EQUUSOMA® Foundations of Somatic Experiencing® – ONLINE


**This module cannot be taken independently as a stand alone training. Students registering for this module must have completed Fundamentals I prior to attending. This module is required for all students who do not have a prior background in Somatic Experiencing®.

July 25-29, 2022
Starting Monday July 25, 2022 , 4pm to 11pm Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) (or 7pm to 2am Eastern Daylight Time). Please note: This training accommodates a Gold Coast, Australia time zone, which means it begins Tuesday July 26, 2022, from 7am to 2pm AEST. There will be a 1 hour break and two 15-minute breaks.

Days 2-5 will begin sooner to accommodate a check-in group (small groups of students will be assigned to a training assistant to meet daily for support and debriefing before the teaching begins). Time to be announced.

Please use World Time Buddy to determine the hours for your time zone.

**Note: If there is a power, internet or Zoom outage that lasts longer than 10 min, we will reconvene the next day and extend the training by a day to make up the time. Due to scheduling, we are unable to lengthen the amount of time each day to make up the time lost due to unexpected technical issues.

*The length of the Level 1 modules for 2022 has increased per student feedback. This module has increased from 2 to 5 days to ensure enough time for practicing and skill building.

Training Process

This is the next step in taking the EQUUSOMA® continuing education certificate program. If you do not have a background in Somatic Experiencing®, you must register for this module prior to taking Fundamentals II.

When you have completed all the requirements for EQUUSOMA® Level 1, you may progress to Level 2, which includes the live Practical Intensives.

While we have had demand to offer the in-person modules all over the world, we are unable to fulfill all requests at this time. However, as our training team grows, our goal is to offer the Practical Intensives in more locations. Due to the hands-on experiential nature of the Intensives, a limited number of spaces are available per module. We appreciate your patience and enthusiasm as we do our best to meet the growing demand at a pace that is sustainable.
