Somatic Intelligence: What Every Body Is Dying For You To Know
Tags: Suresha Hill Ed.S.

Hundreds of millions of people leave work every year in 3 preventable types of pain. Billions more suffer in other types of pain that are more responsive to improvement than given credit for. Within the body-mind connection there is a quick, natural, inexpensive way to significantly improve well-being and reduce pain that you can learn. It is a simple, yet ancient way to maintain or regain your health that nearly every modern therapeutic system has developed from. Your body is dying for you to know these methods and we can barely afford not to. Every type of well-being, whether it's physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual happens through the body. However, what happens in the body will be according to its programming or conditioning unless we guide and shape its responses. It runs on automatic pilot unless we intervene. Your body listens and communicates in different ways than your mind does, yet it listens attentively to everything that happens in your mind. Here is where you can develop an effective relationship between them. Somatic Intelligence describes all the levels your system communicates on in detail and offers many ideas on how to tap into them. Once you've gotten the conversation started and speak the same language as your varied systems do, this new relationship helps your body to both prevent and recover from stiffness, soreness, physical pain, emotional pain, and so much more. Somatic education - whereby you connect with your body and learn to use it more fully - has been in practice in Europe and the U.S for over 60 years. The pioneers of this sensory awareness work are the forefathers of dance, theater, psychotherapy, physical education, movement therapy, Feldenkrais, Gestalt Therapy, and more. Every thing you do improves when you implement somatic intelligence principles. The principles and practices in this book provide an opportunity to experience your body in new ways that can strengthen, balance, integrate, and awaken you with deepened self-awareness sense abilities, that for many people enhances artistic performance, while for others stimulates healing. Somatic reeducation and the subsequent inner standing will continue to open doors to spiritual, somatic (body-based), and emotional intelligence that increases and deepens once you learn the simple methods. The potential benefits of tuning in to the intelligence in your body are infinite. An ambitious and sweeping survey of spirit and cellular grit that can help ALL students of the body, whether professionals or explorers to understand the many factors that allow us the freedom to have more control over our destiny than we were ever lead to believe. I know of no other book that weaves the historic view with the latest research in biochemistry, neurobiology and electricity to help us understand the fullness of our biological embodiment in the light of transcendent experience. ~ J. Olivier, founder - Institute for Conscious Bodywork An easy to comprehend, evidence-based guide to sensory and somatic intelligence, Suresha continues to guide us to a higher level of consciousness. The next step in the body- mind integration continuum. ~ Dr. M. Lindauer, B.A., M.Sc., D.C. Suresha Hill brilliantly presents how ancient healing values can cross-pollinate with modern day science. Her explorations and research into the dimensions of somatic intelligence are an elegant synthesis of sincere inquiry. Her book is truly an inspirational guide to anyone who is ready to change from the inside out. ~ Hasso Wittholdt-Mueller, Hp. German Naturopath & Health Coach
