The Body Knows

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.
