"The Incarnation Taboo"
    A strange mood underlies the culture of entitlement of the "Me" Generation and its maxim "You deserve ...", a very strange mood. It underlies secret envies, artistic perversity, short attention span, half-baked commercial products, gender issues, irresponsibility, and "Don't tell me what to do." Read about The Incarnation Taboo, here.

  • "Why Won't Those Shoulders Come Down?"

  • "Why Somatic Education is a Body-Mind Thing"

  • "A Critique of the Strategy of Ineffectuality"
  • Principles and Practices
  • Organizing Somatic Exercises

      We want our clients to get the most out of our work with them. Central to all somas is "pattern," or organization, and in particular, patterned movement. Good organization shows up as efficient and effective functioning; poor (or random) organization shows up as ineffectual or inefficient functioning. This paper talks about organizing sequences of somatic exercises to bring about higher organization in the person doing them.
  • Somatic Exercises: To Demonstrate or Not?
      The current training in the practice of teaching somatic exercises eschews demonstrations of the exercises in favor of strictly verbal instruction. I donít know how prevalent this view is, but I think that this development of teaching methodology is an inefficient teaching strategy based on an outdated premise or even a gap in understanding of how people learn. This paper is an opinion piece in which I tell you why I think so.
  • Applying Principles
      Some practitioners (after Wave 1) feel that something is missing from their understanding of Hanna Somatic Education that leaves them feeling a bit lost in their work. What might that be? Here, I suggest an answer and a solution.
