Four weeks, June 15-July 10. Meeting times TBD

Our social interaction happens through video these days, and we may be doing it for a while.

Through weekly live small-group practice sessions and bi-weekly private conferences, this course helps dancers, teachers, entrepreneurs (and others) communicate through the camera--to feel relaxed and natural, to find their voice, and to create a vibrant on-camera experience.

Limited seating. Registration opens June 5.

Somatic Experiencing Personal Sessions
Somatic Experiencing Personal Sessions
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to treating trauma, resolving anxiety, and generally feeling safe and comfortable in one’s own body.

SE focuses on the body sensations, images that arise, and movement. You don't have to tell your life story, or much of anything. We work with what is, right now.

Results include a sense of well-being, self-compassion, and increased resilience. It is a very gentle, effective method.

I’m a Somatic Experiencing® (SE) Practitioner. I’ve long included SE work in my dance coaching. Folks like it–they feel the benefits. One client’s 30-year pain went away. Another reduced her fear of being seen. Another became close to her family again. It makes my heart glad to see the healing.

Sessions are conducted via Zoom for distance clients. Sessions last about an hour. It is recommended to take a nap afterwards.

If you’ve had challenging experiences in your life, if you feel that they haven’t been resolved, if you find yourself being repeatedly triggered, SE may help you.

I am making these sessions available at a special price as things are so hard right now for so many people.

To discover more, I invite you to email me or book a brief complimentary call. We’ll chat.

Some days it's like we are surrounded by threats. Everywhere we turn, pandemics, governments gone wild, family on our nerves, fear and anger everywhere. It's scary, and it's hard to feel calm in the face of all this. Our nervous systems get get out of whack. We feel frustrated and anxious. How do we fight what we can't even see?

Tuning In comes from a Somatic Experiencing® (SE) perspective. It's is a half-hour chillout session focused on nervous system regulation. It is designed to ease anxiety and restore wellbeing. We use gentle movement, breath, and body-based strategies to bring calm in the here and now. These strategies can be used any time to help the body feel more relaxed and grounded. Each class is recorded (instructor view). Each recording is available for one week.
