The Body Knows is a professional certificate program in Somatic Psychotherapy for therapists, body workers, and those curious about the body-mind connection with an emphasis on experience, self-knowledge, practice, and integration.
Because you will want to have an opportunity to deepen your understanding of somatic psychotherapy at all levels, this certificate program, unlike others will happen with a small group of 8 practitioners. You will engage in embodied practices, lecturettes, experientials, facilitated group discussions, self-reflection, movement, yoga, creative resourcing, and live demonstrations in an unique learning environment.
