Somatics is an umbrella term for mind-body practices that has quickly become a buzzword and trend.
Summarizing somatics in one post is definitely challenging haha but here’s my attempt: Peruse the gallery below or read
The term is derived from the Greek word “soma,” which means “the living body in its wholeness.”
The field of somatics is not new despite its popularization over the last century through a process of inquiry into the mind-body-spirit connection.
Somatics is a dynamic potion of political, historical, indigenous teachings, and relational processes that recognize that we have been conditioned to live with insidious persistent threats, limited resources, and overstimulation -which breathes even more true for those living in oppressed bodies (Black, Brown, Indigenous, Disabled, Neurodivergent, Queer +). Notably, Somatics does not pathologize our reactions to living in a trauma-filled unjust world willfully designed to desensitize//disconnect us from ourselves, nature, and humanity.
Somatics goes beyond awareness: an alive, dimensional experience of the self in the present moment.
The human is not merely a self-aware soma, passively observing itself, but it is actively doing//being something simultaneously: it’s acting upon itself; i.e., it is always engaging in a process of self-regulation AND co-regulation. We are ever-changing beings, continuously interacting and relating to people, places, and things in our environment through emotions, movement, and sensations. By understanding humans as a myriad of interconnected systems motivated by simultaneous internal and external data that shapes identity, choices, behaviours, cognitive attitudes, memories, etc, you can begin to live life on your terms through access, ability, position, and agency.
