We are in a time when we are frequently faced with emotional overwhelm. Some of those feelings may be rooted further back than we realize. Simultaneously we know that healing is a practice, not a destination. As caregivers, it is more crucial than ever that we tend to our own wellness so we have the capacity to hold space for others. This course offers accessible, gentle somatic practices to acknowledge and to move through painful emotions, including Finger Holds from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Emotional Freedom Technique, Meditation, and Movement. We will engage these processes experientially to ‘metabolize trauma’ so that it does not become lodged in our bodies. I will also be sharing real life examples and stories for passing these techniques along to youth, clients and families to further encourage their utilization.
