We look forward to be able to support you in your meditative journey with these expert skills of somatic science and practice!
Nervous System Regulation Sessions
When we meditate, we go through many different states. Sometimes it feels good, other times it is more challenging and feels like it's an uphill journey. Somatic psychology offers many insights in the functioning of the nervous system, and Somas are specifically trained in this field to support you deepening your meditation practice. Practically, the session unfolds as follows, you will:
- be guided in a short here-and-now orientation
- be asked to share 1 word (or a short sentence) to describe your experience
- be guided and supported to be present to your moment-to-moment meditative experience as the Soma will
- invite you in relating to your experience in helpful ways
- encourage you to deepen an already present experience of groundedness, ease or enjoyment
- offer accompaniment to increase the safety and space during more difficult experiences
We offer 20-30 minute sessions during our Dharma Gathering and Retreat events. Come and explore meditation with somatic guidance :)
