The Importance of Somatic Education
Reclaiming Somatic Intelligence is Activism.
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.
