Finding Sanctuary in the Body with Paula Josa-Jones

In this webinar you will learn several simple, gentle movement practices using conscious movement and stillness, breath, self-touch, and imagery. These are intended to help settle our systems, feel ourselves more deeply, and hold ourselves more gently by attuning to movement, which is our primary language. These practices can be integrated into traditional SE work and modified as appropriate for the abilities of the practitioner and the needs of the client.

This webinar takes place February 2, 2021 from 12 pm – 1:30 pm MST via Zoom. Registration closes at 12 pm MST on February 1.
