Rejuvenating the Female Ecosystem: Somatic Process as Healing Process, with Dr. Eden Fromberg
Epigenetic research reveals that 80% of our gene expressions are influenced by the quality of our interactions with our inner and outer environments - nutrition, lifestyle, movement, mindset, and emotions. How you perceive and calibrate alignment, effort, relationships to gravity, emotional qualities, expression, and presence in time and space can either exhaust or revitalize the essence of your being, influencing everything from the structure of your DNA to the framework of your life. Develop essential resources to nourish and more fully inhabit and innovate your own internal environment via biointelligent movement and yoga practices integrating movement, sound, breath, energy, and awareness spanning physical, emotional, and spiritual landscapes. Sound and breath transcend culture and dissolve the inhibitors in the body's resonant connective tissue and fluid systems to awake ancient wisdom encoded in our neurology, cells, and DNA. Enjoy a fresh lens of awareness and expanded internal landscape in which to cultivate hormonal and spiritual balance, renewal, rejuvenation, healing, fertility, creativity and well-being.

There is a science behind everything that is sacred and which has intuitively and empirically sustained us throughout the generations of our mothers and ancient grandmothers. We will touch and contemplate these sacred truths in the context of modern obstetrical and midwifery science and practice in various clinical settings to deepen our wisdom for our professional development and for the benefit of our communities.

She is also a somatic movement and yoga clinical researcher and Founding Member of the Fascia Research Society who owned a NYC yoga and prenatal studio for over 13 years. She partners with her long time best friend and internationally renowned “guerrilla midwife” and author, Ibu Robin Lim, CNN Hero of the Year 2011, and Yayasan Bumi Sehat, Healthy Mother Earth Foundation and sustainable childbirth klinik in the cultural hub of Bali, Ubud, providing gentle, physiologic and culturally sensitive childbirth services in marginalized communities and disaster zones in Bali and beyond.

MAGIC SQUARE YOGA
The magic square, an alignment system rooted in Chinese and Indian numerology and geometry, is a recapitulation of the structural embryological blueprint contained within our double helix of DNA, and the body is constructed in a series of similarly shaped asymmetrically arranged spirals. As we move through life outside the womb, our responses to the world shape our bodies and emotions, and we hold tensions and memories in our tissues and organs as we literally spiral out of ourselves. The magic square represents an opportunity to consciously explore the primitive gestures that shape our lives in a highly structured context, bridging the spiritual and physical landscapes of the body in a magical dialogue of embodiment. Through pattern, repetition, imagination, breath, sound, and movement, learn to use the magic square to inform, enliven, and nourish your being.
BIOINTELLIGENT YOGA & MOVEMENT WOMEN’S HEALING RETREATS
Deepen awareness and connection
Activate the healing process
Embody your creative potential
Become inspired by your own life
Biointelligence is the inner wisdom contained within the intricate ecosystem that is your body, including and encompassing the cells, DNA, connective tissue, hormones, fluid, neurology, and every organ, gland, gene, corpuscle and fiber of your being. This inner wisdom is meticulously and intensively calibrating every aspect of your functioning and movement, voluntary and involuntary, conscious and unconscious. When you are optimally interconnected and energized, you look on the bright side, you feel inspired, and you are able to respond resiliently to insults and injuries. Yet this becomes elusive in a world that does not honor your deep intuition and awareness, your innate desire to care for yourself and live in coherence and wholeness. We live in an industrialized, technologically overwhelming culture that profits from distracting us from our true natures, and usurps the power and energy that would otherwise nourish our imagination, creativity, curiosity, and fulfillment in the world and our lives. Unplug from the relentless overwhelm, reach behind the stories that keep you awake at night, unravel the thicket of old and new stresses, scars and traumas that inhibit the free expression of who you know you really can be, and learn techniques and practices that can forever enhance your life. Your guide and mentor will be Dr. Eden Fromberg, an innovative, holistic OB/GYN, yoga therapist, somatic movement educator, and visceral organ and connective tissue specialist practicing in the osteopathic medicine tradition that pioneered the concept of wellness, and the essential idea that the structure, alignment and movement of the body are vital to support the function of the organs and glands, emotions, and expressive potential. Our structures - our bodies, our genomes, our microbiomes, our fascia, our DNA - are responsive to our environments, our diets, our emotions, our thoughts, our relationships, our memories. Scientific research confirms this, and we are quickly emerging from a paradigm that treats the body as mechanical and does not acknowledge and support the expression of the biointelligent wisdom within. Our bodies are vast and intricate physiological and emotional landscapes holding our memories, fears, hopes, and dreams. Dropping the consciousness deeply down to the level of the organs and the bones via exploring relationships with gravity and nourishment gives us the opportunity to slow down our lives and cultivate what is called "proprioceptive inner awareness." This awareness informs us of where we are in time and space and navigates the edge between physical and emotional experience and expression where healing and creativity can emerge. When we are overwhelmed and holding it together, we are anxious and lack clear boundaries. When we are grounded and buoyant, we are stable and secure. Discover universal and personal therapeutic formulas incorporating movement, sound, breath, energy, and awareness that navigate the time-space continuum of your own life, and become joyful and inspired by your body's imagination, curiosity, and deep inner intelligence.
