I’m currently in Melbourne, immersing in the studies of Body Mind Centering. We have been diving deep into the study of fluids of the body:

The density of blood.
The directionality of lymph.
The bounded flow of interstitial fluids between cells
The quiet presence of cellular fluid.
The elusive innocence of the cerebral spinal fluid.
The organic ease of the synovial fluids between joints and surrounding the organs.

We speak of how these fluids interplay with weight, time, flow, space, and inform our nervous system – and how all of these express themselves through the tissues in our relational being.

I will be infusing some of my takeaways in the upcoming training in November: Trauma-Informed Somatic Therapy & Bodywork Training (60 hrs, SG).
Looking forward! ☺️
