Fluid Nature

The Fluid Nature of Being

Embodied practices for healing and wholeness

Author: Linda HARTLEY

The Fluid Nature of Being is a collection of writings by practitioners of Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy (IBMT), an approach to somatic movement education and therapy. The cultivation of consciously embodied movement is at the heart of somatic movement practice. Through embodiment practices, soma – the subjectively experienced sense of embodied self – becomes a vital, living reality and a foundation through which healthy relationship to others, to Nature, and to life as a whole can be nourished.
