Somatic Awareness Practice Group and Workshop 3
Embodied Coaching in Nature
Date: June 27, 2020
Time: 10:00am - 3:00pm
Location: Coal Creek Canyon (address provided upon registration)
For the summer gathering of the Somatic Awareness Practice Group and Workshop Series, we are going to take our embodied coaching experience out on the land! In this workshop we will focus on our deep listening outdoors to better understand how nature can expand and enhance our work. You will be able to translate the expansion and instinctual sensations you have to some very useful awareness tools to bring new possibilities and aliveness to yourself and to your clients!
For the first half of the workshop, we will get acquainted with
some basic nature-connection techniques. Moving and in stillness, we will explore our connection to the elements, the messages we receive and somatic awareness, and experiment with how this may translate into useful information we take forward. After we share a potluck lunch, we will work in triads; applying our learning and newfound awareness.
Our workshop location is up Coal Creek Canyon, easy access to the metro area, about 45 minutes from Denver and 30 minutes from south Boulder and Golden. Carpools can be arranged among participants via the Basecamp area for this Education Group. The land is both open and forested, rocky and meadowed, mostly steep, with easy access to areas not requiring much effort near the house, if you do not wish to go far (including deck and back patio where we shall share lunch). Please be ready to be outside with proper footwear, layers, water, and be able to walk on uneven terrain for a very short distance. Bring a journal or notebook to capture impressions and noticings.
Exact location and other specifics will be provided once you are registered for the event. Plan to register soon if you would like to participate, as space is limited. Please bring something to share for our potluck lunch. We will be outdoors for most of the time, but there will be plenty of shady areas and access to indoors, as needed.
