Empowerment for Cancer: A Somatic Embodied Approach to Strengthening and Healing the Mind and Body

Tuesday, January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, March 24, 2020


People often accept that how we think, affects how we feel. But few consider that how we feel and ‘do’ things in our body also affects our minds. In this class, you’ll learn to use your Body and Mind together in an open, caring, powerful way to improve your emotional, mental and physical well-being.

Through experimentation and play we’ll explore the connections between your body, emotions and distress responses. You’ll learn BodyMind approaches which include gentle movement experiments, body awareness, breathing, meditation, embodiment, somatic education, mindfulness, and the principles of the non-violent art of aikido. Attendance at all sessions is recommended but not an absolute necessity.
