Groups provide an amazing forum for personal change and growth. As social mammals, we find ourselves immersed in groups throughout our lives such as families, school, communities, extra-curricular activities, work environments, etc. We can’t get away from the powerful influence of groups in how they shape us. Most human concerns that lead one to therapy involve relationships.
Every one of us wants to get our needs met, whether it’s intimacy, attention, connection, recognition, respect, care, companionship, or love. Unfortunately, based on numerous factors, many of us have learned unhealthy or unfulfilling ways to meet these needs, which creates more difficulties than are necessary. Group therapy provides a unique and useful way to address these unhelpful behavior patterns that are often unknown to us. The main goal of group therapy is to identify these maladaptive behavior patterns (often known to us as relational “blind spots”) in a safe, supportive environment and to find more adaptive ways to connect with others to get our needs met.
Groups offer several important growth-enhancing factors. One is that group members feel less alone, more connected, and more able to accept themselves simply by being with others who are engaged in similar processes. This experience of “universality” or "belonging" provides much relief to many members. The second, and even more powerful component of group, is that it’s like a “social laboratory.” It’s a unique, confidential and safe place to try on new ways of being and to learn about how you impact others and how they impact you. Group offers a “hall of mirrors” where you can learn about yourself through what you see in others and what others see in you.
Your Body, Our Movement: Clearing The Way
Beginning February 18th, i will be hosting an online 6 week closed group (vs. an open drop-in style class) for women identified folks.
The cost is $120 - $275, sliding scale, ability dependent.
Not only will we be in group experience, there will be room for individuals to deepen into facilitated personal processes, as well.
Given this and my desire to support our current need for intimacy and embodied depth, i intended to keep the group small (no scrolling through zoom pages to see who’s with us!).
The intention: to work with and release anything that is in the way of our ability to include ourselves, include one another, include our personal and community currents, and our wide view.
We will be meeting once a week - Thursdays
9 - 10:30am PT / 12 - 1:30 ET / 5 - 6:30pm GMT/ 6 - 7:30pm CET
It will be a Sanctuary for mindful embodiment, healing movements, experimentation and risk, embodied communication and honest relationship.
*Soul Motion Dance
*Somatics in Service of Relationship
*Social Body Awareness Practices
There will also be opportunities for reduced cost for 1:1 session(s), as well.
