Mindfulness of Mind and Body: Bolstered resilience through somatic awareness

 

Description of Workshop:

In this workshop we will explore the mind/body connection by focusing on mindfulness of body. Our bodies are constantly giving us information that is unique from the perceptions of our cognitive mind and our interpretations of reality. Our mind may tell us that we are angry, but in our bodies we may be trying to stay safe from perceived threat.

Sometimes feeling sensations allow us to discover what we did not know was there, and for our students noting sensations in the body allows for a somatic awareness that is frequently lost in the pace and values of our society. Teaching students somatic awareness teaches a different kind of self-awareness, one that both empowers and builds resilience.
