Title: Introduction to TranSomatic Wellness & Embodied Spirituality

Abstract: It has been over a year since the coronavirus pandemic struck the world in full force resulting in health, economic and social upheaval as well as mental health pandemic. Making sure we remain healthy, stay connected and spiritually anchored has never been more challenging and important. Hence, body and spiritual wellness programs that help us transition from fear and survival towards empowerment and thriving have a crucial role in post-pandemic world.
TranSomatic Wellness is an embodied psychotherapy approach that recognises body as the foundation to our emotional, mental and spiritual wellness. This program integrates a number of paradigms, from systems and quantum theory to positive psychology, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, yoga and transpersonal psychology.
The introduction will start with a brief overview related to relevance of body for general well-being & spiritual flourishing. Next, I will introduce concept of body intelligence and embodied spirituality then share case examples and demonstrate clinical and preventative application using a number of techniques including breath-work, somatic mindfulness, mapping and imagery. In conclusion, adopting a holistic and integrative approach may play significant role in preventative health as well as offer an exciting new scope in transpersonal clinical practice and training.
