From Surviving to Thriving:  A Somatic Approach to ‘Transforming~Integrating’ the Effects of Interpersonal Violence

The workshop will visit the survival journey of victims of interpersonal violence. Mindfulness of the present moment, and the ability to track non-verbal cues to maintain safety will be discussed. Participants will understand somatic approaches to restoring the wisdom of the body that was once lost due to violence, but found through movement and the safety of all things ‘color, texture, smell, image, memory, thought, feeling, words, setting, people’. Together, we will explore new movement pathways to restore empowering action and move the body towards the ‘new’, moments of victory and transformation.
Presenter: Nancy Toncy, LCPC, BC-DMT, ICDVP, GL-CMA
