Our bodies hold a wealth of knowledge that, with the right tools, we can tap into at any time.


Our physical habits—of sensation, posture, and movement—reflect implicit knowledge of our histories of trauma, relationships, and resources, as well as our future possibilities. However, this wealth of information often eludes our awareness. The intention of the somatic practices in this card deck is to experientially illuminate the innate and unique knowledge that resides in our bodies, and to nurture a more deeply embodied connection with ourselves, others, and the world.


The cards are divided into fifteen themes: ancestors and community, body connection, body sensation, boundaries, breath, containment, culture, five fundamental movements, grounding, mindfulness, movement, posture, the senses, positivity, resources, and the future. Our bodies have different lessons to teach us at different points in our lives, so readers are encouraged to revisit these enlightening, somatic exercises time and again to glean new insights.


Whether you’re a clinical practitioner using the cards as a visual, illustrative practice alongside psychotherapy, or a layperson  interested in learning more about your own body, the Body of Knowledge Card Deck will help you on the path to self-discovery and improving quality of life.
