Somatic Based Teaching using the Continuum Model - Module 3

Focus- Physics underlying Continuum philosophy, Baseline and Open attention
Students are encouraged to examine the experience and meaning of resonant states through the lens of nature and scientific interpretation. The fractal nature of existence is considered in terms of how spiraled movement of water mirrors our organic developmental and evolutionary process, and how that can creatively alter our way of seeing and experiencing life. This mutable and fractal model of the human form can be useful for dynamic postural analysis as well as an observational tool for injury rehabilitation and physical restoration. Students learn to see how fluid re-patterning is orchestrated with the movement of human awareness within the bodymind. Students learn how this awareness can change the quality of our internal processes— i.e. of pain, of movement, of shaping, of emotion, of thought. Students learn an overview of the 5 basic senses and sense organs, plus proprioception and interoception, and how to work with language that supports the tracking of sensory-motor experience and self-regulation.
Practicum- Students will present a class and receive feedback first from peers and then teachers.
