦ How to self- regulate and have more awareness in your day to day life
◦ How to use writing as a tool for healing
◦ Breathing exercises for easing anxiety
◦ The ABC’s of trauma recovery
◦ The role of touch in the healing process
◦ The importance and value of the body mind connection

This course is offered as a combined online and group training program in the lush mountains of Northern Thailand. The next dates are 8-12 November 2019 . The group training will take place at an elephant eco- lodge over looking the river.
