Continuum

Continuum

A Moving Inquiry Training Program

Continuum can improve our sense of connection, range of motion, and general well-being. Trust, fulfillment, joy and new perspectives can arise directly and from within.

What we use is breath and voice, gentle dynamic movement stimulation, and a receptive sensory form of attention. This allows us to perceive movement impulses arising inside the body. Consciously giving space to these complex movements promotes processes of self-regulation that are often accompanied by mental and emotional clarity - a feeling of nourishment, connectedness and safety that is often described as "coming home". We leave our conventional rational orientation; linear thinking is replaced by multi-directional embodied body-mind thinking that can be felt to be beneficial and connect us to greater completeness and awareness.

200h / 8 modules / 8 continuum teachers

The Continuum Continuing Education takes place in a two-year cycle and consists of eight modules, all of them can be booked separately.

Ausführliche Seminarinformationen

What is Continuum?

Continuum is a somatic approach through which we can inquire and learn to tune into our bodies as living events, as an ongoing orchestration of communication and resonance, as creative intelligence operating in every cell. 

We can experience that we are movement and that the movement we are can inform the movement we do. We can also experience direct sensory contact with an all-pervasive regulatory dynamic.

Which background does Continuum have?

Emilie Conrad originated Continuum in the 1960’s and developed it until her passing in 2014. 

This program - taught by an international team of 8 experienced teachers - integrates various decades of Continuum material.

All teachers were trained and authorized directly by Emilie Conrad during different periods of its development. They all carry aspects of the history of the work. By exploring this history, core principles of Continuum can be integrated and new impulses for its ongoing development can organically arise.

How is the Continuum Continuing Education structured?

This program - taught by 8 teachers -  integrates various decades of Continuum material. All teachers studied with Emilie Conrad who originated Continuum in the 1960’s and developed it until her death in 2014.

Emilie Conrad taught in a constant state of inquiry. While each step embedded and enfolded the previous one, it also meant students entering the work in the 80’s were exposed to different material than students entering it in the 2000’s. This program attempts to bring together various Continuum „periods“ by bringing together teachers who were introduced to the work at different times. 

The very nature of Continuum is to witness ourselves as a living process, open to the ongoing evolution of teachings and applications. Even though we follow basic core principles, Continuum remains an ongoing, unfolding inquiry into the mystery of conscious human life. Through the variety of teachers in this program, we hope to encourage students to trust their own inquiry, somatic movement research and to develop their own style.

For whom is the Continuum training?

This program is for people with different somatic experiences, somatic professionals, therapists, teachers, creatives, leaders, innovators - anyone who has a body - anyone who wants to connect more deeply to what it means to be human.

Many participants take part because of their personal experience and can deepen their practice through the contact with 8 Continuum experts. Some single modules assume previous experience with Continuum.

  • to be empathic and relational
  • to be clear and decisive

  • to process and reflect 
  • to be resilient  

Which benefits does the Continuum Training provide?

If you like to become a Continuum teacher, the Continuum Training is necessary, but by itself not sufficient. The process is leaded by the Continuum Teacher Association (CTA). A diverse practice of individual experiences and a qualified mentorship are essential.

With 8 Continuum experts, all of them learned directly from Emilie Conrad and are members in the CTA, the Somatic Academy Berlin offers a high-quality program to integrate Continuum into the context of diverse somatic methods and approaches. Therefore, each individual module also represents a personal gain for individual development and can be booked separately. Taking part of all 8 modules is required for the certification from the SAB.
 
Kai Ehrhardt, curator of this Continuum training at the Somatic Academy Berlin, is a member of the Continuum Teachers Association (CTA) www.continuumteachers.com and will be the right contact to answer further questions.
