Transformational learning cannot exist just in the mind, it needs to be embodied.

Learning to Listen to Our Body's Wisdom

SOMOS is about taking a pause from your busy life and giving yourself the space and time to truly reflect on the quality of your health, relationships and work culture.

It is easy to get lost in our thoughts and stories. Somatic practices and nature immersion help us to reconnect with our deeper intuition and lead a more balanced and embodied life.

Developing the Skill of Somatic Facilitation

SOMOS is not only an opportunity to reflect on yourself, but also an opportunity to consider the wider systems and work environments that we are a part of. We will be diving into the science of our physiology and demonstrating several facilitation tools that will enable better communication and collaboration within your team or organisation.

Retreat Schedule

SOMOS refers to the Somatic Operating System that exists in all of us, or in other words our 'bodymind'. SOMOS also means 'We Are' in Spanish.

During our training we will guide you through proven embodied leadership tools and practices that will activate your somatic instincts and enable you to better regulate your nervous system, avoiding burn out and reactive behaviours. These practices will also help you to feel more alive within your body, awaken your creativity and learn to live a more balanced, embodied and empowered life.
