somanauts origin mythos

We found each other on the dance floor. In the mosh of dancing for hours on end at events, and for days at a time at transformational festivals we gathered our far-flung family, enfolding them in our embrace. We rooted into the conscious movement hub that is the Bay Area and her satellite communities in Grass Valley and Los Angeles. Movement specialists, we performed bodywork on bodyworkers and stacked benefits as we stacked bodies on top of one another, compounding the collective release.

Through radical honesty and interpersonal intimacy, we opened into each other, revealing parts of ourselves we had believed could never be seen lest love be driven from the viewer of such internal shadow. We realized that darkness deferred merely meant it would crop up unconsciously and have its needs met in less savory means. Holding hands, we looked bravely into each other’s shadows and found the root of our concerns – we feared losing connection. Letting fall the social masks we began asking for what we really wanted, creating social structures and activities that met our needs in group and expedited everyone’s evolution within the progressing collective (eg. steam bath cleansing while singing, nomadic sauce nutrition, squish, cuddling, performance healing).

We are dancers and lifelong movers taking care of each other’s bodies & beyond.

We strengthened through strenuous activity, lifting other bodies, and we developed a massage style of healing and lengthening on the dance floor, in movement and pause at particularly pleasant positions to dive deep and sit in the scrumptious skeletal stillness.

We provide videos for you to get a sense of the style and demonstrate techniques, but a direct body transmission is a multisensory energetic experience that cannot simply be captured on film. This intangible healing field is enhanced when multiple healers gather together with shared intention and why this style benefits from a crew displaying a diversity of styles within the umbrella of somanauts. This exponentially multiplying effect is why we advocate for you to book somanauts to come to your space so you can feel our frequency in your field.
