Somatic Intelligence Wisdom Academy
Change the way you move your body to change the way you live life.
Ignite the healing power of your embodied Divine Feminine energy to enable your body (rather than your mind) to feel and then release difficult emotions that are trapped in your body — and bring enhanced confidence, pleasure, joy, and emotional freedom into your life.
Experience a variety of somatic practices that will help you embody 3 key elements of somatic intelligence — elegance, sabrosura, and tempo.
Imagine being able to walk through the world feeling liberated, with a deeply satisfying sense of flow, sensuality, and delight...
... free of the limitations that have prevented you from embodying your confidence and living a fulfilling life you can truly enjoy.
There may be a number of reasons why certain aspects of your life aren’t currently manifesting the way you’d like — why you seem to continually come up against roadblocks that keep you from reaching your goals with a sense of profound peace, satisfaction, and joy.
Whether you haven’t yet created fulfilling relationships that make you feel accepted, held, and understood... found work that provides you with a profound sense of purpose... or built the financial stability or optimal health and wellbeing that enables you to do the things you love...
... your mind may not know what’s holding some parts of your life hostage.
But your body does.
You may not have been able to clear, or even identify the somatic imprints of challenging experiences or feelings in your system intellectually. However, your body knows your full story and your truth in a way your mind can’t. Your body can tell you what kind of healing you need — when you understand how it’s communicating with you.
Once you become attuned to your body’s wisdom through somatic awareness, you have the capacity to heal and dramatically transform how you experience life — and how you relate to the rest of the world...
... creating opportunities for change that can lead to a most magnificent life.
According to Chen Lizra, founder of the Power of Somatic Intelligence and the Somatic Intelligence Wisdom Academy, your current embodiment is the sum of all of your experiences and the emotions that arose in your body as a result of all you’ve been through. Everything that’s happened in your life has created the embodiment of YOU.
When you join Chen in her 7-module video course, you’ll discover that if something’s not showing up in your life the way you desire, the root cause is likely coming from emotions or sensations that are quite literally trapped in your body...
... often due to unfelt or unresolved trauma you’ve experienced — whether a dramatic single event or many small, seemingly unnoticed patterns — or from trauma residue that’s been passed down to you from your family lineage.
This is where the power of Chen’s somatic intelligence approach to healing comes in.
With over 25 years of experience, Chen has developed a one-of-a-kind somatic method that’s shown to have groundbreaking results in transforming her clients’ lives every day — drawing on her own recovery from childhood trauma.
Her approach to healing enables you to process emotions that may have become locked inside your body because your nervous system wasn’t able to integrate them...
... and then reclaim parts of yourself that you haven’t been able to access, so you can start living into your fullest potential and your most deeply fulfilling life.
Chen uses two main methods to transform the imprint of trauma — embodiment and witnessing. Witnessing is when you allow others to feel you through the felt experience of your emotions, with deep compassion and without judgment, in an unconditional space of acceptance. It’s a powerful process that enables you to trust, calm your nervous system, regulate, and surrender...
... allowing feelings to rise to the surface and be truly felt, named, claimed, processed, and released.
Embodiment is the practice of somatic movements and how you carry your body, helping you inhabit the five elements of somatic intelligence: elegance, tempo (or enjoyment), sabrosura (or divine feminine energy), intention, and mystery.
When these elements are balanced and working together within, you can enter the kind of flow state where magic happens. It’s your true authentic nature embodied.
Working with embodiment triggers your body to bring to the surface what needs healing, so it can be met and witnessed.
In Chen’s course, she’ll guide you as you learn to listen to the wisdom of your body and uncover what’s blocking you from making your dream life a reality.
