Workshops, Retreats, Trainings
I offer workshops and retreats on Embodied Spirituality both at retreat centers such as Esalen Institute (Big Sur, California) and various psychotherapy training programs. I have been invited to present Embodied Spirituality across several continents, including in countries such as the United States, Spain, Japan, India, Indonesia, Iran, Germany, United Kingdom, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, and Peru, among others.
Embodied Spirituality considers all human dimensions—body, instincts, heart, mind, and consciousness—as equal partners on our path to integral growth and transformation. It honors the voice and wisdom of the body as the main tools for contemplative inquiry. Through mindful physical contact we explore different ways of knowing including somatic, vital, emotional, and contemplative. Individuals and professionals from all orientations can creatively incorporate the practical tools presented in this workshop in their clinical and spiritual practice, as well as in their everyday lives and intimate relationships.
In this workshop, you will learn to:
Appreciate your body as a doorway to access the deepest dimensions of your being, life, and reality.
Access your most genuinely creative potential stored within your primary/vital world.
Identify personal pathways toward the integration of sexuality and spirituality in your personal life and intimate relationships.
Integrate mindful physical contact and contemplative awareness in both your own healing and others’.
Apply practices to integrate and ground spiritual experiences into your body and everyday life, both yours and others’.
