School of Unusual Life Learning
Whole Life Education for Holistic Practitioners, Healers, Wisdom-keepers, Creatives and the Existentially Curious.
Directed and Taught by Jeanne Denney (with the help of marvelous others)
“If you want to know how to support Life on the planet, you must understand the language it speaks. Life expresses in movement. To support the dance of life, you must learn to engage this movement within yourself.”
Somatic SoULL (School of Unusual Life Learning) is a multi-level program about human development that helps you take your life to a new level of depth and presence.
Level 1 of Somatic SoULL is a 6 month program that runs (generally) from spring to fall. It teaches how life energy naturally moves and shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. It is about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love. It also teaches how to stay vital in the work of love and how to become fearless.
This natural language is a wisdom teaching, one that historically was held by all people living and working in the natural world. In our time we must work to consciously remember this language of the gesture of life. We must deliberately rediscover how to honor ourselves as natural beings. To do so is in itself a radical and powerful act.
Level 2 of Somatic SoULL is a year of intensive work on applications of Level 1 material. It includes one on one mentoring, distance learning and seminars. This level is currently in development and is available for any students who have completed Level 1.
Somatic SoULL Level I (SS1) takes place over three residential weekends with distance learning and group dialogue in between.
Details of the 2020 program will be forthcoming. Here is what we know.

Professionals or students in helping, teaching or healing work: somatic therapists, healers, yoga teachers, or bodyworkers, for example.
Anyone with an inexplicable stirring within that says "I know I need to be there" is encouraged to apply.
Why do it?
This program will teach you how to be more deeply alive while radically reducing your existential anxiety.
Group learning will deeply support your personal growth and professional practice.
You will joyfully expand your service into stages of life that may be unfamiliar to you and see greater continuity in life processes.
You will deepen your intuition about all stages of life.
You will expand your clients ability to find peace within a culture of epidemic existential anxiety.
You will learn to become fascinated with aging and even dying rather than arrested by fear and discomfort. You will help others do the same.
