We bring a deep, pragmatic, and actionable approach to embodied transformation for movement leaders and formations.

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.
