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 online. 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) 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.

Looking forward to this new and exciting exploration of how two systemic modes of thought meet! Structural Integration and Family Constellations.
Tensegrity 101 - Learning the new model for Biomechanics In this class, we will learn about the ever-growing model of Biotensegrity. This model allows for coherence of how things are structured from the smallest level of cellular organization to the whole body as an organism. I will go through this new lens of interpretation by translating concepts in the traditional model of the body's structures into the language of tensegrity. Traditional thought abides within newtonian physics which describes levers, pulleys, and hard matter. The newer model of Biotensegrity brings about the possibility of expression with movement because it accounts for the properties of the fascial network. You'll learn about the concept of tensegrity and how to apply this information in your own body and/or with clients.
