Licia Sky will teach during the Wisdom and Wellbeing Weeks 2023 again at Blue Spirit about the following topics:
Licia will be co-teaching a workshop with Bessel van der Kolk about The Body Keeps the Score.
A workshop for all those working on helping others or themselves to heal from traumatic stress. Awareness of physical sensations forms the very foundation of our human consciousness. Overwhelming experiences are lived out in heartbreak and gut-wrenching sensations, which leave survivors feeling frazzled, on edge, overwhelmed, and shut down. The trauma that started outside is lived out in the theater of the body, and survivors no longer feel safe inside their own skin. Recovery from trauma involves learning how to restore a sense of visceral safety and reclaiming a loving relationship with one’s self.
Rooted in the themes addressed in The Body Keeps the Score, this experiential and didactic course explores how mind and brain are shaped by experience. Learn how your relationship to yourself is intertwined with your synchronicity with those around you while exploring:
• What neuroscience teaches about self-awareness and trauma
• The nature and essence of human attachment
• New treatments that help integrate traumatic memories
• Body-centered approaches to activate our inborn systems for self-regulation and self-compassion.
The second workshop Licia Sky will teach is about: Exploring Expanded Awareness
Experiential mindful exploration of embodied awareness. Through movement, theater exercises, and meditations, learn to listen to your body, your nervous system, your rhythms, and to those of others, in order to expand present time capacity to engage in safety, creativity, and play.
