Summer Body Mapping Intensive – May 2020
9th & 10th May 2020, 10am-5.30pm Sat & Sun in BATH
COMING TO FULL BLOOM
For women only
Body Mapping is a creative therapeutic process that allows you to feel into and creatively communicate the stories that you live in your body. It involves creating a life-size representation of your body on canvas and using images, symbols, objects/natural materials and words to map out different living places in you: Places that are full of life, places that pain, and places that hold hope and potential for the future. In the process of creating the body map you will discover new links between these places in you and gain a deeper understanding of your own power to create health within you and through your way of living in this world.
This Summer Intensive is designed for women and takes place in an intimate and confidential circle of women. The small size of the circle makes it possible for each participant to fully take her place and space whilst being safely held and accompanied during her personal explorations and discoveries. The focus will be on cherishing our unique expressions of full-bodied life as women.
The Intensive interweaves drawing, painting and sculpting with body meditations, movement, ritual and heart-felt speaking. No previous skills in art making are required. Gentle care and sensitive attention is given to the small and big things that move and shine through us. I also hold with warmth and confidence those experiences that are stored with pain or lack of feeling in your body.
As somatic body mapping follows a process of creatively conceiving and coming into human form we will also be working with the subtle resonances of your prenatal and birth experiences. This might touch places in you that feel vulnerable yet, as they are safely processed, can lead to healing and a renewed sense of self.
The weekend intensive allows for the landscape of your lived body to become more visible, more accessible and more meaningful. It enables you to gain a new perspective on old habits and difficulties, make new choices, deeply appreciate your creative power and celebrate what flourishes in and through you.
If you are a psychotherapist or counsellor, completion of this workshop also allows you to apply for the yearlong Somatic Body Mapping Mentorship.
WORKSHOP FEE: £250 (£100 deposit), inclusive of art materials and coffee break. Please bring your own lunch or use one of the cafes along Walcott Street.
