Healing the Emotional Body A SomaSoul Somatic Therapy Workshop


We all have an emotional body...but where is it? Neuroscience reveals that emotions live within our entire visceral body—within our open-heartedness, our heartbreaks, our knotted stomach, and our gut feelings. 

Join Kripalu faculty member Dan Leven as he shares and guides you through his SomaSoul® somatic explorations. Through these explorations, you will learn to listen to—and move through—unprocessed emotions as you:

  • Engage the right brain via the expressive arts to access your emotional body.
  • Translate and transform physical tension into messages that have been locked in your body. 
  • Heal wounds and defenses that live within your body using mindful, compassionate awareness.
  • Develop embodied presence through SomaSoul somatic yoga, qigong, and dance. 

Gain a fuller sense of aliveness as you feel and express the visceral power within you. 

NOTE This program is suitable for healing professionals and individuals looking to deepen their personal healing journey.
