The Soma - Psyche Institute Presents
SOMATIC INTUITION TRAINING PROGRAM

THE TRAINING PROGRAM
Somatic Intuition is designed to provide bodyworkers, counselors, therapists, healing professionals and individuals with a way to systematically explore and develop their natural ability to attune to and intuitively understand the person they are working, communicating or interacting with.
Each of the four weekend workshops builds upon the skills of the prior workshops, giving participants the opportunity to refine, deepen and expand their intuitive – empathic skills.
SOMATIC INTUITION I - INTRODUCTION
This first weekend workshop is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to heighten, refine, and direct their natural intuition. The focus of this workshop will be on engaging in intuitive exercises that help us attune to and explore ourselves and on intuitively sensing and respectfully sharing our guided, supervised intuitive experiences of each other.
We will be practicing skills such as Intuitive Imaging, Somatic Attunement and Subtle Emotion Perception in small and large groups with discussion/supervision.
SOMATIC INTUITION II – INTUITIVE SENSING
Somatic Intuition II builds on the skills of intuitive attunement and exploration introduced in Somatic Intuition I. Our intuition is always working. The intuitive exercises practiced in
Intuition I helped our intuition “Speak More Clearly” to us. In this workshop we will learn to “Listen More Closely” to our ongoing, spontaneous, intuitive experiences. The goal of this workshop is to open to the flow of our subtle intuitive experiences, which may initially seem trivial, enigmatic or irrelevant and to learn how to Respectfully share and Sensitively engage in Intuitive Dialogs with each other.
Each dialog will be unique and will be guided and supervised by workshop leaders. We will be practicing skills such as “Attention to the Trivial,” Felt Sensing, and Empathic Imaging.
SOMATIC INTUITION III – PRESENCE, MEANING, EMOTION
At the center of working intuitively with another person is the intuitive - empathic dialog. We do not create this dialog; it is naturally present in any person-to-person meeting. Within the context of this natural dialog three important processes are interacting and supporting it’s flow: Presence, shared intuitive understanding of Personal Meaning, and Natural Emotional Unfolding.
This workshop looks at each of these three processes in more depth. A framework for understanding the structure of Presence, for tracking and mapping Personal Meaning and for understanding the stages of Natural Emotional Unfolding will be discussed and experientially explored in large and small group formats.
SOMATIC INTUITION IV – MOMENTS OF OPENNESS
The goal of this workshop is to help participants feel confident and open as the intuitive-empathic dialog deepens and the relationship begins to unfold. Important to gaining this confidence is the understanding and mastery of depth listening skills and the recognition of “moments of openness”. In these moments the openness of the client and the skillful intuitive listening presence of the practitioner creatively combine to expand and deepen their person-to-person dialog. This workshop will help participants recognize these moments and weave them into their growing intuitive skills. Work will be in large and small group formats with discussion and supervision.
