BIPOC Embodied Leadership (online)

This nine week course will support participants to vision new possibilities, align actions with vision, and transform toward our longings for freedom and liberation. This course is for Black, Indigenous, and all People of Color who work in social and climate justice movements. No prior somatics experience necessary. Application deadline has passed.

Daily Practice Space (online)

We transform through embodying new practices over time and it is much easier to stay in practice within community. This 30 minute daily practice space is for movement leaders in this time of ongoing change and loss. This space is open to anyone who has already practiced politicized somatics with gs or organizations who practice with gs methodology. This space is free of charge.

gs Practitioners Network

The gs Practitioners Network is an organized network of politicized somatic coaches, therapists, and healing practitioners who have built somatic competence through gs programs.

Is somatics relevant for the movement?

From 2009 to 2010, gs gathered national movement leaders to answer this question. We received a resounding ‘yes,’ to somatics as an approach to transformation for movements. generative somatics is a mind/body methodology that builds embodied leadership to align our personal and collective practices with our principles and to heal from trauma and internalized oppression. Over the past ten years, we have received the same message from leaders, members, healers, and organizations. We are clear that somatics with a social analysis is relevant, useful, and needed in social and environmental justice movements

Our Movement Partners

We have worked with hundreds of movement leaders and their organizations through Movement Partnerships. We began these partnerships in 2011 with Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD) and the National Domestic Worker Alliance (NDWA). We share vision and values with Movement Partnerships, an understanding of somatics as a holistic approach, and a commitment to have a significant impact. Through these partnerships, we work with teams, membership, organizations, and alliances.
