WEEK 9 / EXERCISE 1

On a day you will have cacao, make a little ritual for yourself with cacao before doing a solo round of quivering for trauma release. Sitting with the cacao, reflect on a painful memory of the past (think: 5-7 on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is the most painful… since you’ll be alone). Drink with the intention of finding some healing and release. Set a timer in the range of 10-20 minutes before you begin the quivering. Flow into any other embodied practice that feels right (yoga, shaking, sitting meditation, etc.). Close the practice in a way that feels good to you. Share about your experience in the group.

WEEK 9 / EXERCISE 2

Experiment with creating your own embodiment exercise. Think: what are some movements, little or big, that you can lead people through to guide them to more awareness of their somatic sensations, felt sense, and nervous system? Feel free to use ingredients that have been helpful for you in the past. But if you do that, change it up a little bit. Actually practice saying these out loud, as if you were guiding a group. Share the prompts below.
