Healing Focused Events

Healing focused events are designed to be intensive healing experiences. We bring years of clinical and somatic knowledge with us as we support you and your nervous system on your healing journey. One day events and our extended weekend retreats, allow you to temporarily step away from your daily grind so you can have more access to yourself. The three of us have done extensive trauma-healing and recovery work of our own, so you can trust that you are being cared for by people who have lived this journey for themselves. We are thrilled to offer these community-based healing experiences because we know the value of learning about your trauma responses, understanding your nervous system, building new skills and internal resources, and above all, beginning to soften to yourself and your body.

Healing experiences and retreats hosted by Dr. Danica Harris, SEP,
Dr. Brittany Escuriex, and Morenike Olorunnisomo, LPC, SEP

Single Day Events

This one-day workshop provides you with 6 full hours of education, support, and experiential learning. The morning portion will be focused on understanding the impact trauma has on the nervous system, the value of daily somatic practices, and how tending to yourself even during a busy and full day is the foundation of healing. We will then provide lunch and you will have time to ask questions, take some space, or rest as you so desire. After lunch we will break up into small groups and you will spend time with Danica, Brittany, and Morenike separately, as they offer you a variety of somatic practices to try on in the moment. The small group exercises will allow you to experience group healing which can be very supportive and regulating when conducted in a trauma-informed way. Plus, the intimacy of the small groups will give you time to tailor your somatic practice to you and co-regulate with each of the facilitators who continue to do their own nervous system work. We trust that you will leave this experience with tangible knowledge and tools that will not only advance your other therapeutic work, but help you to build a personal somatic practice so you can begin to be gentler with yourself.

Nourishing Your Nervous System: A Somatic Workshop

Nourishing Your Nervous System: A Somatic Workshop for Healers and Mental Health Providers

This one-day workshop will be structured like our April event; however it will be specifically tailored to those in the helping professions. We believe that healers, helpers, and mental health professionals need specialized support, and we know first-hand the impact vicarious trauma and burnout can have on your system. Join us so we can tend to you, so you can experience true support, and so we can help you build a somatic practice that will have you feeling resourced even after a full day of clients.

Multi-Day Events

You're invited to join us for our somatic-experiencing and healing-focused retreat. This trauma-informed, immersion experience will allow you to settle into a safe container with highly skilled trauma therapists and Somatic Experiencing Practitioners as you attend to the parts of yourself that need gentleness, support, and care as you move forward from your traumatic past. Healing-focused retreats can provide support and transformation equivalent to months of therapy. Stepping out of your life for a few days will allow you the space to connect with yourself in a deeper, more meaningful way.
