Exploration in Embodiment: Caring for Your Sensory Wellness

Friday June 11th 5:00pm – 7:00pm, $21, for $0-$21 sliding scale option email wellness@utahpridecenter.org.

This workshop is an immersion in all things sensory! How many senses do we really have? What is sensory processing? How can we bring more awareness to our senses? In what ways can we accommodate sensory-sensitive individuals? Explorations in Embodiment: Sensory Wellness will answer all of these questions and more.

What You’ll Learn

In this two hour workshop, students will explore our bodies as sensory processing networks, strategies for optimizing wellbeing, and how to create calming and enlivening environments for themselves and others.

What to Bring

There will be much to learn so bring a journal or notebook if you like to write as you learn.

About the Instructor

Christine (she/they) is a parent to two young children, an avid gardener and plant mom, and a small business owner. She has worked in childcare and disability-related industries her entire adult life including boots-on-the-ground jobs and direct-care jobs. With this eclectic experience, they founded The Stimmy Store, a sensory-inspired shop in Provo, Utah, under the philosophy that “sensory wellness” is a key ingredient to overall wellness.

Christine loves to connect a broad range of topics such as architecture, Buddhism, psychology, trauma studies, and gardening into a holistic approach to mindfulness and self-care. In her workshops, she hopes to get people feeling better in their bodies and to feel more equipped to modify their sensory environments to support wellbeing.
