Wisdom of the Body Play Series: embodiment, singing, and art practices to support your healing journey

$69.99

Are you exhausted by your experience of trauma? And do you long to be surprised, enlivened, and nourished by your healing journey?

We can do healing work for years, talk all day and process, but, if we don’t address our bodies and give them safe opportunities to express, not much changes.

Join 5 teachers, selected by Sarah Peyton, in a gentle and warm exploration of the way expressive arts support our healing journey. This series, full of consent and choice, will allow you to show up in ways that work for you. Whether you are comfortable with full expression or feel shy and hesitant, all offerings will be welcoming, gentle, and warm, allowing you to engage in the way that works for you. Over 10 sessions, explore art, dance, movement, writing, and song to (re)connect to your body, your heart, and the community.

 

Description

This is an all-in-one bundle that includes access to all 10 Wisdom of the Body Play Series weekly interactive explorations, taught by 5 teachers selected by Sarah Peyton.   This series meets Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-7:30pm PDT beginning August 4, 2021 (except August 18) through October 13, 2021.

By purchasing this package, you have the option of attending and participating in each weekly session live, or watching the recordings when they’re posted (generally within 48-72 hours of the session).  Sessions are designed to be experiential.

The sessions included are:

  • August 4 – Interplaying Our Way to Self Connection with Kristin Masters: As a longtime student of Interplay (https://www.interplay.org/), Kristin will invite in simple practices and forms that allow us to surface embodied resonance. Through surprising and low-risk engagements, we’ll hear ourselves so we can drip some resonance into our thirsty systems. There will of course be plenty of choice in how to play, but the insights that reveal themselves might come unbidden.
  • August 11- Let’s Catch Gold! Seeing and Being Seen at Play with Movement with Kellita Maloof: Let the wisdom of your body reveal itself through play, easy focus and witnessing. Discover what stories your body has to tell, and wants to tell, in just the way that feels best. Experience clear simple frameworks that provide support for the left hemisphere to be a genuine support for your right hemisphere gold to pour forth. “Catching Gold” is what happens when we feel safe to play and allow ourselves to be in wonder at what we have to express. Sometimes our hands will dance for us … Sometimes our whole bodies. We’ll move and dance our wonder, our grief, our outrage, our love, whatever most wants expression. We’ll practice playing with what we might usually “work” on … this is the difference that makes the difference! Choose to be witnessed and/or be a resonant witness for others. Both ways of showing up are needed … and both yield the universe and allow us to touch the Mystery
  • August 25 – Collaging for a Kinder, Warmer Inner Voice with Jaya Manske: For many of us, our internal voice is critical and cruel. Join Jaya to create a new landscape of inner warmth for yourself through resonant collage making. Collage provides an opportunity to discover and explore what imagery, poetry, and words we are drawn to. This will be an experiential workshop with lots of space to discover and create.  Gather together to dive into self-care, warmth, and kindness through creative self-expression. Bring: Collage paper, newspapers or old magazines to cut or tear, glue stick/glue and any of your favorite collaging materials. For those without access to materials, an electronic alternative will be provided. Jaya also recommends bringing some of your favorite music to listen to while you discover, explore and create.
  • September 1 – Inviting the Unedited with Kristin Masters: One of Kristin’s joys lies in a freewrite group she facilitates weekly. Rules are simple. We set a timer, write continuously from a common prompt, read if we want to optionally, say thank you, share echoes. The simplicity of this might bely the intimacy with self and other that can arise, bubbling toward the surface and being caught by real and sweet community. Kristin invites you to know you’ll have choice in every moment, and guessing that you’ll hear something that will clarify and nourish, might bring contact with laughter, tears, states of wonder and gratitude.
  • September 8 – Let’s Catch Gold! Seeing and Being Seen at Play with Movement, Story and Voice with Kellita Maloof: Let the wisdom of your body reveal itself through play, easy focus and witnessing. Discover what stories your body has to tell, and wants to tell, in just the way that feels best. Experience clear simple frameworks that provide support for the left hemisphere to be a genuine support for your right hemisphere gold to pour forth. “Catching Gold” is what happens when we feel safe to play and allow ourselves to be in wonder at what we have to express. This time we’ll introduce using our voices with words – in addition to moving our bodies – and if we’re feeling it, even sounds + songs! We’ll dance, speak – and maybe even sing – our wonder, our grief, our outrage, our love, whatever most wants expression. We’ll practice playing with what we might usually “work” on … this is the difference that makes the difference! Choose to be witnessed and/or be a resonant witness for others. Both ways of showing up are needed … and both yield the universe and allow us to touch the Mystery.
  • September 15 – Collaging Complex Truths with Jaya Manske: Often, our personal truths are complex, with multiple dimensions, but to belong or to stay safe, we hide away parts of ourselves and our experience. When these experiences are not named, spoken, or resonated with, it impacts our health and well-being. In this experiential workshop, we’ll use collage to explore and acknowledge our truth. Allowing our right hemispheres to lead the way, we’ll invite the body, imagery and words to guide. You’ll create 1-3 collages, allowing your body to be the guide. Jaya will offer prompts to help you explore what has not been named or held. Attune to yourself and see what wants to be created. Bring: Collage paper, newspapers or old magazines to cut or tear, glue stick/glue and any of your favorite collaging materials. For those without access to materials, an electronic alternative will be provided. Jaya also recommends bringing some of your favorite music to listen to while you discover, explore and create.
  • September 22 – Embodying Forgiveness with Sasha Soreff: Forgiveness is often talked about as something we “should” do – forgive ourselves, forgive others, ask forgiveness. But what does it actually mean, and how does it live in the body? Through resonant movement and warmhearted conversation, this experiential workshop unpacks forgiveness and the many feelings and sensations that may swirl around this potentially complicated experience. All movement invitations are optional. Whatever range of motion and mode of expression feels authentic and comfortable for you is welcome.
  • September 29 –  Songs of the Essential Self with Joshua Blaine: In this session, we’ll bring some warm attention to some patterns that we’re ready to shift and release. With the help of emergent song – melody, rhythm, poetry, and breath – we’ll then offer ourselves blessings from our Essential Selves for the “new direction our longing wants us to take” (John O’Donohue). Guided by songleader and resonant healing facilitator, Joshua Blaine, one or a few participants will have the opportunity to receive and/or co-create a song from their essential self, which will be recorded and shared afterward to continue to accompany, inspire, and inform the ongoing process of transformation and integration.
  • October 6 – Play is Possible: Cultivating a Sense of Play Through Movement with Sasha Soreff: Play is such a precious, life-affirming experience. In times of stress and diminished safety, it can quickly disappear. How do we get it back? Resonant movement helps us rediscover a sense of playfulness, curiosity and delight. After a gentle warm up, we’ll explore how resonant movement can lead us to play and creative spontaneity. All movement invitations are optional. Whatever range of motion and mode of expression feels authentic and comfortable for you is welcome.
  • October 13 – Singing Our Belonging into Being with Joshua Blaine: Song – especially in community – is one of the oldest “technologies of belonging.” In this session, songleader and resonant healing facilitator, Joshua Blaine, will teach a handful of simple songs that invite self-warmth, connection, belonging, and aliveness. The songs are designed to be carried and shared, ready to be sung in moments of tension, boredom, contraction, or celebration. Recordings of the songs that are taught will be shared with all participants to support deeper integration and learning.
