What is Somatic Movement Education (SME)?
What is Somatic Movement Education (SME)? The greek word 'soma' means, 'the living body' or 'the body experienced from within'. SME encourages body-mind integration through movement awareness and experiential body practices that promote self education. This is a transformational learning process that can include breath, touch, sound, imagery.
Somatic Movement Education practices represent a variety of body/mind approaches. These practices involve listening and becoming aware of what is happening in and around us. Through learning to consciously re-pattern habitual ways of moving we awaken to our own innate body/mind intelligence.
