EMBODIED ANATOMY: Mapmaking for Somatic Practitioners

This 1-day workshop is open to clinicians, movement teachers, somatic educators, and artists. It meets the WA state CE requirements for physical therapy and massage therapy.

You are in one of *those moments* with a client in your care.

Their inner experience is unknowable, and yet they are describing it to you with words. You notice a stream of changes in their body and in the space between you.

Your job is to blend intuition and lucid decision making. To move from this place to that. To dance at the border or go to the center. To shape the space of their experience, to help them feel and move better.

To do this, you use maps. Maps are everywhere in bodywork, whether it’s muscles or nerves or chakras. Probably many of these maps coexist in your practice.

Instead of learning yet-another-technique, what if we embraced the power of mapmaking itself?

This class is about surfacing and refining the maps we use. It’s about helping

Bodyworkers, Movement Teachers, and Mindfulness Practitioners navigate the infinite inner space of a human form — and have fun doing it!



We will focus on:
• Maps of the body: How are they made and used?
• Palpation: The neuroscience of controlled hallucination
• The language of embodied movement
• Maps and the inner experience: Meditation and visualization
• So now what? Integrating this into your current practice

Please bring movement-friendly clothing and a notebook.
