Somatic inquiry is “the process of turning our attention to the life of the body and to first see what is present there”. It is understanding how we organize ourselves in space, how we hold our bodies, how we breath, where we direct our gaze, and the expression on our face. It provides a deeper perception of our emotional and energetic experience.

Building somatic awareness starts with becoming aware of our sensations in present time. It is just that simple and that profound. We will be using the power of mindful movement linked with conscious breathing to tune inward. Physical sensations (such as temperature, pressure, shape, movement, discomfort, tension, ease) are our source of information about the world as it is right now and our relationship with it. Through somatic inquiry we cultivate our capacity to notice, to observe, to be fully present, and to pay attention. We open ourselves to sensation. And in that radical act, we open ourselves to life.
