DISSOLVING STRESS AND TRAUMA WITH CONTINUUM

* 16TH AND 17TH MAY 2020 *

WITH CHERIONNA MENZAM-SILLS

This workshop is open to all

“A living organism contains a vast potential for innovation by containing an intelligence that can elicit new pathways to optimize internal life processes. What may appear to be frozen and dormant can throb with currents of life, all of it taking place within the profundity of a fluid recapitulation.”
– Emilie Conrad, founder of Continuum Movement, author of 'Life on Land'

We will explore how trauma and stress affect tissues and the nervous system. With subtle movement, mindful awareness, breaths and sounds of Continuum, we will support our return to natural fluidity. Continuum, developed over almost 50 years by the late Emilie Conrad, is an enquiry into our fluid nature, and its effect on our health and wellbeing. Emilie Conrad noted that “movement isn’t something we do; we are movement.” Our natural fluidic movement can become frozen due to stress, trauma and the speed of life, and we may experience freezing, dissociation, anxiety, body pain or stiffness. Continuum involves slowing down, mindful awareness, and orienting to what feels good and new; all helpful in healing the effects of stress and trauma.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Review how stress and trauma affect the body-mind, including the neuro-anatomy of stress
  • Explore the power of slowing down and orienting to wholeness, support and resources
  • Engage the breaths, sounds, gentle movement and subtle, mindful awareness of Continuum to discover and dissolve old patterns and enhance choice
  • Recover our original potential for fluid movement, resilience, creativity, enjoyment, health and well-being.
