Astrid Schroeder MA, RSME
I am a Registered Somatic Movement Educator (ISMETA), Mindfulness (Mindfulness-Based-Stress-Reduction /MBSR) & Meditation Teacher (CMRP, UK) and dance movement facilitator (JD, USA) with a degree in psychology and MA in Dance and Somatic Well-being (Body-Mind Centring, Continuum Movement, Somatic Psychology, Embodied Spirituality, Authentic Movement,, Tamalpa Life/Art Process). Added to that comes a long history of studying under, sitting with and learning from a host of magnificent teachers both well-known and not-so-well known,
My interest is in the exploration of our full human potential across all dimensions of experience: in empowerment, in achievement of a conscious relationship and connection with Self, others and life, in meaning, fulfilment and growth.
My work is primarily grounded in and informed by that of the main somatic pioneers, ecopsychology, Buddhist and depth psychology. It also embodies a wide range of other modalities that support exploration of different ways of being – the process of awakening to a deep connection with our essential nature, being and potential.
“What shape waits in the seed of you
to grow and
spread its branches against a future sky?”
