SOMATIC NATURE – ein Movement Medicine Workshop

Movement Medicine and Polyvagal wisdom

Uniting Ancient Wisdom and Evidence-Based Science

mit David MOONEY

This weekend workshop is a place to RECHARGE YOU through a weaving of somatic practice, polyvagal exercises, free movement, nature’s teachings, simple compassionate guidance, inspiring music and authentic connection in community. 

It is so important to pause, dance and recharge particularly in these unique times where there is so much change, noise, conflicting opinions and environments of distress. This is a space to exhale, shake off and tune into the deeper sanity of nature’s rhythms. 

 This is all about meeting these times resourced and self connected, rather than from a self protective posture. You will be given simple, short practices to tone your nervous system (like toning muscles) towards empowered relaxation through the lens of the Polyvagal perspective of Deb Dana and Dr. Porges.

An exploration of the Wisdom of the Elements

This course will contain:
– Resources of connection to somatic intelligence and medicine of movement
– The shamanic wisdom of nature’s teachings
– Science backed efficacy of Polyvagal practices to tone your nervous system
– The vibrant inspiration and alongsideness of a small community to explore the power of practice

Many people who have practiced these techniques say that they feel transformed, and they never would have imagined that something so simple could be so effective. 
Through movement, breathing, and polyvagal techniques, you will learn to:
– Increase your stress resilience and renew your energy
– Reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia
– Connect to your inner self and others
– Improve relationships and empathic abilities
– Improve performance in personal and professional activities
