About the Author

Don Hanlon Johnson is a professor of Somatics at the California Institute of Integral Studies; he founded the degree program there in 1983, the first of its kind. He is the author of Bone, Breath, and Gesture, Groundworks: Narratives of Embodiment, and The Body in Psychotherapy, among other books. He is a contributing editor of the professional journal Somatics and the director of the Somatics Research Center at CIIS, where there are several studies in process about the relevance of Somatic methods to major issues facing our society, including programs in rehabilitation and recovery, PTSD, and the education of parents for bonding with their children. He also directs the Somatic wing of the Esalen Institute.


"This is an extraordinary, brave, and important book, bringing together the wisdom of a diverse group of inspiring individuals who have worked in the field of somatics. It is also a book that will touch all those who read it."
--Rev. Joan Jiko Halifax, Abbot, Upaya Zen Center

"A well-orchestrated body of ideas, embodied in the psyche and narrative experiences of others across cultural ethnicities, at the intersections and across disciplines. Much for us to reflect upon."
--Alan G. Vaughan, PhD, JD, Jungian analyst, C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, and core psychology faculty at Saybrook University
