"When we are alienated from the wisdom of the body, our lives become theoretical and abstract, and we are distanced from the direct, felt sense of living" - Richard Strozzi-Heckler

Richard Strozzi-Heckler is the founder of Embodied Leadership and the original somatic training institute.  He puts forward the idea that the body is not merely the vehicle which is controlled by our minds. Rather, the body is connected to the self and within it exists great knowledge and learning capability. Tapping into the combined somatic (body) and mind experience creates the possibility for a new way of learning and growing. 

The coaching conversation will include open discussion and somatic exercises that you can take with you to further explore personally and professionally. You will experience and feel the power and energy created through somatic exercises that combine the mind and the body.

During the coaching conversation we will

  1. Discuss the mind/body connection and how to explore this connection with coaching clients.
  2. Practice a few Somatic movements/practices.
  3. Discuss what our own bodies are telling us when we are with clients.
