The Beliefs Our Bodies Carry: Somatic Sensing and Cognitive Repatterning

  • Esalen Institute 55000 Cabrillo Hwy Big Sur, CA, 93920 United States (map)

November 15-20, 2105

Esalen Institute

This transformative workshop is a deep dive into the terrain of our so-called “negative” beliefs and fears (also known as introjects), and the embodied process of repatterning, or shifting, the body's energy around these beliefs and fears. This process enables our innate health and wholeness to emerge. Through the co-creation of a powerful group field, you will be working with your own introjects and their physical, emotional, and cognitive patterns — particularly how and where they resonate in your body. Attending to sensation and energy, mindful awareness practices, and movement will comprise a significant part of this didactic and experiential Gestalt-based workshop. We will practice methods to repattern our bodies on neurological, energetic, and muscular levels through a synthesis of Gestalt theory and practice, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and energy psychology. The design of this workshop will include some theory, large and small group exercises, and discussion.
