10:00 am – 4:30 pm
WildCat Studio at 2525 8th St. Berkeley, CA 94710

For anyone who has ever considered adding the skills of Essential Motion to their own somatic practices, this workshop is a very special opportunity. People are also welcome to join purely for their own personal growth.

Essential Motion offers a somatic approach to leading and guiding people toward powerful, personal transformation. During this training you are supported in expanding your own ability to be present in your body and to sense and respond to your environment from a place of authenticity. By applying these skills and the leadership and communication tools you acquire in this training, you will be able to create a safe container in which those you lead or coach can also learn to return to a sense of ease, freedom, and power within themselves.

This program is especially designed for anyone who:

  • is continuing their Essential Motion training and practice or is currently working in the somatic field.
  • is in a leadership role and wants to deepen their leadership skills and expand their practical tool set.
  • works with people in a healing and helping profession and wants to be re-inspired and invigorated while learning new approaches to deepening their work.
    NOTE: For those who choose to continue with this training offering, a once-a-month group conference call and personal monthly one-on-ones through Zoom will be offered. For more details about this program, please contact Karen Roeper directly: karen@ielephant.com
