Somatic therapy is the art and science
of harmonizing your life. The Greek word soma means
“the living body in
its wholeness; or mind, body, and
spirit in unity.” It is a body-centered way of
living that combines bodywork, breath work, movement,
and meditation to bring attention to our bodies. These
disciplines are used for creating physical vitality,
emotional stability, and personal effectiveness; essentially
it’s the harmony of body, mind, and spirit. It
is the ultimate in spiritual cross training.
This simple focus on the body develops
awareness and self-acceptance. It allows us to know
ourselves more fully—how we stand and breathe,
how we express our emotions, how we perceive the world
and experience it.
Body-centered attention, Inquiry and
emotional processes are the primary tools used to explore
the edge of our fears and leave the comfort zone of
our everyday lives; to share the stories of our hearts;
to develop trust and community; and to support each
other in self-discovery.
