3-day workshop with Liz Koch
“Stalking The Wild Psoas: Womb to World”

From Womb to World, the Journey that Shapes our Life: Understand the long-term effects of our own conception, nine months in the womb, and birth experience. Discover how this experience might still affect each of us today physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Learn to support human potential from before conception throughout birth and beyond.

Exploring the Somatic Dynamics of Birth as it Plays Out in Our Own Core Expression: Our personal and cultural story is always held and expressed within our Psoas. It is possible to listen deeply into our own or another person’s internal process of unfolding. Doing so offers us insight into unspoken levels of anguish we or another person may be consciously or unconsciously experiencing.  Prenatal imprints are on an embryological level playing out on a cellular, organ, and tissue level as primordial expressions of our life attitudes and desires. This workshop explores the Psoas and core expression through simple movement evoking fluid movement and sound (within an atmosphere of play) for the soul purpose of reawakening and revitalizing our primal core. The explorations offer a way of igniting a primal awakening that stirs our life’s passion from within our belly core.

Workshop Location: Zanti, Pilestredet 75c, oppgang 13 0354, Oslo

Conceptie, Zwangerschap en de Geboorte, hoe beïnvloedt dit ons leven?
Het is inmiddels wetenschappelijk bewezen dat de conceptie, zwangerschap en de geboorte een diepe imprint vormt die grote invloed heeft op alle relaties in ons leven. Niet alleen de relatie met familieleden en vrienden maar ook onze gezondheid, ons werk en dagelijks leven word door deze vroege verbale, emotionele en somatische imprint bepaald. Meestal zijn we ons hier totaal niet van bewust.Tijdens deze Masterclass zal met behulp van geboorte fotografie en de laatste bevindingen in de pre,- en perinatale psychologie duidelijk gemaakt worden hoe deze imprints, angsten of trauma’s zijn ontstaan en onszelf, onze kinderen, studenten of patiënten nog steeds beïnvloeden.

What happens from the moment we are conceived through birth is a foundational experience that is replayed throughout life. Unresolved traumatic impact from this time can affect an individual from infancy through old age. Understanding these traumas, how they are held in the body, and integrating them can become a powerful aid to improving outcomes in all areas of our lives, physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual.
With its unique blend of the latest findings in epigenetics and pre and perinatal psychology, guided processes and hands-on body work, this 5-day workshop will help us understand how these early imprints created our beliefs, behavioral patterns and fears, and how they are played out in our lives and relationships.