Over the seven healing modules of this course, you’ll:
- Experience a variety of somatic practices in every session for heightened bodily awareness and the practice of deep connection to — and love of — your body
- Explore what’s not working in your life as a result of unresolved trauma held in your body so you can start to heal it and open up more possibilities for living the life you truly desire
- Discover how to separate your narrative (the stories in your mind) from your process (the feeling and sensing in your body) — which is one of the essential keys for trauma healing
- Delve deep into the process of somatic intelligence — a powerful method for understanding the wisdom held in your body, how it affects the way you live, and how your body communicates with you through sensations and emotions
- Learn about the 5 elements of somatic intelligence and experience a variety of somatic practices to integrate 3 of them into your everyday life: elegance, sabrosura, and tempo
- Experience the vulnerability and softness of your sensual divine energy and its healing powers
- Allow yourself to soften and be witnessed and witness others in the deeply healing process of the felt experience
- Learn how trauma is formed in the body and how it can be healed somatically, bringing your nervous system back to its natural state and cultivating your own somatic awareness as a foundation for healing
- Learn how to replenish your vitality and energy while reaching a natural high — with a 5-minute somatic practice you can easily repeat your own
- Create stronger boundaries, a sense of protection, and higher confidence as you learn to embody the element of elegance
- Explore the power of touch, which is part of the mesmerizing sabrosura and very important for healing, through a variety of somatic practices designed to help you embody the essence of love and pleasure
With the power of her compassion, acceptance, and captivating presence, Chen will help you explore and embody the element of elegance, to provide you with the confidence, boundaries, and protection you need to allow your sabrosura to flow.
This profoundly healing divine feminine energy can help feel your own unique enchanting power — and embark on a delightful journey of elevated self-love as you fully inhabit your physical being.
By expanding the potency of that stunningly luminous aspect of your being, you give yourself permission to feel good and create thrilling possibilities of replenishment, enjoyment, and self-expression — which are the qualities of the element of tempo.
Join Chen and learn how you can live with optimal health, happiness, balance, improved emotional regulation, enhanced meaning, and an unshakeable core and awareness of your own brilliance.
What Is Somatic Intelligence?
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Modules
In this 7-part transformational course, Chen will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to ignite the healing power of your embodied sensual feminine energy, so you can identify and release trauma and bring enhanced confidence, pleasure, joy, love, and emotional freedom into your life.
This course will feature step-by-step teachings and experiential practices with Chen. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to identify and release trauma and bring enhanced confidence, pleasure, love, and joy into your life through powerful yet gentle somatic practices.
Module 1: Learn How to Listen to the Wisdom of Your Body for Healing Trauma
In this opening module, Chen will provide you with some background on how she got into this work — including her personal story of overcoming trauma — and the decades she spent forming her somatic intelligence method.
You’ll explore the importance of having both felt experience and embodiment work, as Chen shares about the felt experience and the five elements of somatic intelligence.
You’ll learn how trauma is formed in the body and how it can be healed, bringing your nervous system back to its natural state... and then begin developing your own somatic awareness as a foundation for healing.
Chen will guide you through an attunement practice to start to unpack what you feel and sense and identify the narratives you tell yourself — to separate your stories from the processes in your body.
You’ll learn how your body communicates with you through feelings and sensations, while the mind takes over when you don’t want to feel or be with certain thoughts and experiences.
In this module, you’ll:
- Be guided through a somatic practice that allows you to tune in and pay attention to the wisdom in your body
- Discover what witnessing is and how it can help you heal trauma from your body through a powerful felt experience
- Learn about the 5 elements of somatic intelligence and how you can use them to shift your embodiment and, thereby, transform how you live life
- Learn to separate your narrative (the stories in your mind) from your process (the feeling and sensing in your body) — which is one of the essential keys for trauma healing
- Develop higher somatic awareness and an understanding of the process of healing yourself from trauma
Module 2: Reveal What’s Blocking You & How You Can Release the Underlying Trauma So You Can Succeed in All Areas of Your Life
This module will give you the opportunity to start building on what you learned in the first session, as you come back into somatic awareness and continue to pay attention to your body’s wisdom.
