This workshop uses a unique and tested methodology that has grown out of decades of work from the Strozzi Institute (SI), offering an approach that combines neuroscience, somatic practice, action-based communication, and mindfulness. Most of us long for a whole and meaningful life. We want to make a difference, build connected relationships and community. How do we do this when we are also faced with so many challenges, material needs, social inequities, and large questions? Bringing together her extensive experience in somatics, social change, and transforming individual and social trauma, Haines will guide you through this unique and powerful work. Using embodied inquiry, you will: (1) practice naming what matters to you most; (2) explore the embodied conditioning that may be in the way of you reaching your desired outcomes; and, (3) learn the practices of transforming from habit to purposeful choices.
If you are what you practice, is what you are practicing aligned with what you most care about? Aligning with your desires, commitments, and calling is in fact a learnable practice, and the focused outcome of this workshop.
