Body as Resource: Open Floor Movement Practice with Somatic Experiencing

  • 27 Feb 2021
  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Zoom

This event is presented by Stacey Butcher, SEP 

In these challenging times, we are all needing extra support. The most helpful tools for me have been the resources I've learned through Somatic Experiencing and Open Floor Movement, as well as connecting with my community online. So...I decided to provide a space where we can practice together.

In each class, we will explore different resources that will help us through these crazy times.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body-based approach that helps heal trauma in the body and restore balance to an over-stimulated nervous system. Open Floor is a healing movement meditation practice and lively dance inquiry designed to reclaim our lost embodiment. As in Somatic Experiencing, the emphasis in Open Floor is to awaken our sensate experience, emotional intelligence, and mindful awareness. These two make a beautiful combination for deep inquiry and healing.


Join us as we practice essential resources that can be used at home.

~ Deepen our sensate awareness of the body
~ Encourage the body to move from fixed to fluid
~ "Move and Include" all that is arising on all levels
~ physical, emotional, mental & spiritual
~ Develop a greater sense of calm and hope
~ Increase capacity to handle these stressful times

This is an experiential movement class, not a lecture, so come ready to move.

All levels of experience welcome (ages 18 and up). The class will take place on Zoom.


"I love dancing with Stacey and always look forward to her classes. Her gentle guidance brings me into the present moment with loving awareness of my body in space. She is a master at reading the room and knowing when to press on and when to retreat. She lights up when she is teaching and I always feel connected, even when dancing remotely in my living room or across the miles." ~ Marya Mayer

"Stacey’s Body As Resource online dance classes have been such a gift! I truly need these classes to make it through this time in the world where I’m feeling more charged and activated because they loosen up my body, create more spaciousness, and shift my perspective. Stacey is so skilled at holding space and encouraging me to drop in, release and settle my entire being. Her classes allow me to breathe again when I may not even realize I’ve been holding my breath." ~ Kelsay Myers

I'm asking for a $15-40+ contribution per class. Pay what you can. Regular price is $20 per class, but I realize the current crisis affects everyone differently, so pay what you can. Anything you give above $20 will help pay for someone else who can't afford it.

> No one will be turned away for inability to pay, so please don't let finances stop you from registering.

Pre-registration required (no payment needed to register). Please register before the class begins so you can arrive early to be with us when class starts.

Time: Class is 10 - 11:30 am Pacific Time.
