The Somatic Man ~ A Conversation with David Yates

Season 1, Ep. 10

"When movement and dance isn't happening, what's left? Are we sitting around at home or at a coffee shop acting as talking heads on top of bodies that have lost the ability to be at ease?.....

The path towards being whole beings— not just whole men— is to include movement."

~ David Yates

For the past four years he has also facilitated non-violence workshops for teen boys.
