Ex Umbris or "out of the shadows" in latin, is an 8-month intensive course put on by Integral Transformative Bodywork. Geoff Koshin West will guide you into the unknown and provide an inclusive personal transformation practice.
Participants will meet twice a month here at our studio, Revolution Therapy and Yoga. The first meeting is Saturday, March 19th from 12pm to 7pm. The day will generally look like this:
arrival and check-in
breathe and art
Close and return home
Here is a more detailed list of what will be covered in the Ex Umbris course:
2-3 hr breath work session for all participants every session (inspired by Stan Groff and his holotropic modal).
Trauma literacy and integration skills.
Liberation through Integral Theory (founded by Ken Wilber).
Voice Dialogue informed self-exploration practices, shadow literacy and practices.
Communication practices focused on consent, emotion and needs literacy, making requests, and ending dehumanizing relationships.
Moving in and out of Altered States of Consciousness (ASC) and how it benefits recovery, integration, and growth.
2 styles of meditation and the difference between ‘grounded and Grounded.’
Understanding recovery and growth using the Uncovering, Claiming, and Emergence modal (ITB’s 3 Phases of Recovery).
Exploring the difference between Personal Growth and Spiritual Surrender.
Snacks and basic beverages included.
Ex Umbris wants to be inclusive of all incomes and allow everyone to join this great opportunity for bettering the self. The course will follow a sliding scale payment plan where total tuition is 5% of your monthly income times 8 with a $200 deposit to reserve your spot.
example: Bill has a monthly income is $2000. 5% of Bill’s $2k monthly income is $100. When Bill multiplies $100 x 8 he gets $800; Bill’s full tuition that he owes to ITB is $800. Bill’s $200 deposit is subtracted from his $800 tuition. He now owes ITB $600 before the end of the 8 month course. $600 split up over the next 8 months is $75/month.
