and principles of Zapchen Somatics are a direct approach to embodying
well-being, otherwise referred to as "feeling as good as
you can...in spite of everything."
This is a "new" form
of work, and introducing it can be difficult. Since it is new,
there are things about it that are hard to name, hard to describe,
hard to recognize. At the same time, of course, no work is ever
completely new, if it were, it would be unrecognizable. Instead,
it arises from the creative confluence and expansion of previous
work and tradition, often in a new context.
In this case, a wedding has
taken place over twenty years between the relatively new disciplines
of somatics and somatic psychotherapy with the long-established
traditions of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. Zapchen is their child.
Like any child, it reflects the essence of both its parents,
while it also stands free and has its own character.
