Workshops & Seminars

 I periodically offer workshops and seminars, often in advance of seasonal shifts.  See below for the current offerings:

 

"The Body Keeps the Score":

A Study Group

Written by one of the world’s experts on trauma (Bessel van der Kolk), The Body Keeps The  Score offers a bold new paradigm, with treatment options based in increased body awareness.  The book is compelling, thorough and accessible, and its stories and information provide a practical foundation for embodied practice, whether you’re working with trauma or not.  

 

I am excited to host an in-depth discussion of this important book.  I love having a reason to reduce our screen time during the week, which also contributes to our self-care.  But rather than a plain study group, this 12-week course includes discussion + deep embodied practice, to ensure that the content of the book sticks, instead of being just interesting information.  We explore 2 chapters/week via discussion, movement, and processing.  In a fluid order, we'll have:

  • 40-60 minutes of discussion on the book 

  • 40 minutes of embodied practice (similar to my Exploratory Movement class)

  • 10-20 minutes of processing discussion

The course also includes: 

  • An online forum where take-home reflection prompts or meditations are posted.

  • Recordings of the discussion portion of the course.  Participants unavailable for the live discussion get the recording and can attend one of my weekly online classes for the embodiment practice.  

  • Participants are welcome to come to any of my weekly classes as an add-on to the course (by donation).

  • A maximum of 12 participants.

Time: 5.30 - 7.30pm EST (2.30 - 4.30pm PST)

Duration: 1.5 - 2 hour meetings on Wednesdays

Individual TARE Seminars

TARE stands for: The Atmospheric Re-Entry Seminar.  “Tare” is also another word for a re-set, starting from now.  Acknowledging where you’ve been, where you are and planning your direction from here.  

This 75 minute extended private consultation is tailored to your needs.  

I can see people live or remotely for 6 of these seminars during the listed dates.

Using your authentic voice

Diving into vocal work can help you and your team communicate more clearly, give information with a clear voice while navigating the stress or anxiety of presentations, convey meaning without straining or injuring your voice, remain authentic while conveying information you have talked about a thousand times, and gain and retain the courage to remain present while standing in front of a group of people.  This seminar addresses all these concerns.  

 

In this seminar, I work with you and your group to clarify intention through the voice, I share techniques and approaches to speak free of strain, maintain the health of your voice apparatus, and help to build or develop your command of the room.  I limit the number of participants, to be able to give more personal attention.  

This course includes:

 

- Half day & full day options

- All handouts and supplies

- Participant access to me for questions and processing up to one month post-seminar

- When offered via live stream, a recording of the seminar.

 

Duration: 3 or 6 hours

Location: At your location (when safety protocols allow), or via Zoom

Investment: $525 (3 hour)                                $900 (6 hour) 

“Endless thanks for the engaging, informative, and inspiring seminar!  I had many 'ah ha' moments and revelations; my work will be forever changed.  Sharing your enthusiasm and gift in voice training completely shifted my awareness of this crucial medium that is rarely 'taught'.  Even though I considered myself a fairly confident and effective communicator, you provided a sea of value that is a real game-changer.  I will be recommending you to my peers and colleagues!

“I really enjoyed the movement warms ups at the beginning and was quite fascinated by the individual work and training my ear while listening to others.  The question period at the end of class was also immensely helpful.  Thanks so much for staying late to address our individual experiences.  You provided so much variety and effective exercise.  Thank you again!”

  • The four major diaphragms in the torso work together to facilitate breathing, regulate our organ function, and when working well, they can help address pain, strain and stress throughout the entire body.  This limited-run course focuses on each of the diaphragms (the soft palate, the shoulder girdle, the respiratory diaphragm and the pelvic floor), with a mindful practice each week, and access to online discussion to get your questions answered.  

 

The course includes: 

  • 4 weekly hour-long practices focusing on each diaphragm in greater depth (live stream and recorded)

  • The recordings of these sessions (whether you can attend the live sessions or not) 

  • Membership in a private online support forum to discuss the practices from the course
