Embodied Empathy Constellations Once-a-month gathering to focus on embodiment. We will support the parts of us that enjoy being in our bodies, and together, we create a space to listen to the parts that are in pain. We'll meet monthly to explore how our bodies work, and how we can relate to our bodies with kindness and curiosity.
Each gathering will focus on one function; i.e. breathing, standing, reaching, etc. from the lens of Structural Integration. I will open with a mini-lesson in structural development and spatial awareness, and then an exercise to inhabit this aspect of movement with gentleness and ease. In the second half of the gathering, we will constellate as a group for people that would like to work. Constellations will be offered in a vignette style, long enough for a picture to emerge and short enough to hold the most important aspects of the question at hand. Building resources is a high priority of mine as a facilitator. My work often expands our understanding of how the body communicates.
This offering is set up in a series format. It is similar to the series that I reference in my Hellerwork practice. Come to one offering, or come to all of them at your choosing. It will recorded so that I can review myself teaching and facilitating. I can send the recording upon request. The tuition is $30 per session. (PayPal, Venmo, Cash, or Check) This offering is in a hybrid format so that people can join me in-person or virtually via Zoom. RSVP each month at least a day before via email: JoyMCarey@gmail.com We meet the first Wednesday of each month from 5-7 est.

Tensegrity 101 - Learning the Principles of Tissue Organization In this class, we will explore what Tensegrity is and why it's important. I will teach the main components of organizing the extrinsic layer of the body, and be a guide as you discover how to apply this knowledge into your discipline. This class can be an introduction to bodywork for people that have limited experience. This is a nine week course that meets once a week. We will alternate between in-person and online sessions. The in-person sessions will be three hours of hands-on work as we learn the manual components of each session. *You can participate remotely in the in-person classes. You will need a model and a table to work on them. The online sessions will be two hours, and it will have more of a Q&A style. You will also be sharing your answers to questions that I will provide as optional "homework" to do either with others in the group or on your own. At the end of this class, you will know about the magic of tensegrity and be able to bring clients closer to their natural alignment. Most importantly, you will be able to design your own treatment protocols to help clients out of specific pain or malalignment issues.
