The Ecstatic Body
A Hands-On Exploration of the Jaw, the Pelvis, and the Core Link
TYS Master Class with Pamela Samuelson
“This is the first, wildest, and wisest thing I know, that the soul exists and that it is built entirely out of attentiveness.” — Mary Oliver
The Ecstatic Body is a two day hands-on introduction to the profound energetic, somatic and structural connections between the jaw and the pelvis, and the deep capacity for systemic transformation we hold within them. Taught from a perspective that holds sensual presence, somatic awareness and a skillful therapeutic touch as essential to healing in any context, this workshop offers a clear, comprehensive, experiential understanding of the anatomy, functionality, and ecstatic potential of these beautifully sensitive axes of the human body.
Day 1 is focused on feeling, visualizing, and working directly with the vital architecture of the jaw, mouth and neck. On Day 2, we approach the energetic wellspring of the pelvis, and begin to dance with the rich connection between pelvis and jaw. The dynamics of consent, the cultivation of inner vision, clear guidelines for assessment, and the vital importance of providing a stable container for catharsis are discussed throughout the workshop as fundamental to offering the most loving, intelligent, and responsible work possible to our clients and loved ones.
This workshop is offered to massage and touch therapists, yoga teachers and yoga therapists, somatic therapists, midwives and doulas, certified sexological bodyworkers and other somatic educators, and anyone with a personal interest in exploring the ecstatic possibilities of their own body.
