Eastwest Somatics Since 1990

Eastwest Somatics Programs have been held internationally since 1990. Below are some examples.  Each location offers a special somatic resonance in light of places and faces. Sondra says the guiding principle of Eastwest is, "To encourage the natural being of each person to shine."
