I found this video when researching Somatic Experiencing trainings…something I’ve pondered taking for a few years now. Especially since I’ve always wanted a graduate degree (achievement driven, yes yes). Yet finding a master’s program that seems to ask the right questions, or provide the right framework, or blend the disciplines I am drawn to has found to be elusive.
My intuition has always whispered, “That’s not the right path. No, not that one, either.” And so, I continue to study, practice, integrate, teach and ask questions.
Embodiment is an ongoing practice and choice, and my devotion is unwavering.
In Somatic Experiencing, the body is recognized, tracked, and inhabited in a way that allows trauma to unfold and potentially, resolve. It’s requiring us to show up, be present with ourselves in our fullness, no matter what joy or horror we have experienced it and express it all. It is in the freedom of feeling and expressing that we become free to live, embodied, liberated.
Thank you, Sage, for sharing this brilliant, heartwarming and humorous talk with the world. I am inspired.
I got full body chills when I watched this talk, and I hope you love it, too.
