Somatic Intelligence – Volume 5 (Paperback)


Our modern society has mainly focused on one type of intelligence, although there are others that are just as fundamental to our health and well-being. Somatic, or body intelligence, is one of them. How many times has that ‘last straw’ for your body’s breaking point caught you by surprise?  There are simple ways to avoid the small symptoms morphing into something major. Being able to listen and respond to your body’s signals from within its own communication system is invaluable for this and many other reasons.



  • Description

Chronic pain plagues hundreds of millions of people daily in the U.S. alone, the majority of which is preventable. Our modern society has mainly focused on one type of intelligence. although there are others that are just as fundamental to our health and well-being. Somatic, or body intelligence, is one of them. Although we use our bodies constantly, including physical activities like yoga, pilates, and sports, we are rarely taught to experience ourselves from the other side of the looking glass - from within. I am one of those people.

As a dancer, athlete, martial artist and manual therapist, until I trained in a somatic education course that included self sensing, I was oblivious to the inner world of proprioception. It has transformed not only my physical life and emotional life, but those of all the thousands of clients I've subsequently worked with. It also greatly supports my spiritual life. It’s an invaluable journey that continues to heal, balance, integrate, and amaze.  Once you've developed mindfulness in your connection to your body you will easily learn:

How to Release Each Major Muscle in Your Body in 5 Minutes or Less

This opportunity to experience your body in new ways promises to more fully awaken, balance, integrate, and strengthen you with deepened self-awareness sense abilities. The levels of well-being that arise from somatic re-education and inner standing will open doors to both your somatic and emotional intelligence.  Once you've developed a clearer relationship with your body and know how it communicates and responds with your input, any area of tension in the major muscle groups will release in under five minutes - more likely two or three minutes.
