Understanding and Healing Trauma: Perspectives from Trauma-Informed Mindfulness and Embodied Practices

About This Event

Join clinical psychologist Vamsi Koneru and somatic educator Sandrine Harris for a daylong workshop to deepen your understanding of trauma. We will explore the prevalence of trauma and its impact on our nervous system, mind-body health and relationships. Through exploration of practices associated with trauma-informed mindfulness, gentle movement, and engaged learning, we will develop ways to begin the compassion-filled work of healing.

Sandrine and Vamsi look forward to welcoming you into this process with skilled guidance and drawing from their experiences with trauma-informed mindfulness meditation, Somatic Experiencing® and Feldenkrais®.

Individuals from all walks of life are welcome. No experience with therapeutic movement or meditation is needed to attend. This retreat is an offering of embodied learning, experiential practice, and pathways to restoring health.

Please wear comfortable clothing to move in, shoes for outdoor walking meditation practice, a journal, and anything else which brings you comfort for a full-day experience.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
