Dr. Risa Kaparo, Ph.D. - Inquiry of AIWP

This program is sponsored by Inquiry of the Association for the Integration of the Whole Person (AIWP), a non-profit organization. Inquiry is dedicated to supporting the awakening of somatic intelligence, the art and practice of embodied mindfulness to transform pain, stress, trauma and aging in support of transformational healing.

Dr. Risa Kaparo, Ph.D., developed the system called Somatic Learning® during three decades of research, clinical practice and training of health care practitioners, based on a synthesis of psychological, somatic, and meditative disciplines. As a young adult, Dr. Kaparo successfully healed herself from a painful and life-threatening illness. The discoveries she made prompted her to create a methodology to transform pain, stress, trauma and aging into wellness, embodied mindfulness and vital longevity. At the same time, there has been a growing body of scientific research that provides corroborating evidence for the capacity of the bodymind to heal itself from the inside out.

As a licensed Ph.D.-level psychotherapist and somatic therapist, Dr. Kaparo has offered her unique approach to self-healing to thousands of individuals around the world. She has taught Somatic Learning at many institutions internationally, including MIT, New College, JFK University, CIIS and China's Dalian Medical University. This system involves simple practices that take only a few minutes a day, yet promote highly beneficial and lasting changes in the brain and the whole body, reorienting a person toward ever-greater freedom, joy and aliveness. A long-time student of world-renowned Italian yoga master Vanda Scaravelli, Risa has trained yoga teachers for more than 30 years.

Awakening Somatic Intelligence: The Art & Practice of Embodied Mindfulness (North Atlantic Books, 2012) captures the wisdom of her teachings.

In addition to her work with Somatic Learning®, Dr. Kaparo is an award winning poet and songwriter. She first received high critical acclaim for her sensitive, inspirational poetry embodied in Embrace (Scarlet Tanager Press, 2006) as well as her two CDs combining a unique blend of music and spoken word. In 2007, Dr. Kaparo was awarded the prestigious Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Her writing has been described by critics "as a poetry of soul-making" and integrates the themes of both 'awakening' and 'embodiment'. Dr. Kaparo integrates her transformational work with creative writing, performance art, multi-media, music, voice with expressive arts therapy. This same artistry is reflected in the writing of the book, Awakening Somatic Intelligence: The Art & Practice of Embodied Mindfulness, and the companion videos.