Chen will guide you in a humming somatic practice to calm down the nervous system and ground you into trusting in life — which is important for developing resilience and being able to do this body-based work. You’ll dive deeper into the exploration of what your body is communicating with you.
You’ll discover that we often feel blocked or stuck in an area or two in our lives when our body holds trauma. The source of most traumas is from childhood experiences — specifically when we weren’t received emotionally by our caregivers or told (directly or through bypassing our needs) that there was no room for our emotional life. This can limit what’s possible for us, and it’s this part of our somatic imprint that we want to shift and heal.
You’ll learn how, when you carry trauma in your body, you can either become very dysregulated, or you can be fully functional and successful, with something in your life still not working.
Chen will guide you to choose one area in your life in which you’re not getting the results you desire — whether in love, work, or more. You’ll look at what happened in your childhood that was traumatic or truly impacted you...
... and Chen will help you connect the areas of your life that aren’t working as you wish with those childhood experiences, to gain a greater understanding of how what happened to you impacted you and is at the root of what you need to heal.
In this session, you’ll:
- Experience a somatic practice that, when done regularly, can help you develop emotional resilience, grounding, and trust in life
- Identify 1 area in your life in which you’re not having the results you wish for, and connect it to the past hurt or trauma that’s held in your body and needs healing
- Learn how to activate the wisdom in your body and, in just a few minutes, calm down your nervous system from overwhelm and stress
- Gain deeper understanding about the way your body communicates with you and how you can use this wisdom to heal from trauma
Module 3: Open Yourself Up to the Powerful Felt Experience So True Trauma Healing Can Begin
In this session, Chen will guide you to start the actual work of healing trauma through your felt experience — by feeling together with your co-participants and experiencing what it’s like to be felt and profoundly received.
You’ll find how common it is to frequently escape to our minds because we’re afraid to feel difficult emotions. Healing happens, however, when we’re being deeply felt by others and can be with our difficult feelings — until they release.
It’s important to expand our capacity to move through painful emotions, but it’s extremely difficult to do it alone.
With a student volunteer, Chen will conduct a demonstration of witnessing someone and allowing them to be deeply received and felt. She’ll explain how this works, what she does, and what happens to the nervous system as a result — enabling the person to develop higher somatic awareness and receive the healing. You’ll then have an opportunity in breakout rooms to practice the basics of attuning to each other with your bodies — which is the foundation of witnessing.
Throughout this module, you’ll
- Experience a powerful demonstration with a participant illustrating how the felt experience can help you move through difficult emotions that you want to release
- Practice “listening with your body” and aligning yourself with another person’s inner process
- Develop a deeper understanding of how trauma is healed from the body through a felt experience
- Build more trust and belonging in smaller groups and in your larger community of co-participants
Module 4: Shifting Your Embodiment to Transform How You Live Your Life With Confidence, Protection & Solid Boundaries
By this mid-point in the course, you’ve explored and worked with your somatic imprint, your feelings and sensations, and how your nervous system can be healed through the felt experience. Now it’s time to come into the powerful state of embodiment.
To truly heal, we have to do more than process our emotions. It’s equally important to transform how we embody life. Chen will illustrate how we’re embodied as the sum of all of our experiences. And, when you change the way you move your body, you also change the way you live life.
When you work through embodiment, it can trigger your body to bring to the surface what needs healing, so it can be met and witnessed.
As Chen witnesses what comes up for you and your co-participants, she’ll guide you into greater somatic awareness and healing. Some people become triggered during this process. If you do, she’ll guide you to use the humming to calm your body.
Chen will provide for what might come up when you do this embodiment work, normalizing wherever you are so you don’t feel shame about your experience.
She will also introduce the somatic element of elegance and lead you through an elegance embodiment practice to shift your confidence in the moment.
You’ll make the connection between elegance and stronger boundaries, how you communicate a “no” that’s truly received as “no,” and cultivate a sense of protection...
... because before you can safely express softness and vulnerability — your divine energy — it’s important to feel protected.
