In this experiential workshop, Rosario will guide participants through various somatic artistic interventions in order to learn how to safely resource and support trauma healing.
Presented by Tamalpa Institute
Sunday, April 11, 9AM-12PM PDT
Recovering from trauma requires that we recuperate the capacity to inhabit our bodies. The Tamalpa Life/Art Process offers an effective therapeutic model that not only recognizes the body in its full dimension, but also facilitates connection to preverbal and symbolic aspects of self, which are beneficial when working with trauma. The language of the arts provides a world beyond analytical thought and conventional communication, allowing for a path to access and give form to sensations, emotions, memories, and images that may not be able to be expressed solely in everyday language.
In this experiential workshop, Rosario will guide participants through various somatic artistic interventions in order to learn how to safely resource and support trauma healing. Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Understand the value of combined somatic and artistic approaches for healing trauma.
- Learn basic Somatic-artistic techniques and interventions for processing trauma.
- Develop awareness around self-care & resources to modulate arousal.
This workshop is open to anyone interested in healing trauma for themselves or others. No previous dance or art experience is required.
