This is not your ordinary conference fare. This is relational somatics.

This workshop explores the intentional practice of reclaiming our relational, ecological body, which has been forgotten in a world defined by separation from the environment and between communities and cultures. We do this by remembering the basic principles of life itself: enduring interdependent organization, profound mutuality and rich diversity. These key adaptations ensure that every part of the ecology will have a wired-in connection to critical resources for recovery and coherence.

Workshop participants dive deeper into somatic movement exercises that support a collective experience of relationality. In the process, participants mimic the evolutionary journey of life, discovering that the capacities for vitality, sensitivity, mobility, emotionality, and vulnerability are much older than human beings, reaching far back in the Story of Life.

Participants re-energize their bodies in community, creating the needed support to confront trauma and systems of oppression and instead come together to shift culture.

Facilitated by Cedar Landman and Lucién Demaris, Collaborations Group.
