Training in somatic psychology and wisdom to benefit self, other and community
Welcome to Embodywise
Embodywise is a new umbrella organization that sponsors a number of somatic-related trainings including ISITTA Trauma trainings, Hakomi Institute of California trainings, and Couples Therapy trainings.
Becoming an embodied healing professional begins with a willingness to inquire into the mystery of your lived experience so you can access the intelligence of your body’s wisdom.
It takes time, intention and practice to develop as a skilled healing practitioner. Embodywise supports helping professionals to learn from the “inside out,” developing not only therapeutic skills, but also continually refining our most essential tool: our own state of awareness and presence with our clients.
The complexity of our current social challenges–including collective trauma, empathy burnout, and implicit bias among helping professionals–calls for a new paradigm for psychological healing that includes three essential elements:
- Embodied self: Your somatic resilience and your relationship with your own innate wisdom
- Embodied relationship: Your therapeutic skill set for facilitating transformational change that’s nonviolent, compassionate and trusting of your client’s healing path
- Embodied community: Participating in conscious, kind community learning that’s collaborative, inclusive, safe and accountable
Our mission at Embodywise is to support the evolution of embodied healing professionals worldwide to create a more compassionate, conscious and connected humankind.
We hope you will consider joining us on this journey, adding your unique voice and gifts to our growing community.
