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.

Amanda Noella Daddona April 29, 2020Living Fully with Fear
The Living Fully with Fear course with Amanda Votto was an incredible experience. I was able to connect with my emotions, dig deep and find what was underneath those emotions, and find comfort within myself and from the shared experiences of the others in the class. I found the practices to be extremely helpful and at times challenging (in a good way). And overall, Amanda did a great job of putting everything into context and explaining how we can relate to fear and tap into a more compassionate part of ourselves. I do wish it had been longer than four weeks. It was a lot of material to cover, and there was a lot to explore and work through. Perhaps Copper Beech might consider extending these online courses to be six or eight week experiences. Even so, I am truly grateful for the opportunity and for all that I gained from this class. Thank you to Amanda and to Copper Beech!

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!!

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!
