What you need to know about trauma

Learn the essentials so you do no harm

March 9-10, 2024

Live & in-person

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Trauma education

Starts in...


In this live in-person workshop for trainers, coaches and those interested in the field, you’ll explore the essentials of trauma.

You’ll learn what you need to know so as to do no harm, and to be more at ease in your work or daily life.

This workshop will grow your embodiment, and upgrade your facilitation skills.

What you'll learn at this workshop...

  • What trauma is and isn’t
  • Signs and symptoms
  • What heals trauma
  • How to make your work “trauma aware” (without being “trauma pandering”)
  • Trauma, safety and ethics
  • How trauma impacts learning
  • How trauma awareness just makes you a better facilitator

Who this is for (and NOT for)?

This workshop is for people who:

  • Are completely new to trauma education
  • Have some grounding in trauma, but want a refresh and some new angles
  • Want to go deeper into their embodiment
  • Are a facilitator of some kind (coaches, yogis, dance teachers, therapists, etc.) who wants powerful tools
  • Are open to learning
  • Have a sense of humour and are going to be fun to hang out with for two days whilst exploring a heavy topic (yes, you can have a good time learning about trauma!(

And it’s NOT for:

  • The sensitive easily-offended woke
  • The trauma-malformed
  • New-age crystal-shaggers
  • People who think they know everything already

The flow...

The workshop will start with some trauma basics and a personal exploration of embodied practice, before moving into how trauma relates to leadership and facilitation.

There will be some theory and space for questions, but expect plenty of rich, experiential learning, too.

You’ll get live support and feedback, and plenty of space for connection with other attendees.

You’ll learn how to adapt what you know, along with some of Embodiment Unlimited’s tools, to those with trauma histories.

This in-person experience will give you the opportunity to get feedback from Mark, to strengthen your personal practice, and allow you to work with embodiment more creatively and authentically.

The models...

Content is often improvisational, as it’s different for every group, but some tools we may touch upon include:

  • Trauma (obviously – but please note the is not group therapy but education and personal growth)
  • Meditation (it will be assumed you know beginner techniques, so we can work from there)
  • The Embodied Toolkit (very practical tools)
  • Centring (next level training)
  • Relational work
  • Pragmatic coaching tools, with demos, practice and feedback

Meet your trainers...

Mark Walsh

CEO and Founder, Embodiment Unlimited


Mark Walsh teaches embodiment, trauma education and anti-decadence.

He is the author of Embodiment, Working with the Body in Training and Coaching, and Embodied Meditation. Mark hosts The Embodiment Podcast (2 million+ downloads), and led The Embodiment Conference (1000 teachers, 500,000 delegates). Seeing a theme yet?

He founded the Embodied Facilitator Course, and the Certificate of Embodiment Coaching. Mark has certified over 2000 embodiment coaches, and taught workshops in over 40 other countries.

He gained an honours degree in psychology (despite been an alcoholic at the time), and has taught widely in the corporate world – where he pretended to be a grown up for years – including with blue-chip companies (e.g. Google, Unilever, Shell, Axa, L’Oreal).

Mark has worked in war zones (including founding a trauma education charity in Ukraine), and entertained over 50,000 children. He has headlined International Coach Federation events, lived with the circus and in slums, taught celebrities, and kissed a princess.

Mark is an aikido black belt, and also has 28 years of experience in other martial arts, yoga, bodywork, improv comedy, conscious dance and meditation.

Embodiment is his obsession, life’s work, and frankly, at this point he couldn’t get a job doing anything else. He dances like your dad at a wedding, impresses cats with his stroking, and offends pirates with his swearing.

Mark’s now tired of writing in the third person. It’s getting weird.
