Building Community: Somatic Education as Social-Emotional Learning for Teens and Young Adults
In this workshop, participants experience specific somatic activities based in embodied anatomy, developed over 30 years of working with teens and young adults. This groundbreaking program helps students learn about themselves and their bodies, develop their kinesthetic intelligence, and set a healthy trajectory for their future. Based in experiential anatomy, the program also encompasses mindfulness and social-emotional learning to help them examine their cultural perceptions, discover their body prejudices, and gain compassion for themselves and others. These somatic practices also encourage self-agency and develop greater respect for diversity.
The material is based on Susan’s book, The Embodied Teen, the first book to offer a somatic education curriculum adapted to the unique needs of adolescents. Enjoy time to move, reflect, and experience these lessons that build community and empower teens and young adults as they navigate the challenges of these pivotal stages of life.
