True Body Leadership Training -- Why You Should Do It!

I am so happy to report we have an amazing group of women gathering on June 7th and 8th to take part in our second True Body Leadership Training. We have a few more spots open for women who are ready to learn more about themselves in order to be present to the needs of others.

I would love to tell you more. Please email me at stacy@truebodyproject.org for more info and we can chat or meet in person.

Why you should do it? 

Here's why. My guess if you feel called to this work - the work of understanding self and other, the work of presence, stability, sensitivity and healing, the work of listening carefully to fully understand, the work of bearing witness. If you feel called to it, this is the perfect gateway for you to deepen your understanding of how movement heals and how we can create safe spaces for others to step into their best self.  No movement training required. A willingness to learn and to practice and to share of yourself are the only prerequisites!

Here are the details. 


June 7th and 8th, Shakti Factory, Cincinnati, OH, with Stacy Sims, Founder, True Body Project

About the Training

The True Body Project (TBP), piloted in 2005, has been conducting workshops, residencies, camps, afterschool programs and staff trainings in the U.S. and abroad. This is TBP’s first leadership training to authorize and license the use of the True Body Project curriculum and workbook. Part experiential, part lecture/demo, the TBP Leadership Training will focus on helping counselors, therapists, teachers, yogis, dancers and others understand the somatics of stress and trauma, and how to create a body-centered experience in an integrative setting.
It is recommended that participants who wish to include TBP in their programs participate in the entire weekend. However, the Redefining Trauma workshop focusing on how stress and trauma habituate in the body, has a few spots open for those who wish to begin to explore the topic.

Pricing and Structure

$295 per person for entire weekend, four sessions
$95 for Redefining Trauma session only.
NOTE: In order to be eligible to license the workbook materials and run your own True Body classes, workshops and/or after school program, you need to attend the entire weekend and do follow-up work with True Body Project. Ask Stacy Sims for more information. stacy@truebodyproject.org
