Coherence in Motion, with Mark Taylor & Debra Clydesdale

Fri – Sat:10 AM – 5 PM; Sun: 9 AM– 4 PM

Unit III: Primitive Reflexes: April 26 – 28
$650/Unit. Register at

Drawing from Somatic Experiencing® and Body-MindCentering®, Coherence in Motion trains students and practitioners to incorporate principles of human developmental movement into trauma healing work. Embodied somatic movement is a vital tool for trauma resolution. Because the reflexes and movement patterns develop in utero and in the first year of life, they are largely sub-cognitive. Coherence in Motion is particularly helpful in working with pre and perinatal trauma, attachment disorders, and with global high intensity activation. The courses are taught in studio settings and assume that you are comfortable with explorations moving in space, lying on the floor, and in chairs.

Each module:

  • Presents a central aspect of developmental movement theory and embodiment.
  • Offers practice working with movement from an SE perspective, integrating such principles as self- regulation, titration, pendulation, coupling dynamics, and the threat response cycle.
  • Allows participants to recognize movement patterns and reflexes that emerge within sessions and track the autonomic nervous system response to those movements.


Somatic Experiencing Practitioner Training, with Linda Stelte, MED, CCC, SEP

Intermediate I: May 17-20, 2019
Intermediate II: October 25-28, 2019
Intermediate III: February 7-10, 2020

This training, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, offers participants the opportunity to learn a physiologically based approach to trauma resolution. Our bodies house the results of nervous system overwhelm – trauma, and the renegotiation of the trauma comes from attending to the nervous system processes. Over the total of eight modules that this training offers, you will learn to detect and respond to the physiological and psychological effects of the disorganization of our nervous systems.
