SOMATIC IFS RETREAT WITH SUSAN MCCONNELL - PENNSYLVANIA, USA

Susan McConnell’s amazing Somatic IFS retreat is a retreat not to be missed.

Somatic IFS is a branch of IFS that blends the principles of somatic therapy - like movement, touch, sensation and breathwork – with the traditional tools of IFS. Somatic IFS explores the embodiment of the internal family with the goal of restoring the client’s SELF to leadership and allowing parts that express through the body to come into relationship and alignment with the client’s SELF. 

On this retreat, you will be invited to explore your internal system with the practices of Somatic IFS. Through guided exercises, journaling, live demonstrations and small group interactions you will listen to your parts through sensations, movement and touch. Your experience of the Embodied Self can transform your personal and professional life. 

We are delighted to host Susan to run her amazing Step 1 Program from October 22nd - 29th, 2024 in Pennsylvania, USA.
