The Theory of Somatics (Eleanor Criswell Hanna)

Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove
S1:Ep7124 mins2000Guest: Eleanor Criswell Hanna

Somatics is fundamentally an awareness of who we are from the inside out.

Professor Elanor Criswell Hanna of the department of psychology at Sonoma State University, explains how we can draw on our first person interior experience to enhance any activity. Often we think of our bodies as a machine or an animal, but Somatics opens our eyes to our bodies as a living experience.

Working with contracted muscle patterns or habituated pathways at the deeper brain stem level can set us free again in our bodies.
