Somatics and Leadership Symposium
December 7th 2019, Dance Limerick


“Becoming Embodied Change Agents in an Evolving World”


An ISMETA 30th Anniversary Event


On December 7th 2019, the first Irish Somatics symposium will be held in Dance Limerick, St. Johns Square. This symposium brings together diverse practitioners from the fields of somatic therapy and education, somatic psychology, dance movement therapy/psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, BMC, authentic movement, and members of the performance community who are working with somatic forms.

The particular focus of this symposium will be embodied leadership: how stepping further into our individual and collective empowerment can have a regenerative influence in Irish life; expanding our influence in wider spheres such as performance, health, therapy, education, politics and environmentalism. This symposium gathers together for the first time pioneers and participants in the fields of Somatics in Ireland. It aims to foster a community of somatic practitioners who wish to explore possibilities for furthering our professional reach and influence.

Hosted by SOMETI (Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Ireland) and supported by ISMETA (International Somatic Movement, Education and Therapy Association) and DANCE LIMERICK.
