Trauma Healing Workshops & meditation retreats

RECLAIMING OUR NATURAL RESILIENCY

Peter Levine, the creator of Somatic Experiencing®, had the important insight early in his career that animals living in their natural environments are not susceptible to trauma. 


The following workshops and meditation retreats are designed to help reclaim our natural resiliency, vibrancy, and aliveness. They are highly experiential, incorporating elements of Somatic Experiencing and awareness practices. We use specific communication exercises within dyads, creating safety through the social engagement system. Participants have the opportunity to self-reflect, and to track felt-sense without interruption or judgment. The processes are supported by active meditations to complete survival responses and unlock energy from the body. The intention is to develop secure attachment, to resolve trauma (particularly complex and developmental trauma), and to use the healing process as a catalyst for personal growth and spiritual awakening. 


"I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to genuine emotional and spiritual transformation."  - Peter A Levine, PhD.

FACE 2 FACE; The Lion Attitude


(Evening Event)


July 30, 2019; 7-9:30PM


Rudramandir Center for Spirituality and Healing


Berkeley, CA


A lion isn't the largest, fastest, or strongest animal in the animal kingdom - yet, it is the king (or queen). What makes this so? How can we incorporate the mind-set of the lion into our own lives? The intention of this evening is to transform self-doubt into self-confidence. We'll be using expanded states of consciousness created through dyads, principles from Somatic Experiencing®, Polyvagal Theory, awareness practices, and an active meditation to directly experience new possibilities for healing, growth, and awakening.

An eagle represents freedom. It has the ability to rise above and see things from a broader perspective. In a storm, it will spread its wings and use the strong currents to reach great heights while other birds fly away. How can you use the inevitable storms of life to rise to your highest potential? This highly experiential event will incorporate elements of Somatic Experiencing, awareness practices, and active meditations to unlock energy and experience our most vibrant nature.

TRAUMA 2 SATORI; Healing, Growth, & Awakening


(Fully Immersive Weekend Retreat)


August 22-25


Sierra Hot Springs Resort & Retreat Center


Sierraville, CA


This powerful retreat is what my heart has been longing to share since my own experiences of spiritual awakening in India years ago. I was very fortunate to have participated in, and been trained in the facilitation of "Awareness Intensive", otherwise known as "Who is In?" or "Satori" groups. Although hundreds, possibly thousands of people have had enlightenment experiences in these groups, the process has remained relatively obscure. As I later learned about trauma healing techniques, I kept remembering my experiences in India, recognizing that the trauma healing process and spiritual awakening are synonymous: Awareness, presence, felt-sense, self-reflection, and attunement with empathetic others.


"In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair." -Howard Thurman.
