Somatic granddaddy Don Hanlon Johnson gives us a history lesson from the early days of embodiment in the USA at Esalen and the swinging 60’s, to modern politics and environmental concerns and the future of the field. We talk about diversity, East-West collisions, culture, LSD, education, ageing and more. He also presents a couple of lovely experiential exercises. A vibrant conversation.
