Somatic Body Mapping
Your body matters.
Your bodily felt senses matter.
Your feelings matter.
What is it?
Somatic Body Mapping is a safe, respectful, and gently paced process which encourages and engages with your body sensations, movement, feelings, and creativity. It is a space to slow down and attend to your inner sensations in your body. It is a personal journey to understand about yourself and your body in a collective conscious circle of womxn.
You will be creating a body-size map, using various art and organic materials that assist to express yourself. It is explorative, experiential, playful, and sometimes risk-taking. It does not aim to create a 'nice piece of artwork'.
The process is not therapy, but can become a therapeutic process for you. You do not require any artistic and moving skills or experience. Your bodily felt senses and feelings matter. This workshop is only for womxn.
Somatic Body Mapping is for those would like to explore their own life journey bodily and creatively. It is important for practitioners to have a space for being self-reflective and curious about yourself. You can count hours as your CPD hours.
In the Somatic Body Mapping, we gather as a circle of womxn. We have a choice of sharing, and listen, witness, and echo other womxn's experiences. The space becomes collective and conscious by other's presence.
This type of body mapping is not just 'marking' or colouring what is/ exists in your body. They may come from your brain and thoughts. On contrary, Somatic Body Mapping is strongly based on your somatic bodily experience. What you experience in your body is a central focus in this journey. It also means that you access your unconscious through bodily sensations.
The maximum number of womxn in a somatic body mapping group is 5. It is a small group that enriches in-depth experience.
