Volume IV: Somatics


Jay Ogilvy

June, 2014

The subject of our fourth eZine is Somatics, and our guest editor is Esalen’s own Don Hanlon Johnson, a leader in the field and a professor at California Institute of Integral Studies.

Both in Don’s lead essay, and in the four that follow, you will find a dance of fascinating resonances. For experienced musicians, the hand “knows” the next note better than the brain. For teachers at Esalen, the students and the setting provide much of the knowledge that informs the evolution of Somatics.