In this session, you’ll:
- Cultivate a greater sense of protection and boundaries by changing how you embody the somatic element of elegance
- Learn how to shift your embodiment and posture to a Power Pose that can change your confidence in just 2 minutes !
- Understand the connection between changing your embodiment and healing the trauma from the body
- Make the connection between using embodiment and witnessing to heal trauma
Module 5: Embodying the Divine Feminine Energy for Healing Through Sensual Pleasure — Part 1
Now that you’ve created a safer container for expressing your vulnerability, Chen will guide you to embody softness and sensuality — the element of the sabrosura.
You’ll continue to explore how to move softly, while breathing, so you can let go of the tension in your body that may be keeping you hard and guarded.
This requires surrender, which is difficult when you’ve experienced trauma, because it triggers a fear of being hurt.
You’ll deeply explore what the sabrosura is — the divine feminine energy in all genders — and why it’s so important for your healing. The sabrosura is connected to physical self-love and motherly love and enables you to release tension in all the areas where you’re wasting energy by holding trauma in your body.
When we release the tension and soften, feelings often come to the surface and we begin to open our hearts and feel what needs to be felt and released — so we can heal.
Chen will guide you through a variety of somatic practices to help you feel the pleasure of sabrosura. You’ll also delve deeper into what needs to be witnessed.
In this module, you’ll:
- Learn what the sabrosura is and why it’s so important to embody it and live from it
- Understand the connection between embodying the feminine divine and witnessing for greater healing
- Tap into the divine feminine energy in your body and use it for healing trauma from your body
- Experience what it’s like to release tension from the body related to trauma through sensual body movements
Module 6: Embodying the Divine Feminine Energy for Healing Through Sensual Pleasure & Returning to a State of Flow — Part 2
Now that you’ve begun to tap into the divine feminine energy in your body for healing, it’s time to go a little deeper and see how you can use this sensuality to get back into flow.
The sabrosura holds the power of touch, which is very important for healing.
When you work with touch and activate the element of mystery (where seduction lives), you can become triggered. Why? Because trauma is stored in the body... and if there was abuse or sexual abuse and you didn’t feel safe, then painful memories and narratives — and even the impulse of fight or flight — may be activated in your body.
You’ll discover the importance of standing in your elegance as you do the sensual somatic practices — including the caresses.
As Chen guides these practices, you’ll focus on touch, taking what you need rather than giving, and reaching an inner state of pleasure. You’ll combine these practices with breathing to enable more surrender.
If you’re not able to do these practices without fear, it’s not uncommon. It simply means that you need to be witnessed more before you can go to that place.
As Chen will explain, your body knows and communicates your whole story, and you’ll use your body’s wisdom to understand exactly what kind of healing you need.
In this session, you’ll:
- Practice sensuality as a way to surrender and meet part of the trauma that needs healing
- Understand why touch can be scary for people who are healing from trauma, and what we can do to release it
- Learn to pay attention to the wisdom and guidance of your body when it resists
- Understand how softness can bring you in contact with emotions that need witnessing
Module 7: Experience Joy & Replenish Your Vitality for Greater Healing
In this closing session, you’ll experience tempo — the somatic element of enjoyment.
According to Chen, there are various methods for healing trauma through the body, yet none of them tap into joy. Processing difficult emotions that need to be released from your body can be a heavy experience, because you’re spending time in pain, grief, shame, fear, and anger. It can be burdensome.
Chen will show you how to balance this heavy energy with joy, which replenishes your vitality.
She’ll guide you through a tumbao practice to tap into your inner rhythm of self-expression and enjoyment in your body, to shift your energy and increase your vitality in just five minutes a day.
You’ll explore the collective energy of trauma and joy, and how we’re all connected and impacted by each other. You’ll learn the importance of paying attention to what your body needs — and how to replenish yourself.
To close the program, you’ll review the ways this course has transformed you — your big wins! — and acknowledge, value, and celebrate what you’ve achieved.
