LOGISTICS: This is a LIVE FACE-TO-FACE training held in Northern California at our pristine eco-reserve near Nicasio, California. The location is about 20 minutes from San Rafael, California and will be contributory to your deep learning journey.
ABOUT: This five-day training will focus on the tracking of autonomic state and subtle interoceptive and field awareness. The training is geared toward wellness practitioners interested in refining their embodied ability to track autonomic state and its texture, nuance, and flavor in an embodied manner. In order to do this effectively, we work to continually refine our own discernment and hone our nuanced ability to track subtle shifts in our own, and our clients somatic presense, and awareness.
The retreat will focus on refining
1) interoceptive awareness skills from within a framework of applied mindful awareness
2) nuanced tracking of ecological/ environmental inputs, e.g., how is the context in which we are situated moving through the body
3) understanding, at a felt level, the somatic signature of different autonomic states and how they tune the physiology
4) tracking, in clients, what phenomena are close enough to the surface to work with most readily
5) continuing to refine your autonomic intuition
YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Natureza Gabriel is a pioneering connection phenomenologist. He is author of the forthcoming The Autonomic Spectrum: Mapping the Neural Landscapes of Wellbeing and Disease and 7 other books. This training is timed with the release of The Autonomic Spectrum, and will utilize the Autonomic Spectrum lecture series as pre-work.
Conditions on the land are rustic. In order to be able to comfortably participate, you should be able to walk about a quarter of a mile on relatively flat (no hills) but not even (there are no sidewalks) ground. In this training we will use our bodies. If you have mobility limitations this training is not a good fit.
We will provide water (bring a container), tea, coffee, fruit, and pastries. Please bring a lunch. Check the weather in Nicasio, California before coming and wear layered clothing. There are a variety of accommodations available in the area, including limited opportunities to stay at the land for a modest additional fee.
