AINC’s longest-running program, Year of Conversations presents topics related to the brain, the mind, and the body along with their application to mental health and well-being. These workshops emphasize experiential, non-verbal ways of knowing and learning. We gather in a spirit of sanctuary, community, and renewal to explore pathways to helping others heal and thrive. Presentations focus on the work of helping professionals but all are welcome.
CEUs are available free of charge for Austin IN Connection members, and $20 for non-Members. A list of our previous speakers can be found here.

Cultivating Witness: Authentic Movement as a Creative Practice for Healing Early Attachment Wounds with Rebecca Pollard-Pierik, LPC and Lauren Tietz, RCST, LMT
We are offering 1.5 Ethics CEU’s for this event.
Join us in exploring how the practice for Authentic Movement can tap into early attachment patterning and offer corrective experiences—all without words! Born of western dance and dance/movement therapy, Authentic Movement integrates creative expression with therapeutics. We’ll pay close attention to the qualities of the Witness role in the Authentic Movement process, and how these qualities support and fortify the emerging self of the Mover.
Rebecca Pollard-Pierik, LPC, is a psychotherapist in private practice who loves movement in all its forms. www.rebeccapollard-pierik.com
Lauren Tietz is a Craniosacral Therapist (RCST, LMT) specializing in somatic awareness and integration through touch and movement modalities. She is a dance artist, choreographer and somatic movement teacher (MFA). laurentietz.com and earthskybodyworks.net
