Stalking Wild Psoas: Journey from Womb to World ~ Lawrence KN

Experience the world in new and curious ways!

Join me October 23-26 in the heartland of America for this most extraordinary 4-Day Stalking The Wild Psoas Exploration. Exploring how we are shaped, quite literally, by the field of experience in the womb and therefore of life itself, we’ll go far beyond our limitations of experience to branch out in multifacted dimensions and taste the wild waters of wholeness that is our birthright.

Because pre-birth, birth, and early experiences profoundly effect our perception of the world and kinesthetically shape the very core of our being I am joined by midwife Barri Malek whos 26 years of midwifery  will help to shed lite on this journey.  We will explore how igniting the belly core (a natural part of  your developmental stages) along with simple playful movements invites our tissue to open and receive new forms of nourishment.

NOTE: Due to an emergency Anna Verwal will not be joining me, I welcome as my assistant Midwife Barri Malek

Barri Malek CNM, MA, WHNP an amazing midwife and dynamic explorer of perception is joining me to help facilitate and give perspective regarding birth that will encompass both our personal journey (whatever we know about our own birth) and our self exploratory process.

Barri brings with her years of watching and participating in birth an awareness of a baby’s journey to earth.  She knows intuitively that babies are very involved with their birth, have preferences, needs, and a profound spirit long before they arrive in their mother’s arms.

Below is an introduction from Barri….

My 26-year anniversary of attending births is today. I have worked in home, hospital, and birth centers. I have midwifed, taught, birthed, raised, and supported women to become fully present in their lives, especially as mothers. For a woman to birth naturally, she needs to be able to feel vulnerable. For a healthy woman, in this assembly line culture of birth, home is the special place where this can occur. I believe that when women are supported in the space and time they need during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum that the journey into motherhood becomes a time of great creativity.  It is a time and space that can be used to unwind from early traumas and to feel safe in our human vulnerability. There is a dual journey of the physiological and the psychological and both of these experiences are valid and important in having a whole and healthy Mom and Baby duo. That is the work I do and understanding and listening to the Psoas is an essential part of this process.

This is our amazing journey, whether a man or woman, each of us as human beings have developed deep within our mother’s womb.  I hope you will join me for this adventure. It is sure to be a lot of fun!

Exploring the Somatic Dynamics of Birth as it plays out in our own Core Expression

Our personal and cultural story is always expressed within our Psoas. Like a palm reader it is possible to read an individual’s history when working with the  Psoas.  Doing so offers us insight into unspoken levels of anguish a person may be consciously or unconsciously feeling.  Prenatal and Perinatal imprints are on an embryological level playing out on a cellular, organ, and tissue level as primordial expressions of our life attitudes and desires.

This workshop explores the Psoas through simple movement that evoke non-linear, fluid directions, and vibrational frequency in a variety of gravitational relationships for the soul purpose of reawakening and revitalizing our primal core.  These explorations can light the primal ignition and awaken the potency of life’s passion deep within our core belly.
