Cynthia Winton-Henry

Oakland, CA

July 25 9-5pm workshop with Andrea Isaacs and Cynthia Winton-Henry

Play. Reflect. Gain Tools. Grow. Glow.

Come for a workshop that connects Body Wisdom with the Enneagram. Thursday morning Andrea Isaacs one of the pioneers bringing somatic work to the Enneagram will share her amazing wisdom.Cynthia follows with InterPlay body wisdom.

Andrea begins the day with a keynote: In Every Cell of Your Body: Somatic Work and the Enneagram. Hear and see video of several pioneers working with body wisdom practices and the Enneagram, and you’ll experience somatic or embodiment exercises from many of them. You will have an “Enneagram experience” IN your body. Somatic work is a doorway for using the body to shift your inner state, replacing patterns that no longer serve you to empowering patterns that support living your life as your best self. Join us and experience that for yourself!

Andrea created (EnneaMotion, using movement to embody the Enneagram, and Somatic Focusing, her coaching method), and shifted her own painful shyness to confidence. She has guided thousands of people in 25 countries back to their wholeness so they can live in integrity, have thriving relationships and greater fulfillment. She was co-founding editor-publisher of the Enneagram Monthly, a founding faculty member for the Enneagram Institute Professional training program in 1994, and has been the host numerous virtual programs on happiness and emotional intelligence.

In the afternoon, Cynthia Winton-Henry, co-founder of the 30-year-old global InterPlay practice, happily hosts a time where our body, mind, heart, and spirit all get to play. It’s magical to listen to the wisdom of our body, even more surprising to see how play can foster transformation. It’s often faster than working on things. Who knew? So many of us work extra hard and focus attention on a few limited senses. Perhaps this is why InterPlay is called a headwaters practice for those seeking social health. Social health affects individual bodies. When we open up to more paths of intelligence we get more…intelligent.

In this workshop, you’ll explore practices that unlock wisdom and creativity by engaging the birthright practices– stories, movement, voice, connection, and stillness. You’ll learn easy tools for helping clients and groups to shift from trauma and stress to well being. You’ll have more fun in communities of diverse experiences. You’ll get plenty of time to notice and reflect each step of the way. Along the way, we’ll sneak up on some core tools and creative methods successfully used in classrooms, spiritual community, organizations, therapy, activism, coaching, with marginalized populations, racial healing, and international bridge building including

• Self-care techniques for personal and professional life
• Ways to lead life in more playful, life-giving, embodied ways
• New creative strategies to deal with life’s challenges­­­
• Specific ways to create healthy relationships, group and family interaction.
