RAE JOHNSON PhD., RSMT

Chair of the Somatic Studies doctoral specialization at Pacifica Graduate Institute, has recently published a book entitled Embodied Social Justice.

Embodied Social Justice introduces a body-centered approach to working with oppression, designed for somatic practitioners, social workers, counselors, educators, and other human service professionals. Grounded in current research, this integrative approach to social justice works directly with the implicit knowledge of our bodies to address imbalances in social power.

In reviewing the book, Dr. Sherry Shapiro, Professor Emerita in dance and women’s studies at Meredith College, writes,

“Ground-breaking and indispensable for critical and feminist theory, this book provides important new ways of thinking about how bodies are shaped, influenced and colonized within unequal societies. In a time of growing social inequality, the author offers real insights into how we might resist the social, political and cultural changes that are lived through our bodies.”
