Co-Founder and CEO of the Trauma Research Foundation, Licia Sky is a Boston based somatic educator, writer, artist, singer-songwriter, and bodyworker who works with traumatized individuals and trains mental health professionals to use mindful meditation in movement, theater exercises, writing and voice as tools for attunement, healing and connection.
Licia is an alum of the 2014 Month-long-Intensive of the Actor’s Training Program at Shakespeare & Company. With over 35 years of bodywork practice, Licia developed her methods of vocalizing for embodiment in physical and emotional healing when she began using her voice with her bodywork clients by vocalizing and toning – to help them release the constriction from repressed vocal expression. She found that breathing, toning and vocalizing led to profound beneficial changes of physical and emotional state. With training from the Actor’s Training Program at Shakespeare & Company, Licia was able to integrate a deeper level of experiential practice that now informs all her teaching. She has been teaching workshops on embodied awareness for the healing of trauma around the US, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Egypt, Israel, China, and New Zealand.
