Awakening Somatic Intelligence: The Art & Practice of Embodied Mindfulness



Is it possible that even a slight shift in awareness can bring about such profound

change that we no longer live in the same body or the same reality?

Discover how to engage your innate Somatic Intelligence for healing and self-

renewal - feeling and sensing from the inside-out. Somatic Learning is based on a

synthesis of psychological, somatic and meditative disciplines. This embodied

mindfulness practice potentiates the healing force of neuroplasticity. As your body

changes so does your brain, inclining it toward happiness, compassion and

heightened awareness.


We invite you to start enjoying these benefits of Somatic Learning® practice:

- Reorganize and elongate your physical structure

- Eliminate strain

- Enhance the functioning of your immune system

- Optimize performance

- Develop your intelligence and capacity for learning

- Facilitate weight loss

- Heal and prevent injuries and deterioration

- Maximize freedom and aliveness

- Enhance enjoyment and intimacy

- Embody mindfulness in all aspects of living

As you learn to fully engage your somatic intelligence, enjoying a Somatic Learning

practice for even just a few moments a day could transform pain, stress, trauma and

aging. Once you experience these benefits for yourself, why would you settle for
