HAVE YOU BEEN COBBLING TOGETHER A RATHER GREAT ASSORTMENT OF WORKSHOPS, BUT HAVE NOWHERE TO BRING IT ALL TOGETHER?
ARE YOU HANGING IN THERE, BUT ALONE AND STRUGGLING TO FIND YOUR EMBODIED INSPIRATION?
ARE YOU INCREDIBLY CREATIVE, YET FAIL TO IMPLEMENT WHAT IS MOST DEAR TO YOUR HEART INTO YOUR PROJECTS?
DO YOU HAVE COUNSELING PRACTICE, ARE A DANCE OR YOGA INSTRUCTOR AND WANT TO OFFER MORE EMBODIED TOOLS AND COMPLETELY RAVISH WITH YOUR PRESENCE, DRAWING MANY MORE PEOPLE TO YOU?
Join our 9-week Online Intensive to Re-ignite Your Practice!
The Somatic BODY process, honed over decades by Christine Cole, UNLOCKS your deepest most reverent, and wildest most unexpected possibilities in embodiment, motion, and research. It makes your mind facile with this intelligence garnered in co-creative learning with the group, nature, and space.
You will be supported by our team and the inherent process, to re-emerge with the riches of well-earned skillsets, clear SomaticBODY systems, a body rich in knowledge; You will be released ready to ignite your practice with integrity and into a body rich in process, for your new life to unfold.
3 Phases of the Intensive
Phase 1: EM-BODY IMMERSION
This is where you get to lay it all down, fully focus on your own embodiment with all of the support of the team and Christine Cole’s teaching within the framework of Somatic BODY. Put Covid, put your own insecurities behind you and just immerse yourself, build or rebuild your inner intelligence, wild intuition and keen focus on learning. We will MOVE, meditate and study. This is the beginning of creating a cohort of committed somatic explorers.
Phase 2: LEARN SOMATICBODY TOOLS
Here you get to look above the fray and learn SBT client assessment, teaching structures to organize the rhythm, weaving and learning process for students in your courses, and ways to set up improvisational research for artists of all kinds to ignite your art. In this phase you will also have some opportunities for breakdown, transformation, and growth, which Christine will use to model the process and you to receive support and guidance in your unfolding. The kettle is thick with experiences that now question the old, and require change.
Phase 3: YOUR RESEARCH, SOMATIC BUSINESS CHALLENGES AND YOUR PLAN
Now that you are getting clearer and inspired, you can invest in research that propels your vision, your projects, your practice.
TAKE A LEAP!
We have one week off, an opportunity to tune into your true inner knowing and passion! The last 2 weeks continue our embodied rituals, inject this research into the group and we get on with the business chores of an embodied business: writing up workshops, applying to conferences, writing blogs, creating systems, laying the bones of performance projects. The last week is celebration, and we close for your PLAN to begin!
