The vast amount of health information currently available can feel overwhelming. This training series aims to empower people to get diverse health information and research, including information that seems so advanced only a doctor would understand it. You are the primary expert on your body and you have the right and ability to use and understand all available knowledge about the body to your benefit.
Think you can’t understand the newest finding in neuroscience or epigenetics and how they pertain to you? Think again! Health knowledge, like many things in our society, is too often used as a form of control. New Horizons for Health: Skills and Practices for Healing and Health Justice will provide concrete concepts, skills and practices to enable participants to engage with their own health and healing in a fresh, more confident and liberatory way.
Whether you are a person for whom standard healthcare hasn’t worked, a health-care professional, an activist, or someone who simply wants to feel better, this 6-week intensive training series will change the way you experience health.
This course will enable participants to:
- Re-think health beyond popular health myths
- Be Present
- Gain fluency in basic medical terminology, and learn the basics of conducting medical research
- Confidently engage in health-advocacy for yourself and others
- Learn somatic techniques for healing trauma and for being and becoming the embryos for the change we strive to create in the world
- Cultivate an understanding of emerging findings in neurobiology, neurophysiology and epigenetics
- Build skills for healthier living and using your intuition
- Envision and plan personal and community-based solutions to the health crisis
All participants will also receive a 20 minute health and wellness session. Enroll Here!

This class will be a scent-free space!
Grounded in the belief that the body in its wholeness is the foundation for healing, somatic practices combine body awareness techniques with findings in neurobiology and neurophysiology. These practices support & enhance the body’s innate self-regulatory and resilience-building capacities. Used with focused intention, these practices can lead to symptom reduction and deeper insight about who we are, the world as a whole, and how we wish to inhabit it. Come as you are, leave as you want to be, somatics for social responsibility!
