Dear friends of Dancing Rabbit,
Our hearts go out to everyone dealing with the impact of the spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities and around the world. This is a global-scale challenge in taking care of ourselves and one another that is already bringing to light the scope of potential for humans to act cooperatively and selflessly.
At the Center for Sustainable and Cooperative Culture, we’re thinking about what we can offer our extended community to help you all increase your resilience in the midst of this time of great uncertainty and rapid change.
We’re partnering with Dancing Rabbit resident Angela Johnson to offer an online BodyTalk Access class this Friday that will empower participants to revivify internal lines of communication within the body-mind in order to create greater resilience to stress and other detrimental factors to long term health.
We hope this will help you clear your mind, reduce the stress response, boost your digestive and immune systems, and improve your ability to understand what your body-mind needs; to tap into its highest capacity while dealing with increased risk of viral sickness, self-quarantining, social distancing, and a suffering economy as a result of this pandemic.
The BodyTalk Access class will be held Friday, March 27 on ZOOM, 9:30am – 5pm, available for LIVE-Participation-only and limited to the first 20 participants. Click here to register, or read on for more information.
The BodyTalk System is a comprehensive, holistic form of physical-emotional healthcare from Australia that operates under the premise that the body is not separate from the mind and that the body-mind itself functions as a self-restorative organism with an innate wisdom animating all processes. BodyTalk is dynamic systems theory applied to health, recognizing state-of-health as a reflection of the level of overall coherency of the flow of information throughout all lines of communication down to the subcellular level. BodyTalk aims to integrate all parts of your being to allow your breath, blood, and energy to flow freely, reducing stress and optimizing your immune system. We love the 5 BodyTalk Access techniques, because they were adapted specifically for the layperson to be simple, gentle, effective and non-invasive.
Angela’s first introduction to BodyTalk was in South Dakota in 2011. She received sessions that resulted in a complete reversal of decade-long debilitating lower back pain. Adding the BodyTalk Access techniques to her daily self-care routine allowed her to run again (watch her tell her story here). Angela has now been a full-time BodyTalk Practitioner for 7 years and teaches BodyTalk Access classes across the Midwest. She has worked in person and remotely with hundreds of people to reduce stress, boost immune system functioning, and stimulate the body’s innate ability to repair itself across many dimensions of illness and dis-ease. She has lived at Dancing Rabbit since 2017 with her two teenage kids, Prairie and Sam, moving much of her BodyTalk work online.
There are no prerequisites. You will leave the course with an experiential understanding of how to use and incorporate the 5 basic BodyTalk Access techniques into your daily life and routine to continually boost your sense of well-being in these trying times that are turning out to be a marathon for the nervous system (versus a sprint). Once learned, the techniques take less than 15 minutes to practice on your own and you will be able to add it into your life from day 1 after the course. You will also be able to apply the techniques “remotely” for loved ones who may be quarantined separately.
Normally, BodyTalk Access is taught in a live, in-person class setting, so students can practice on physical bodies. However, in response to the urgent need for people around the world to quickly reduce stress-levels and upgrade immune system efficiency without leaving their homes, the International BodyTalk Association has approved Angela and other BodyTalk Access Trainers to teach this course online with a special emphasis on applying the 5 BodyTalk Access techniques remotely for loved ones who are quarantined separately. To ensure that each student learns the skills fully and effectively, online class size is limited to the first 20 people who sign up. All students must attend live, as this class will not be recorded.
Wishing you all a sense of steadfast resilience,
