Advanced Programs
Advanced Training in Embodied Leadership and Somatic Coaching
Go Even Deeper Into Your Journey
Strozzi Institute offers ongoing learning opportunities for deepening in Somatic Coaching, embodied leadership, and cultivation of the self. These programs are largely focused on mastery, deepening both individual and team leadership, as well as coaching skills. These courses and practices further an embodied sensibility and cultivate your human capacity for vision, empathy, and using conflict as a generative force, and grow your ability to hold contradictions and stay in life-affirming action. 

The prerequisites are listed below per course. Though some courses do not require any previous participation with Strozzi Institute, most participants in our Advanced Programs have at least taken Embodied Leadership Level One (formerly Leadership in Action One), the first program in our
Embodied Leadership Pathway.
Somatics, Trauma, and Resilience
Prerequisite: Embodied Leadership Level One (Formerly Leadership in Action One) or School of Embodied Leadership, both found in our Embodied Leadership Pathway.

Transform your own trauma. Remove blocks that hinder your leadership abilities. Deepen your somatic transformation work with clients. This course is designed for leaders and coaches who want to successfully heal personal and collective trauma. Trauma deeply impacts our own and our client’s sense of safety, connection and dignity. The symptoms of these experiences—such as lack of trust, sense of shame, need to protect, hypervigilance and dissociation—tend to last long after the experiences are over. Our proven somatic methodology transforms survival reactions and traumatic experiences that have long been withheld so they can complete and mend. Gain the freedom to make new choices and move toward an empowered vision of your life.

Take your leadership to the next level of mastery and deepen your understanding of somatic theory in this advanced course led by the originator of embodied leadership, Richard Strozzi-Heckler.

This year, the theme is “The Unbounded State” and explores the rich terrain of somatic openings as an integral part of awakening and creating a fulfilling life.

We are inviting individuals who are committed as lifelong learners to the next embodied declaration of a compelling life.

Somatic Bodywork Seminar Level Two is designed for practicing coaches, therapists, and bodyworkers who want to deepen their understanding of the soma and how we can transform through the body.
