Skimming the Surface: Movement Healing Workshop supports those overcoming diverse forms of stress and trauma through somatic based expressive movement exercises. This movement journey helps participants release blocked energy causing stress or discomfort in one’s life by integrating movement, emotions and feelings. Valerie Green serves as a guide to help open doorways where each individual will do their personal work, leading to a heart centered and intuitive place, finding a physical expression and release of emotions and energy so a healing process can begin. The workshop may integrate creative movement, improvisation, body reading, energy and breath work, body mind embodiment and consciousness, shamanic journeying, somatic experiencing, free-writing prompts and intuition.
This workshop will culminate with a sound bath to integrate the journey to drop into deep relaxation with the healing vibration of gongs, flow chimes and hand pan. Sound & Kundalini meditation guided by Jennifer Drue, certified Sound Therapy Practitioner and Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
