Breathwork is a practice that is both "shamanic", delving into non-ordinary states of consciousness, and somatic, delving mindfully into the body and breath-based patterns of stress and trauma. This module will focus on the latter as we bring more science and sensitive, sophisticated facilitation to these powerful processes.
Level 4 is where we turn things up by slowing things down. Way down. In order to continue developing ourselves as safe and effective facilitators, we learn how to slow things down for sensitive and more fragmented clients or for clients that are wanting to investigate something very specific within their experience of life. We will learn how to do this through an investigation of select theories, principles and practices from the field of somatic psychotherapy. These complimentary and supportive approaches will bolster our capacity and allow us to safely work with a broader array of breathwork clientele.
You will continue to both receive and provide Nūma Breathwork sessions with fellow students as you develop your rapidly evolving skill sets.
In this training, you will learn:
to foster a respectful, experiment-based therapeutic relationship with clientele
ways to listen and communicate effectively for therapeutic purposes
how to incorporate a variety of somatic psycho-therapeutic theories, principles, and practices into your facilitation
how to recognize and work within the window of tolerance
how to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma, increasing the trauma sensitivity of your facilitation
to incorporate a wider variety of sound healing tools
This work moves me at a soul level and I am so grateful to have you as a teachers/facilitators/ navigators. I feel so lucky to have found Nūma Somatics. The training is top notch, I wouldn't change a thing. The facilitators are an amazing team and I so appreciate how you hold space for us all. Thank you for this last session - it just keeps getting better & better.
