The methodology of generative somatics

The body-based approach is based on three main areas of work: Somatic Awareness, Somatic Practices and Somatic Opening. The work is located in a deep analysis of Social Context and a commitment to changing ourselves and the systems we live in towards dignity, justice and interdependence. It deepens understanding of the human psycho-biology, the impact of trauma and the patterning of behavior. Collective practice allows for a different level of transformation than is often possible in individual work.

  • Somatic Awareness allows us to deeply get to know ourselves, to become familiar with our sensations, habitual reactions and emotions, and to practice living inside of our own skin.
  • Somatic Practices allow us to embody new behavior through repetition over time, to study our conditioned reactions and to practice moving within a collective body.
  • Somatic Opening connects to underlying trauma or contractions in a way that is safe, held and connected in order to open space for healing.
  • Social Context refers to the fact that we are not living in a bubble but are impacted by the conditions and forces around us.