In this final module, you’ll:
- Learn how to replenish your vitality and reach a natural high with a 5-minute somatic practice
- Understand the importance of connecting with your joy for greater healing
- Practice paying attention to what your body needs and saying “yes” to it
- Understand the connection between processing difficult emotions and feeling joy

“This program gave me the tools to move through my emotions in a more grounded and supportive way.”
This program gave me the tools to move through my emotions in a more grounded and supportive way. Prior to this program, I would often feel overwhelmed with strong emotions to the point that I would have to stuff them down, or I would spend weeks stuck in them before I could move on. I learned daily practices and tools that have shifted me so that I’m much more resilient and strong in the face of difficult emotions. I believe the practices in this program should be taught to everyone at a young age.
— Athena Hall, physician

More Praise for Chen Lizra...
“One of the greatest gifts I’ve received in this past year was the opportunity to meet and then become a client of Chen.”
One of the greatest gifts I’ve received in this past year was the opportunity to meet and then become a client of Chen. First as a participant in her SI Wisdom Academy program and then as a coaching client. What caught my eye about her first program was that it was billed as a program for “change makers.” Which I am, of course. Needless to say, the focus of the changes to be made were the changes to be made within — to become more effective at the changes we are here to make external to ourselves. Her approach to reconnecting one’s feeling self with their thinking self is enlightening and empowering. And fun. Her support team is also a great combination of loving and professional.
— Lisa Scheinkopf, founder and CEO of Jenrada LLC
“Working with Chen I experienced somatic softening and an expansion of my emotional ability to contain – emotional softening.”
Being a surgical doctor, the pace of life just constantly increases, and the private time shrinks. Great responsibility, extra-special attention that produces considerable pressure. Working with Chen I experienced somatic softening and an expansion of my emotional ability to contain — emotional softening. My patients can attest to this. Replacing some of the adrenaline with endorphins with the help of Chen’s method contributed to the reduction of my stress, both physical and mental, and led me to a better, and more professional and emotional place.
— Yona Yaniv, chief hand surgeon
“Working with Chen has shown me how past hurts and ‘blocks’ can contribute to suboptimal performance in charged, high-stakes situations...”
Much advice on high performance is centered around the theory that one should play to their strengths, but I am convinced that if you want to reach the peak, work should also be done on your weaknesses — anything that holds you back. Working with Chen has shown me how past hurts and “blocks” can contribute to suboptimal performance in charged, high-stakes situations, and given me the tools to iteratively process through these to achieve the clarity and balance necessary for ever-better outcomes. We all have scars, whether big or small, and I am thrilled to now be able to process through them for better outcomes in my professional life, and also to be a more whole and complete person in my personal life.
— Jacob Huber, CEO
“Chen led me on a most effective and aligning journey to wholeness through the SI coaching.”
After spending countless hours and tens of thousands of dollars on business coaching over the years and still feeling that something was missing, Chen led me on a most effective and aligning journey to wholeness through the SI coaching. Though I became quite adept at getting bigger than any challenge that came my way through “doing,” Chen brought awareness around the “being,” and shared insight and exercises in how to effectively align the two. As a result, I experience far less anxiety and my relationships have markedly improved. Thank you, Chen, for heightening my awareness, highlighting those blind spots in my somatic imprint, and mostly for the present of “being fully present.” You are a gift to the world!!
— Sheryl L. Houck, founder of Cash Offers Consultants
“Working with Chen through the SI coaching has been transformative for me.”
Working with Chen through the SI coaching has been transformative for me. Chen has extensive knowledge of forgotten important wisdom that both women and men need to be true to themselves, to heal negative stuck energy, and to attract and influence, which can make a big positive difference in your personal and professional lives. I enjoyed working with Chen; she is professional, very experienced, easy to relate to, and is a friend who listens, supports, and provides wisdom and guidance. I can’t recommend Chen enough.
— Fatema Alghfeli, MENA ICV manager
