Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

No one lives a stress-free life. The question is, how to handle it in a health enhancing manner, rather than having it slowly break down your resilience. Resilience is a state of the body that reflects into your state of mind. New understandings of how our whole systems act and interact gives us methods of self-regulation and energy management.

This course is designed to build your resilience and help you recognize the signs of ongoing distress or growing resilience in your students, patients, or clients.

Deep grief, trauma, sustained illness, a constant frustration—all of these can sap your resilience—structural, physiological, or psychological health. Your neural net, your chemical circulation, and your myofascial system all exhibit elasticity and plasticity. How can you enhance your adaptability?

Using the breath, stretching, awareness meditation, and focused attention, we explore the limits of the neural, biochemical, and fascial “whole-body” systems: how to make stress work for you, and what to do to lessen distress, increase balance, and have the most resilient system possible.

We’ve heard of IQ, and most of us have heard of EQ—Emotional Intelligence. But what about KQ—Physical Intelligence? Tune into your body’s “hunches” and sensations to make the best use of your organismic responses to life situations.

Faculty recommends you read the following books in preparation for the course:

  • Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists by Thomas W. Myers
  • BodyReading: Visual Assessment and the Anatomy Trains by Thomas Myers

Myers is independently offering continuing education credits; see anatomytrains.com.

Bring a water bottle; bringing/wearing loose, comfortable clothing is suggested.
