Because emotions can remain trapped within the body, block the experience of pleasure, and also cause disease processes, learning to open up these centers with movement can transform one's life.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
Women increasingly are feeling disconnected from their bodies with the demands of our fast-paced society and increased dependence on electronic communication. Madeleine M. Castellanos, MD - psychiatrist and sex-therapist has witnessed the disconnect between mind and body in her practice with couples and individuals and states, "There seems to be a growing detachment from one's body, and therefore one's sensuality and ability to feel which presents as an inability to experience sexual pleasure and vitality that is crucial for personal happiness and successful relationships." In order to address this need, Dr. Castellanos has partnered with internationally-known dance therapist Patricia Capello to develop an all-day workshop specifically for women to teach them how to find their way back to their own bodies.
Combining instruction about the brain's plasticity and the factors that contribute to a mind-body disconnect, along with guided active movement, this workshop provides a different perspective from similar ones offered on the same topic. In this workshop, Dr. Castellanos shares her expertise in medicine and gives insight from both a biological and psychological viewpoint, while also describing the neurobiology behind re-establishing this connection. This is intertwined with actual movement with live, hands-on instruction for awakening of what Dr. Castellanos refers to as "the sacred feminine."
The workshop, which will be held in New York City on Saturday, Oct. 15th from 9am-5pm, promises to bring together discoveries from brain-science and modern medicine, as well as vibrational medicine and energy centers of the body. Because emotions can remain trapped within the body, block the experience of pleasure, and also cause disease processes, learning to open up these centers with movement can transform one's life. Advanced registration is required for this workshop. Please see Reclaim Your Sexuality - Workshop for more info and registration.
