Pain Management though Mind/Body Awareness and Somatic Movement

Wednesday, June 21, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, July 26, 2023

Is pain physical or emotional? The answers may surprise you!

As we learned in our first class, our minds affect our bodies and our bodies affect our minds. Together, they can be used in open, caring, powerful ways to improve our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.

During this class we’ll dive deeper, exploring somatic approaches to use with your acute or chronic pain. We’ll work together with the physical and emotional components of pain to change how you experience the many types of pain possibly encountered throughout your cancer journey.

There’s a saying which states, Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Great! But how do we make this a reality? We’ll use BodyMind healing approaches including gentle movement experiments, body awareness techniques, breathing, meditation, embodiment, the principles of aikido, mindfulness, as well as many somatic movement & education skills we started exploring in our first level class.

Attendance at all sessions is recommended but not an absolute necessity.

Previous attendance at any of Rich’s level one courses is required.

Program Dates: Wednesdays, June 7, 14, 21, 28, July 5, 12, 19, 26
