This faith-based course for younger breast cancer survivors will emphasize wholeness for body and mind post-cancer, all through movement. All ages and abilities welcome. Please consult with your health care provider prior to participating.
Somatic movement connects the thinking brain and the feeling body. Through somatic movement education, breast cancer survivors can learn to reconnect with their bodies following illness. During and after my own experience with breast cancer, I struggled to feel whole, physically and emotionally, and somatic movement therapy was critical in my recovery.
And relationships benefit, too. Reconnecting with your body post-breast cancer allows your body to once again feel, communicate and express. Because 55% of human communication is non-verbal, re-establishing a body-mind connection and full-body-wholeness greatly impacts love relationships. In other words, how you move (and how you feel about your communicative, expressive, feeling body) matters, for you and your partner.
As a Dynamic Embodiment™ practitioner, I blend movement with therapeutic touch and conscious and compassionate dialogue in my somatic movement education work with breast cancer survivors. As a Certified Movement Analyst, I use my skills in observing, analyzing, understanding and teaching the functional and expressive aspects of movement to help survivors and their partners live more fully and freely.
‘GROUNDED: For Younger Breast Cancer Survivors’ is a faith-based course, but it is not a Bible study. Faith happens in the moving. God created our bodies to be resilient, expressive, communicative and self-healing, and it through that lens that I observe, analyze, understand and teach movement.
