Re-Bodying Life: Tamalpa Life/Art Process for Trauma Healing

Recovering from trauma requires that we recuperate the capacity to inhabit our bodies. The Tamalpa Life/Art Process offers an effective therapeutic model that not only recognizes the body in its full dimension, but also facilitates connection to preverbal and symbolic aspects of self, which are beneficial when working with trauma. The language of the arts provides a world beyond analytical thought and conventional communication, allowing for a path to access and give form to sensations, emotions, memories, and images that may not be able to be expressed solely in everyday language.

In this experiential workshop, Rosario will guide participants through various somatic artistic interventions in order to learn how to safely resource and support trauma healing. Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the value of combined somatic and artistic approaches for healing trauma.

  2. Learn basic Somatic-artistic techniques and interventions for processing trauma.

  3. Develop awareness around self-care & resources to modulate arousal.

This workshop is open to anyone interested in healing trauma for themselves or others. No previous dance or art experience is required.

with Joshua McClain


Music has the power to move us, helping our hearts to open up. Movement and the arts become the language that help us to give expression and shape our feelings, allowing us to reflect, process and work on themes that are important to us.


Join me and my husband Joshua McClain for a journey into your feeling body. Through movement and the expressive arts, and supported by the voice of the cello, participants will be guided to listen and creatively explore matters of the heart. 

No previous experience in dance/art needed.
