Embodying Nature, Becoming Ourselves: A Somatic and Expressive Protocol

2017-02-01T19:15:26-08:00

Post-Conference Workshop
with Jamie McHugh

noon – 6:00 pm on Mt. Tamalpais, Mill Valley, CA (details TBA)

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:

We are elements of nature: our soma and psyche are reflections of the planet, each intricately embedded in the other. In this era of rapid information processing, high-speed technology, and sedentary workplaces in urban environments, it can be challenging to remember this essential relationship. We can lose our ground and our connection to the planet on the freeway of life, especially when our minds juggle so much input, expectation, and obligation. The body and soul often get left behind in this overwhelm as we shut down and tune out to cope. How do we quiet the monkey mind and receive our environment? And once we are in relationship with place, how do we engage and interact? In this somatic and expressive approach to becoming more fully human as elemental creatures, we combine the technologies of breath, vocalization, contact, movement and stillness to occupy our soma/psyche and open the portals of perception. We discover how tree, rock, sky, and water reflect aspects of our being by embodying and expressing them. Spontaneous dances, intuitive songs, creative writings and inner contemplations effortlessly emerge as we invite in the spirit of place through this sensory motor encounter.

This daylong workshop on Mount Tamalpais combines practice, theory and application to provide you with a set of somatic-expressive tools and a conceptual map for embodying nature as well as a template for guiding others. This approach has been of particular interest to dancers, environmentalists, movement educators, and eco-psychologists.

LOGISTICS:

The entire afternoon workshop will be spent outdoors on the verdant hills of MT. Tamalpais State Park. Please dress in appropriate layers and wear study walking shoes (closed toe with good grip) and hat. Bring a bagged lunch, snacks and full water bottle.  Further details will be sent one week prior.

PRESENTER:

Jamie McHugh, RSMT is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, somatic coach, dancer, and artist living on the California coast. The creator of Somatic Expression® – Body Wisdom for Modern Minds, Jamie has guided somatic-expressive encounters with the natural world for the past 25 years. “Embodying Nature” has been presented through Tamalpa Institute in Marin, Breitenbush Hot Springs in Oregon, Alanus University in Germany, Orchidea Lodge in Switzerland, and at Sea Ranch, California.

Reconnecting with the Living Earth through the Work That Reconnects

2017-01-22T20:06:54-08:00

Post Ecopsychology Conference Workshop

with
Molly Young Brown, M.A., M.Div and Constance Washburn M.A.

9:00 am to 3:00pm
Fort’s Barn, Petaluma (Details about location TBA)

We watch with horror as our world spirals into crisis and our nation into fear, hatred, and confusion.  In this workshop we will share our passions, dreams, and anguish for the world, and reaffirm our love for the Earth and one another. Together we will seek the courage and capacity to stand up to the forces of divisiveness and greed, and help bring about a Great Turning to a Life Sustaining Society for future generations. We will address systemic racism and climate change, among other challenges.

The Work That Reconnects, pioneered by Joanna Macy, helps us to uncover and experience our innate connections with each other and the healing powers of the web of life. This highly experiential and interactive work draws perspectives and practices from systems thinking, deep ecology, and many spiritual traditions that reveal our inter-being through space and time. It reframes our pain for the world as evidence of our mutual belonging and hence our power to take action on behalf of life. It awakens stamina and buoyancy to live with full awareness of both the Great Turning and the Great Unraveling, and to embrace the uncertainty of this planet-time. The Spiral of the Work moves through Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth, helping us identify the strengths and resources we can mobilize, in collaboration with others, to act for the sake of all beings.

LOCATION: Fort’s Barn, Petaluma, CA
