Healing Embodied Oppression, with Rae Johnson, PhD

The Embodied Way Podcast

Long before social injustice becomes obvious and explicit, our bodies  experience it, internalize it, and embody it as non-verbal patterns. In this conversation with Dr. Rae Johnson, a scholar working at the intersection of somatic studies and social justice, we expose the mostly unconscious behaviors that perpetuate oppression in an embodied way,  how oppression is experienced as a bodily felt sense,  and how we can learn to undo oppression through the body–– both as we experience it and as we inflict it on others. Rae Johnson, PhD, RSMT is a queer-identified scholar working at the intersection of somatic studies and social justice. Key themes in their work include the embodied experience of oppression, somatic approaches to research, and the poetic body.  They are the chair of the Somatic Psychology Doctoral program at Pacifica Graduate Institute, and the author of several books, including "Embodying Social Justice".  https://raejohnsonsomatic.com/
