STREAM Live! In-person workshops are designed to help you feel STREAM come to life in your hands and in your practice

In a combination of anatomy, somatic (body-based), and hands-on learning, students get the opportunity to put STREAM principles to work and learn their value for clinical and self-care purposes.

 

Three workshops are required for STREAM certification.

Workshops take place in Ashland, Oregon. Workshops build progressively, based on the material from previous workshops. We highly recommend that each workshop be taken in order.

Workshops are open to a limited number of students to provide the best learning experience possible. STREAM certification candidates will be accepted first. 

 

If workshop space is available, each STREAM workshop will open up for qualified students for their personal and professional development. If you are new to STREAM please book a call with Ellen to find out if STREAM live workshops are right for you.

Addressing our connection to clients and their buried stories is foundational to the STREAM approach of working with unseen scar tissue. The focus of this workshop is twofold, providing specific techniques for somatic education while offering you and your nervous system many options to expand your ranges of regulation.

 

Somatic work for active listening and co-regulation is where we begin. We progress to embodied listening skills by doing the hands-on work of sharing weight and holding bones. Bones have deep stories to tell when we permit the part of ourselves that knows how to hear to listen at a profound level. 

 

The somatic work in this workshop requires everyone to be self-responsible for holding their own weight while in contact with another body. The trust engendered by body-to-body connection allows stories to emerge organically, rather than auto-pilot responses left over from unexamined trauma, behaviors, and habits.

 

This workshop is an embodied approach to storytelling and active listening. It will help to shed light on the effects of unseen scars. We must become aware of unseen scars before examining their role in our lives.

What people say about
STREAM WORKSHOPS

“After our lecture today I took a movement class and thought about what I learned about the pelvic floor and obturator muscle, and I was able to feel the lift in my whole pelvic floor and sit bones for one of the only times I can remember. Education–and feeling that change and healing are possible is so powerful!”

ASSESS the BODY:

WORKING WITH EMOTIONS & SCAR TISSUE

Workshop Cost: $1,300

Date: September 15 - 18, 2022

Time: 8:45 am–5:45 pm

ASHLAND, OREGON

This four-day workshop takes place September 15–18, 2022, from 8:45 am–5:45 pm, with a 90–minute lunch break. This workshop is a requirement for STREAM certification. We expect to have a few spots left for non-STREAM students. Click the button above to apply.

 

This workshop demonstrates how the body’s structure and function affect each other. Learn to assess postural habits and how to release the muscles that create those habits. 

 

Gain comfort with structural anatomy to confidently bridge the gap between muscular and emotional tension. Improve your ability to perceive while learning how perception differs from projection.

 

Negotiating consent is crucial to success in hands-on work. We'll talk about the importance of consent, and how the needs of  the body-unconscious differ from cognitively-based consent models.

 

By examining emotions, gestures, posture, structure, and the through-line connecting them, we develop the ability to read the body at both energetic and pragmatic levels.  

 

We’ll look at the variety of scars and their origins, reaching from emotion to posture. Decoupling scars from emotions is powerful work.

 

The information in this workshop provides a template for effective work with both psyche and embodiment, bridging the Cartesian divide.

ASHLAND, OREGON

This four-day workshop takes place September 22-25, 2022, from 8:45 am–5:45 pm, with a 90–minute lunch break. 

This workshop is open to STREAM certification candidates, Nurses, Midwives, and Sexological Bodyworkers Only.

This workshop focuses on mapping the pelvis and scar tissue remediation. Learn to distinguish pelvic landmarks and their impact on scar tissue location and remediation.

Getting to know the pelvis in three dimensions takes time and skill. Learn the art of pelvic navigation during this four-day immersion in anatomy and accurate identification of scar tissue.

Many lack the language to describe their pelvic floor structure and function. Empower your clients by teaching them how to locate their own pelvic landmarks and how scar tissue affects their function. This workshop will cover both active and passive castor oil applications to treat scar tissue.
