A Benefit for Spirit Rock and Somatic Experiencing®️ Trauma Institute. 

Somatic Experiencing®️ is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress-related conditions developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD. During this weekend retreat, we will discuss how, unbeknownst to us, we may be more influenced by events and circumstances than our ancestors experienced during their lifetimes, which are far out of conscious awareness. However, these lingering, experiential “ghosts” still have powerful influences on our emotions, reactions, behaviors, and choices. By bringing them into awareness and decoding their space-time patterns, we can truly live our lives and (re)claim our destinies as we move toward authentic freedom.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By joining, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.

Continuing Education (CE) credit available. Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. See below for attendance requirements and more information.

Learning Objectives for participating health care professionals-
At the end of the program you will be better able to:
• Describe the difference between top-down and bottom-up processing;
• Describe how to identify behaviors and emotions which may have trans-generational components;
• Describe the role of generational transmission of trauma-based patterns;
• Utilize practices to cultivate “ancestral resources;”
• Describe the possible role of epigenetics in generational trauma transmission;
• Describe how to assess our “hauntings” to decode these generational patterns and support here-and-now presence;
• Utilize practices to bring ancestral awareness into one’s mindfulness and meditation practices;
• Describe how trauma-based perceptions remain fundamentally unchanged until the internal experience of the body changes.
