Message from the President...

We are proud to offer you the rich educational resources of our Association. 

Our Alliance of Somatic Educators comprises master trainers from the field of Somatic Psychotherapy and includes a broad range of approaches focusing on body-mind integration. 

Our somatic educators are on the leading edge of embodiment practices—as the creators, researchers, authors, and developers of the new approaches, they can best teach you the science and theory behind their methods. 

We offer the latest developments to working somatically with your clients. For an affordable price, our courses are a unique opportunity to broaden your somatic education and remain up-to-date on evolving somatic discoveries and body-mind approaches.
