Welcome to the Community Prenatal and Perinatal Somatics Lab! Our intention is to educate and support the experience of prenatal and perinatal somatics with special 2 hour classes. Our teachers, Kate White and Frank Carbone, and special guests are fluent in early dynamics and want to offer opportunities to dip into our Blueprint and touch our Imprints.

The experiential sessions will explore prenatal and perinatal somatics in a community that is diverse, inclusive, creative using multiple modalities. These sessions are 2 hours on specific Wednesdays, 2-4 pm Eastern time June 26 through October 23 2024 as a pilot (see dates below), and part of our new Advanced Bodywork in Prenatal and Perinatal Somatics. Kate, Frank and a talented team are assembling to bring to the therapeutic world a somatic oasis that will combine:

  • Embodiment Meditations

"I experienced life changing moments in my Continuum exploration of being a single cell in my mother’s womb. The Continuum dive was during a five day WombContinuum workshop with Frank.

At the start of my journey, I discovered I was in a vast space. It was peacefull and still. It was awe inspiring. This was the sacred space within my mother. I was part of it and we were together in harmonic union. I felt so close to her in a way that I had never been in my life while she was alive. It filled me with joy. I had received what I always wanted and needed: a deep emotional connection with mom where love was fruit of our union. I floated in this seamless loving energy where time had no boundaries. It is a space that has always existed between us and will always exist. I only needed to stop and tune into it.

Since the workshop ended, I have continued to visit this sacred space. My heart has been opened and tenderized through these experiences. I have found a new comfort within myself!"
