Working with Karyne, you will explore the body’s capacity to store and communicate messages and emotions outside of conscious awareness. The body becomes a receptacle for unacceptable emotions the mind does not want to process. These unknown and hidden emotions wield power, causing self-defeating behaviors.

It is human nature to disown, discount, and repress feelings of anger, resentment, revenge, rejection, shame, fear, powerlessness, deep sadness, and shock, because we believe these feelings do not reflect our true selves. Taking up residence in our bodies, feelings hide behind tight jaws, grinding teeth, pulled up shoulders, tense muscles, frozen pelvises, dull eyes, and body fat.


Workshops take place in a supportive, encouraging atmosphere with breaks for integration, relaxation, and meals.

Wear comfortable, loose clothing for easy movement, and layers to accommodate to variations in room temperature.

Participants engage in depth with somatic methods and techniques emphasizing energy, body movement, life force, early life woundings, intrapersonal experiences, and interpersonal communications.

Continuing Education Credits are provided whenever possible.
