The word somatics comes from the Greek root soma, which means “the living body in its wholeness.” Somatic coaching is a unique coaching style that brings the body forward as an advocate in creating a place for change and transformation. Accredited somatic coach Richard Strozzi-Heckler has been teaching and inspiring leaders from all areas for decades using his methods and Zen-like qualities. Accredited author as well, Strozzi-Heckler has created a resource for the rest of us titled The Art of Somatic Coaching: Embodying Skillful Action, Wisdom, and Compassion, which is an excellent resource for teachers, parents, therapists, coaches, bosses, anyone who is in the position to help others live a more meaningful existence. He calls it a book about "waking up" in a world full of violence, disasters and poverty, and responding with skillful, wise, and compassionate action. If you'd like your mind and body to become one, I suggest you jump on the somatic bandwagon.
