Remembership™️

The Remembership™ is a one-of-a-kind membership for Somanauts. It is about creating community - a thriving ecosystem - both within The Somatic School and without. This is a membership about remembering - reconnection at every level: with your own body, with the bodyminds of others, with those you serve, with your business, with all things. At home in your body, at home on this planet. Our hope is that the positive impact of this work will be reflected in our wider communities: for our generation and beyond.

Within you there may be a knowing of a simpler, more connected, more human, more loving way to be with ourselves, each other, our businesses and our planet. Let’s remember together.

About Earth Body

The Body You Belong To

There are cultures throughout the world whose acute sense of connection to all living things is embedded in their way of life, and whose worldviews inherently uphold ecosystem health (of which we are a part). Through listening to and learning from a multiplicity of worldviews, we might begin to move closer to a depth of attunement that honours our interconnectedness with the web of life and supports us in embodying our wholeness. This is not about attaining a superpower, adopting inauthentic practices, or transcending our earthly reality. It’s about remembering the roots of our humanity. Feet on the ground, feeling this body, breathing this air, living on this planet. Together with Nathalie and Nathan, we will learn from guardians of our natural world, including people who have an unbroken connection to the land on which they originate passed on through generations.

This is a journey of reconnecting to our place amongst all things, fundamentally of and as nature.

  • We'll engage with carefully chosen resources whereby people from cultures all over the world share their stories and messages of living with attunement to the living world.
  • Together we'll explore how these stories connect with each of us as unique beings, and how we might embody emerging wisdom and apply these understandings in our lives.
  • We'll take an ecosomatic lens, honouring and harnessing the interwoven and reciprocal relationship between the Earth and our bodies.

About Immersions

Coaching With Body-in-Mind

Would you like to deepen Body-oriented Coaching learning, hone your craft in community, and receive ongoing supervision and mentorship? These ICF CCE accredited training days with Nathan and Sam offer a layered immersion in the Body-oriented Skills map, helping you unlock three potentials in your coaching practice: Freedom, Flow, and Fluency. Each Immersion shows you a seamless skills sequence. Like being taught a yoga flow, a dance routine, or a conversation set, each Immersion builds your repertoire.

Practice = Competence. Competence = Confidence. Confidence = happy coaches and satisfied clients.

  • As a group, we’ll explore a powerful combination of a Foundations, Layer 1, Layer 2 or Layer 3 Body-oriented Coaching Skill to form creative flows from one skill to another.
  • Longer demos will offer examples of these in practice and the seamless weaving of one skill into the next. With clear beginnings, middle and end, these demonstrations will illuminate the applications of the skills in the context of a full coaching session.
  • Reunite with your peers from the Accredited Diploma in Body-oriented Coaching, meet and mingle with Somanauts from other intakes; practice, learn, laugh and grow your coaching competency in community.
