Your Body as Your Great Teacher Working with the soma, the greek word for body, is a full Self experience. When we engage our Selves somatically, we are inviting awareness, attention, and intention to the body in ways we may not have ever engaged it before. Somatic engagement means we work with all of the physical components of the Self to relate our experience to being a process that is begun and completed within the containers of our bodies. The intention of somatic engagement is to work in a curious and loving way with our nervous systems, reprogramming them as we heal through our exploration of physical sensation and response pathways. The body sends many signals and responses in all states: preparatory, reactive, homeostasis. These signals help us create emotional responses. When we attune ourselves to hear our bodies as they speak to us, and begin to learn to process these signals, we can learn to reprogram our response systems and pathways. We often use affirmations like,"I am ready to hear + receive all I can learn from my body. I allow it to speak and I will listen." This is intuition-building and is a practice of learning to trust the internal self to guide us towards Right Relationship and decisions. We do this in many different ways, included guided somatic meditation, engagement exercises, journaling practices, speaking/listening, light touch, and using inner vision to guide our understanding of the somatic experience we are exploring.
