Introduction to Hanna Somatic Education + Soul Art Journey: The Art of Body Mapping

We meet monthly to get to know each other and socialize, share a bit about who we are and what we do, and learn from each other. Different members share in depth each time.

The goal of the presentations is to teach each other useful tools to grow ourselves, expand our practices, and add valuable resources for our clients. This group is free and intended to be social and educational, not specifically for marketing and networking. If you have a question of whether your work is a good fit, feel free to reach out.

Introduction to Hanna Somatic Education with Kristin Jackson

Hanna Somatics is a somatic method that addresses 3 key unique features:
1) The 3 reflexes that get stuck in response to injuries, surgeries, falls and daily stressors: startle reflex, green light reflex, and trauma reflex.
2) Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA): what happens when the brain is no longer in control of the muscles preventing them from relaxing to their natural resting length.
3) Pandiculations: movements that break the patterns in which we get stuck.
You will have an opportunity to experience movements she teaches clients for their self-care practice and she will share hands-on techniques as well.

Kristin Jackson has been a health and movement educator for nearly 20 years. In 2011 she suffered a traumatic brain injury, knocked her jaw out of alignment, and suffered soft tissue damage. She explored many modalities to help ease her pain, but would find that in time her body would recoil back into her tightness. When she discovered Hanna/Clinical Somatics, she fell in love with this simple yet effective method of exercise that changes the connection between the brain and muscles to release chronic tension. She received her Somatics Exercise Coach Certification and is currently completing her 3-year Clinical Hanna Somatics Education Certification. You can read more at

Soul Art Journey: Transform, ignite, awaken and renew your spirit through the art of Body Mapping with Elisabeth Winnen

A Soul Art Journey is a creative and highly ritualized process that connects you with your creative spirit using a process called Body Mapping. Body Mapping is a very useful tool and can be a very moving experience. You choose a specific area of your life you would like to experience a transformation in. You will create a life size work of art that you will take home. Soul Art Journey art work is not about technique but rather about your individual creative expression.

Elisabeth studied Soul Art and Body Mapping for 2 years with Soul Art creator Laura Hollick and received her Soul Art Guide Certification in 2014. She was featured in the 2014 Soul Art Gallery. She has led small groups and individual clients through the Soul Art Journey process. She is an artist and designer. Born and raised in the Netherlands, she received her Art education in the Netherlands and studied for her Masters in Architecture in Arizona. She creates art pieces that combine a love of of ancient art and architecture and the interaction with nature and the human body. She has studied and practiced principles of Conscious Freedom Coaching with Spyder Carneol, and the writings and meditations of Dr. Joe Dispenza. Learn more at
