Breath, Sound, Movement, & Emotional Release

TOOLS TO RECOVER FROM STRESS & TRAUMA

This experiential SomaSound course gives clinicians the opportunity to develop an understanding of the power and the pitfalls of using movement & vocal sound to relieve stress and unreleased trauma.

Regulate your body. Quiet your mind.
Deepen and expand awareness.
Find and release the stuck places in your body.

Course material includes: describing the link between the human voice, movement, and the limbic system; the fight-flight-freeze responses of trauma on the body from the work of Levine, Porges, and Van der Kolk; how vocal sound and movement can impact general well-being, including as a tool for mindfulness and vagal stimulation.

Participants will be taken through simple exercises to release tension and shift into a calm and focused alpha brainwave state as well as deeper states of awareness. They will experience how vowel and consonant sounds, as well as free and bound flow in movement, are used to express emotion as well as to create a sense of playfulness and freedom. A method for accessing and releasing “stuck’ or unexpressed emotion will be demonstrated; cautions and contraindications will be discussed.
