Resources

Books

Many of you have asked if there are any books or articles that could be used to dive deeper into my somatic work, especially after noticing the differences in my approach when compared to other “Somatic” classes taken in the past.

In an effort to share resources I’ve listed a sampling of books written by one of my most influential teachers.

They’re all excellent. Depending on how you’re jumping into this work feel free to reach out for recommendations on where to begin.

Check back often, I’ll be adding to this page whenever I come into contact with a resource or group I feel may be of help.

Winning is Healing – Basics: An Introduction to Body Awareness and Empowerment for Abuse Survivors

By: Paul Linden PhD


description:

An abridged, easier to read version of the full book. It covers the core exercises and concepts in the body-centered approach I have developed for working with abuse recovery. The work is based on the ideas that powerlessness is the core of the trauma wound, and that growth and healing must be anchored by tangible experience of success in controlling the environment. The book focuses on practical, step-by-step exercises which show how to work with breathing, muscle tone, posture, movement and intention to develop body awareness, power, love, effective boundaries, and safety. 150 pages. (Also available in German as a paper book. [i]Das Lächeln der Freiheit: Sebststärkung und Körperbewusstsein—Ein Leitfaden zur Traumabewältigung[/i])
