Dr. Risa Kaparo - Awakening Somatic Intelligence

As a young adult, Dr. Risa Kaparo successfully healed herself from a painful and life-threatening illness and the discoveries she made during her ordeal prompted her to create a methodology to transform pain, stress, trauma and aging into wellness, embodied mindfulness and vital longevity.   This system, called Somatic Learning® was developed during three decades of research, clinical practice and training of health care practitioners, based on a synthesis of psychological, somatic, and meditative disciplines. Awakening Somatic Intelligence: The Art & Practice of Embodied Mindfulness ($21.95) captures the wisdom of her teachings.

As both a licensed psychotherapist and somatic therapist, Dr. Kaparo has taught Somatic Learning at MIT, New College, JFK University, CIIS and China's Dalian Medical University -- and offered her unique approach to self-healing to thousands of individuals around the world. This system involves simple practices that take only a few minutes a day, yet promote highly beneficial and lasting changes in the brain and the whole body, reorienting a person toward ever greater freedom, joy and aliveness.
