SOMA

is the Greek word for body. The practice of somatics is an inquiry into knowing ourselves and the world around us, by listening to the body and its language.

The Somatic Institute for Women offers educator trainings, workshops & resources that foster a deep connection with your somatic world, This connection can gift us with living life from the direct experience of wholeness, from who you are at your core.

 

From this place, you are able to rest into a natural sense of freedom and belonging, sourced from within, as the foundation for how you show up in the world.

Maanee Chrystal is a Somatic Psychotherapist, Dance Therapist, Erotic Educator &

Somatic Integrative Trauma therapist. 

She is an embodied researcher of the hidden, suppressed & denied aspects of self & the collective. Maanee weaves her innate capacity for deep feeling and sensing through the body, her love for the shadow & reclamation of the organic feminine principle into unique offerings & trainings through her school,

The Somatic Institute For Women. 

Maanee recognises the work in the realm of the shadow, trauma, somatics & womens empowerment as a form of embodied activism. She strongly feels making these themes central to our lives is one of the most important areas to focus on, both individually & collectively

if we desire long lasting and integrated change in a collapsing and disembodied world. ​

She stands for a world where women feel safe, alive and free in their bodies, heart, mind, sexuality, spirituality & eroticism, outside the limited and confined constructs of patriarchal femininity that has contorted women out of their innate embodied aliveness.

This is why she has founded the Somatic Institute For Women.  Read more about Maaanee here.

WHY SOMATIC EDUCATION?

JSPR8364.jpg

Our Western, patriarchal and colonial value systems have conditioned us to look outside of ourselves for authority, education, connection, pleasure, purpose and meaning. 

 

This programming has exalted the mind, intellect and external orientation over the intelligence of the body and our own internal relationship with our visceral, powerful, sensual, heartful selves. We have normalised the constant and dissatisfying reaching and searching for fullness, nourishment and connection outside of our own skin.

 

Through this, our culture has become painfully disembodied, operating primarily from unprocessed personal and collective trauma.

As well as seeing our intellect as separate from our body-self, we also perceive and experience ourselves as separate from each other and the world around us.
