Discover how to follow the somatic intelligence of your clients and guide them through powerful practices that help them access their innate wisdom and inner truth.


Somatic facilitation is a holistic approach that recognizes the interconnection between the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. It acknowledges that our physical experiences, sensations, and movements hold valuable insights into our psychological and emotional well-being. By working with the body as a gateway to personal transformation, somatic facilitators help individuals access their innate wisdom, release stored trauma, and cultivate a deeper sense of presence and authenticity.
Our Somatic Facilitator Training program is carefully crafted to provide a rich learning experience that combines theoretical knowledge, experiential learning, and practical skills development.
