Performance Coaching uses the Global Somatics Process, Option Method, bodywork, psycho-physical work, art and movement to address the unique challenges of the dancer, actor, public speaker, and performer.
The Global Somatics™ Process empowers individuals to activate channels between the physical body and energy field for self-realization, authentic healing and conscious evolution. Suzanne River developed this process by weaving many somatic modalities with the art/discipline of relationship. The Global Somatics™ Process encourages the happiness and wholeness of the Natural Body.
A happy body is a fully alive body that expresses a fully alive unique person. With a happy body, you can allow your personality to express your essential self. The term “Natural Body” describes the perfect structure and functioning of the physical body and subtle energy field. The Natural Body expresses intelligence through vibration, breath, movement, sound and touch. This wisdom connects a person to her/his wholeness and participation in all of Nature.
The Global Somatics™ Process nurtures embodiment- the life process of actively seeking and openly allowing the body to reveal its consciousness and to reconnect with the energy field. Complete embodiment is a life quest and yet as simple as loving and living fully here and now. Through Global Somatics™ process, harmony and balance may be restored in the physical bodymind. This allows space for and connection to the healing and transformative wholeness that moves within the tissues of the bodymind.
The Global Somatics™ Process is an approach to the nature of bodymind that includes repatterning through resonance, movement education and intentional touch and sound. This ancient and pioneering transformational process celebrates its roots in Dance, Body-Mind Centering® (BMC™) Somatic Movement Education, Authentic Movement, Movement Therapy, Contact Improvisation, Craniosacral Therapy, Energy Medicine, Voice, The Arts and Ceremony.
If you are booking through the People's Fund (our fund which makes bodywork more financially accessible) each session covers 60 minutes of bodywork. This fund is for people who can't afford the minimum or lowest sliding fee amount of any specific practitioner at the PMC (our fees vary). This fund will make up the difference between what you can pay and a set amount that will be fair payment for the practitioner. We ask that all recipients give something towards their session, no matter how small. The fund covers the rest.
We determine fund pay-outs based on 1) our commitment to centering the lives and experiences of POCI (people of color and indigenous) people and queer/trans people and 2) paying attention to how the fund is shared out among practitioners. Looking forward to seeing you! Apply HERE.
