About the event
You are invited to join us for a soothing transition out of the work week and into the weekend - a different form of after work, with no hangover!
We start with some guided slow movement to land in your body and practice tuning into you inner guidance system, so that we can connect to each other within our own boundaries.
The rest of the evening is mainly inspired by the practice of Belly2Belly - a partnered breathing meditation.
As we synchronize our breath, sound and nervous systems we denscend into a deep state of relaxation and co-regulation together.
We are simultaneously holding and being held, while being of service to each other.
From this place we practice to welcome all experiences as part of our process to come closer to ourselves and each other.
* Bring comfortable clothes that you can also move in for the embodiment in between + your favorite snack to share in the break.
* Every exercise is an invitation and you are invited and reminded to feel into your boundaries throughout the evening.
* You can choose to come alone or with a partner and do the practice together or not.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING:
“Through these workshops I discovered a new way of being. I was re-introduced to feeling my body and using it as an additional tool to make more informed choices about where I really want my life to go, moment to moment. The exercises are also perfectly used outside the workshop to come closer to people in my life.” / Sotiris
"Thank you for a beautifully held connection circle yesterday. It felt huge to be a part of and witness the authentic connections that took place under your holding of the space.I feel richer as a result from what I got to experience and I’m looking forward to the next circle”. / Mats, participant
ABOUT SOMATIC RELATING
Deep down most of us long to relate more authentically: to feel met, seen & heard by one another while expressing our authentic self. Yet somehow we all struggle with it, in our awkward and sweet humaneness.
Our nervous system is wired to protect us from hurt, so we have developed coping mechanisms and relational patterns that start operating as soon as we feel unsafe - which is more often than not in a relational context.
As long as our nervous system does not feel safe we cannot be fully open, feel empathy or curiosity about others or dare to express our needs, boundaries & desires.
We are not fully there, so how can we expect to be fully met?
If we start to relate with our nervous system instead of against it, we can develop a sense of safety from within ourselves that then enables more authenticity, trust & vulnerability in our relationships.
Relating with our nervous system means gently training our somatic awareness so that we can start to recognize the state of our nervous system and notice our unmet needs.
It also means learning how to regulate our nervous system, observing when our coping mechanisms & relational patterns come up and meeting them with curiosity and empathy so that they can start to dissolve.
From this place we can start to relate with more of us present, which means that there is more of us here to be met and loved.
This is what Somatic Relating is all about.
Ida is here to reconnect you to the deep wisdom of your body and your true nature. She perceives herself as a relationship nerd and sees relationships as a possibility for both mutual and individual growth.
Ida creates group fields in which our bodies guide us to a place where our hearts can meet, our nervous systems feel safe and all parts of us feel welcome.
She draws inspiration and knowledge from Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, Circling, Embodied Intimacy and attachment theory in her work and always leaves room for the unique wisdom of the group to guide her.
