In Martha’s most recent publication,  Mindful Movement. The Evolution of the Somatic Arts and Conscious Action she shares specifics such as:

  • The history of the field of somatics and the evolution of its related fields – somatic psychology, somatic bodywork, somatic movement, somatic dance, social somatics, eco-somatics, somatics and spirituality, and body-conscious design. Watch Dr. Eddy’s lecture here.

  • What is somatic awareness – the body-mind connection and how is it infused in higher education.

  • Politics and Somatics: how does the body, race and activism impact the world? How is race important to one’s relationship to practicing or teaching Bartenieff Fundamentals, Body-Mind Centering®, Dynamic Embodiment, EastWest Somatics etc.
