RE-WILDING Psoas: Finding Your Voice ~ A Collaboration with Liz Koch in Amsterdam
Ik heb de eer en het genoegen om een dagworkshop te geven in samenwerking met Liz Koch – expert met ruim 40 jaar ervaring in het bevrijden van de Psoas, onze emotionele spier die ons hart met onze voeten verbind. Veel stress en trauma ligt hierin opgeslagen. Liz heeft mij gevonden en wij vervolgens elkaar in onze gemeenschappelijke missie om de mensheid te helpen bevrijden, ontspannen, pijn los te laten, spelen en genieten! Een engelstalige workshop.
Your psoas is not merely a muscle. It is the primal messenger from the core of your being. This bio-intelligent tissue expresses your integrity on every level and may be perceived as the guardian of the Hara, commonly referred to as the moving center. Located deep within your core, your psoas is a source of inner power.
I encourage you to explore the psoas in order to know this mysterious body tissue and its influence on every aspect of your life. As the tenderloin, or “filet mignon,” of the human body, a healthy psoas is a juicy, supple, dynamic tissue that supports full body responsiveness. My books and articles offer explorations that can help you not only connect but also nourish your psoas.
November 13 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Although culture defines the “wild” as untamable, feral, out of control, riotous, ridiculous, rash, stupid, impractical, and tempestuous, it is by welcoming the wild that we avoid living a domesticated, indifferent, and unenthusiastic life.
Enfolding somatic awareness and biomorphic movement into our life changes not only the course of our health but the creative expression of our soul.
Re-wilding psoas is not a sacrifice or a fix for a dilemma; rather, it is a way with which to participate – to consciously join in, to belong… to play.
Recommended Reading ~ This workshop is based on my new book Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence
“Liz Koch opens the reader to a brilliant phenomenological panorama of the human body as a shaping, a process, a Gestaltung—as the expression of our soul, intelligence, and consciousness.”
—Jaap van der Wal,MD PhD, embryologist, anatomist and (recovering) morphologist
Liz Koch, author of Core Awareness andThe Psoas Book,seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to reconceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Specifically addressing educators and therapists, she delves into the conceptual framework of core by decolonizing the popular mechanistic thinking of psoas as muscle, inviting the reader on a journey toward reengaging with life’s creative processes. The book illuminates the limitations of the predominant paradigm of body and actively explores psoas as a vital, intelligent messenger that links us to an expansive network of profound possibilities. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Koch redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal. Named after the her popular exploratory workshops of the same name, Stalking Wild Psoas encourages all readers to nourish integrity and claim self-efficacy as creative and expressive individuals.
