somatic affective talk and touch therapeutic synthesis new training program vernon bc

This is an introduction to the 2 year program, which offers training to recognize and guide healing, at the confluence of talk and touch. When talk and touch are combined with awareness, there is a depth of understanding that is physical, emotional, energetic, spiritual and intellectual.

Maybe you are a therapist who primarily talks with your client, however, you can see that they are holding something in their body and you just don’t know how to help them access that body message.
Or perhaps you are a practitioner who primarily uses touch in your work, and feel that you are missing the skill to know what to say when your client is emotional.

Or simply because this training program speaks to you. You are in a profession and wanting to add to your knowledge and you are looking for something “outside the box” which is grounded in science and experience. If you want to incorporate the bodymind through whichever healing modality you practice. SATT is a  different kind of touch and talk, that come together in a way to move clients through their holding patterns and into comfort and ease.

People have physical and emotional patterns that are interlinked in the bodymind. To address one without the other, leaves half the circle open and a pendulum that continues the pattern. Utilizing talk and touch, the practitioner can guide their client to complete a pattern and introduce a new possibility of comfort and ease.

The SATT training program is about how to work with people in a way that deepens their connection to themselves and offers them a way to expand into themselves. There is a therapeutic synthesis that happens when talk and touch are combined that is beyond what only talk or touch alone can access.

Saturday (10 am – 4 pm) morning and afternoon look at theory and practical experience to do with both talk and touch. There is an opportunity for hands on implementation of the tools.

In this Approach, self awareness and self care for the practitioner is as important as working with the physical and emotional needs of the client. Participants will gain insight and learn how to bring a new level of somatic and affective awareness to life and professional practises.

The SATT Approach can bring about deep and lasting change. This is a new modality, created by integrating and simplifying a variety of bodymind methods, by Gilly Thomas, who has been working with wellness for over 20 years.

Covid Protocol will be in place, which includes a limited number of participants. Register now to guarantee your place.

SATT Training Program begins in early 2022
