Life is tough; work stress, family stress, and the stress we put on ourselves to do better and be better. We are so immersed in this daily sea of challenges that we don’t notice the toll it is taking on our body and mind.

By mindfully tuning into our body’s innate wisdom, we can recognize when we are struggling and respond with wisdom and self-kindness. Extensive research has shown that mindfulness and self-compassion can help us replenish our energy and keep us calm, engaged, and kind, even on our most difficult days.

in this 45-Minute experiential talk, you will learn ways to access your innate superpowers of mindfulness and self-compassion by listening to the body.



“The Somatic Symposium was birthed out of the need to reconnect with our felt sense.

To liberate our bodies and elevate our minds.

I believe this is only done through F U L L embodiment. When we inhabit our first home, our body, we eliminate suffering created by our mind…

When we inhabit our self, we begin to recognize the vastness of life within us. We begin to give reverence to the deep physiological resources within us all.  When we believe our bodies are capable, our mind soon follows. When we trust our bodies we begin to embrace our bold possibilities, making leaping much easier.”
