This is a 12-part series that brings humans together over Zoom with expert facilitators to guide us and hold space. Be prepared to embark on a monthly experiential journey of remembering where you will be invited to break out of the robotic grind and soften your armour. For each monthly series, you’ll get 4 CFPC Mainpro+ credits (that’s all your mandatory credits for the year, family docs!) 

The Immersive

Understory's Other Foundational Program


The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the more human we'll be.

We designed this experience recognizing that many of the ideas that we’ve been chewing on require time to digest. This 12-part series explores monthly themes that invite women to shed their layers and reconnect with who they are when they are out of auto pilot. Who are you when there are no shoulds and supposed to dos blocking the way?

While many of our offerings are self-directed, we wanted to create one community-based highly experiential journey because, well, we’ve missed you. We love being together and showing up as humans exploring what’s possible when we come together in one magical space.
So, we have crafted an experience that invites us to share and witness each other's humanity so that we can hold and love all of our brokenness in one giant cocoon of keeping it real. 

What's going on here?

Each month an expert facilitator will be brought in to hold space for us, guide us, and support our healing. 

Please, come join us as we take off our armour so we can get off the treadmill we run everyday, and see what we notice when we stop trying so hard. We welcome you to come unmasked and imperfect. 

  • Each month’s theme will be facilitated on Zoom for 90-minutes (sessions will be recorded)
  • Each meet-up will include a guided practice, somatic technique, or good ol' fashioned movement practice (because we believe the mind-body connection is real)
  • Prior to the session, you will receive an email with content and practices that introduce you to the monthly theme so you can being working through the ideas in your own time
  • After the session, you will receive a final email with key insights, practices/techniques to deepen your learning,, a link to the recording, and of course, your CME credits.

Christine Pountney has published three novels and spent the last seven years doing somatic psychotherapy as a Certified Core Energetics Practitioner. She brings compassion and clarity in
helping people to become more aware of themselves, more aware of what holds them back, or keeps them stuck in the same relationship patterns, or has their nervous system in a constantly
jumpy place.

Opportunities to share, observe, reflect and/or just listen - come as you are!
