Eco-Somatic Practice in Felt Thinking Methodology

Are you interested in delving deeper into the world of eco-somatic practice? Are you ready to begin your personal journey and develop a greater understanding and a new sense of self within environmentally inclusive contexts?

In this three-phase certified course, designed and delivered by Dr Anna Dako, you can learn more about the somatic practice of Felt Thinking in Movement and how to engage and apply it meaningfully in everyday life.

This two years long course consists of three phases, each of which can be completed either in person or online. Each phase must be completed before you are able to progress on to the subsequent phases. The full course will take approximately two years to complete. At the end of Phase 3, you will have completed the course and received certification in the process. 

PHASE ONE: ON SOMATIC RECEPTIVITY AND CONNECTIVE PRESENCE

In this phase you will be introduced to the methodology of Felt Thinking and the practice of somatic receptivity while walking and contemplating movement outdoors. The phase can be completed through either 24 audio guided sessions of walks in your own natural surroundings or through attending two seasons of Walks to Wellbeing in person, in Aberdeenshire.

PHASE TWO: ON RESPONSIVENESS AND EXPERIENTIAL EXCHANGE

Phase Two will be a deeper exploration of the Felt Thinking methodology and how to engage with the natural world around on psychologically deeper levels. Through 10 (audio-guided) workshopping sessions or 10 one-to-one sessions with Dr Anna Dako, you’ll be able to gain deeper insight into how to develop your responsiveness and engage in experiential exchange in breath and free movement.

PHASE THREE: ON INSIGHTFUL INTUITING AND ECOLOGICAL BELONGING (3 DAY-LONG RETREAT)

The third and final part of the course will culminate in an intensive 3 day-long retreat, led by Dr Anna Dako. During the retreat you will be able to explore the implicit in movement concepts of ethical responsibility, insightful intuiting and processes of eco-somatic integration, as well as arrive at deepest levels of self-reflection.
