Our Spring 2015 issue will focus on Embodied Spirituality. Many questions arose in the context of our theme as well as many answers, though none claimed to be conclusive.
Serge Prengel, LMHC, SEP, and editor of Somatic Perspectives on Psychotherapy, has created many “book” projects to encourage therapists and practitioners to share their insights in our field. He co-edited Defining Moments for Therapists, reviewed in our Summer 2013 issue, started the Life Sherpa project, and is now overseeing What Sustains Me.
