Why Practice Somatic Centering? In this moment of profound transformation, fear and upheaval, more than ever we have to center on what matters most. Centering in the body, mood and our commitment gives us a pragmatic, body-based place to return, organize ourselves purposefully and have this inform our psychobiology. Antiracism work is felt not intellectual. Centering builds presence. This is a practice developed by generative somatics that also has lineage in many ancient traditions.
