The Embodied Psychology Summit
Online summit took place July 22–26, 2020
Topic: Waking Up Together In These Wild Times: Embodiment, Cellular Consciousness, Trauma, Social Justice, Relational Intimacy, And Embodied Spirituality – An Experiential Session
Humans are a funny species—pack animals that dream of the divine. We have spent the last couple hundred years learning to disconnect from our bodies. The good news is re-connection is at our finger tips. In this workshop, we will work to clarify our understanding and definitions of embodiment and practice the simple, but profound Embodiment Practice that Susan has developed over the last 30 years.
In this presentation, we will work with short, experiential practices to integrate:
The Basics of Embodiment Practice
The Interaction Cycle
We will check in with our bodies around the pandemic and our hopes and aspirations for this time using Body-Mind Psychotherapy tool: the Interaction Cycle. On the basis of this we will examine the issues of trauma, relational intimacy, and social justice that concern our culture so deeply. We will practice Core Flow, the basis of personal and relational presence and fundamental antidote to traumatic dissociation. Finally, we will conclude with a short period of guided Embodied Meditation.
