Featuring Somatic Poetry: Interactive Poetry for the Senses

Somatic poetry is spoken-word poetry that invites the audience to play with their senses and participate bodily. For example, the audience uses hand lotion to give themselves a hand massage while following along with a poem to supplement and integrate the feeling of gratitude.

Somatic Poetry is inspired by the experience of being at a poetry reading. At a poetry reading, the audience feels through the poem with the poet and they release their feelings in a shared experience. A Somatic Poetry experience takes this a step further and asks the audience to participate.

Let the words move you, and move in harmony in your body with them. Relax. Release. Heal.
