The Strozzi Institute- Somatics

Monday Mornings at 10am

Sign Up

The Strozzi Institute's vision: "Our vision is a life-affirming future for all. Our commitment is to leave the world better than we found it. We support transformative leaders and organizations that can meet the challenges of our time – delivering sustainability, interconnectedness, and social equity." Dr. Richard Strozzi has been at the forefront of developing the science of Somatics. 

What is Somatics? 

"At SI, we see something different: our bodies are inextricably linked to the self. We learn, relate, act and think through the body. We become highly adaptive, intelligent, perceptive and aware through the body. Our incredible brains are an organ of our complex body.

So, if we bring our whole selves into the conversation of learning, we can then begin to explore embodiment: both our inherited, learned habits (that may or may not be working anymore) and new ways of acting, thinking and relating that are aligned with what we most care about."
