Getting Unstuck: Moving the Mindful Body
About this workshop
Emotional pain lives in the body. True healing — whether from trauma, stress, or maladapted ways of thinking — incorporates both the physical and the mental.
This immersive, four-day, three-night workshop merges individual and group processing opportunities that encourage you to dig deeper into your brain/body connection. With an emphasis on movement, food, rest and community, we learn how to identify our own psychological guarding patterns and where they live in the body. You will return home equipped with the tools to help process difficult moments—and a community of new friends to help you along the way.
About the location
Sunriver, Oregon provides a beautiful backdrop for healing and reflection. You will have access to hiking, kayaking, and standup paddleboarding in between workshop activities. You will be staying in a beautiful shared house that doubles as a place to process: a literal physical space between you and your old life. Enjoy healthy, delicious food between group discussions, movement intensives and optional private sessions with our highly trained workshop leaders.
About the curriculum
Loosely based around the work of Bessel Van Der Kolk, Carl Rogers, Victor Frankl and others, the workshop focuses on normalizing what most of us feel, but are afraid to confront:
You are not alone and it’s ok to feel this way.
All guided components of this workshop center around the link between the mind and body when processing trauma; structured sessions will focus on mental and physical exercise, food and sleep, with an emphasis on rest in between activities. Optional morning meditations begin at 7 AM, followed by group talk sessions and movement activities. The day closes with a group meal and mindful sleep preparation.
A sample of our planned discussions:
- Reframing dysfunction as self-preservation
- What are you hiding from? Examining our limitations and fears
- Moving past pain: The Reembody Method and mobility
Please note that trauma details will not be mentioned during group sessions. (Private sessions are available for deeper processing.)
