This 4-day intensive course, designed by Staci K. Haines, author of "The Politics of Trauma: Somatics, Healing and Social Justice", is for coaches or leaders who want to increase their resilience and successfully address deeper aspects of transformation. We define transformation as the ability to take new actions aligned with your values and vision, even under the same old pressures.
Many people have experiences that deeply impact their sense of safety, connection, and/or significance. The symptoms of these experiences (lack of trust, sense of shame, need to protect, dissociation) tend to last long after the experiences are over.
When we have been hurt in a significant way, we can try to "manage" our survival behaviors, but unless transformed directly, they will emerge under pressure (both good and bad pressures) every time.
Somatics understands the workings of both individual and social trauma. In this course, we will increase resilience, help to transform survival reactions into new choices, and learn to "blend" with things that have long been withheld, so that they can complete and mend.
