Somatic is a Greek word referring to the living body in its wholeness. “The human form contains our acting, our thinking, our feeling our perception and our spiriting” (Richard Strozzi-Heckler). While our Western understanding has created a distinction between mind and body, recent learning (as well as ancient wisdom) has shown the mind to be embodied and we are continuing to discover the importance of mind-body integration. The body is also a gateway for learning and transformation. This page contains some of the resources to support transformational body work.
