The Embodiment Podcast


May 1, 2019

Alexander technique teacher and trauma educator Betsy joins me today. We discuss her background in dance, how she discovered trauma work, Somatic Experiencing and Peter Levine, why somatic practitioners need to know about trauma, somatic influence, Stephen Porges, creating “safety”, welcoming vs warning, trauma and identity, flight vs social engagement, the triune brain, “neuro-bunk”, embodiment as a perspective on life, “inhibition”, ground and the empowerment of trauma work. A wide-ranging accessible one with a practical exercise at the end.
