“We rise by lifting others.”

Robert Ingersoll

” Until we find peace within ourselves we can not achieve peace and collaboration with others. 

Therefore I enthusiastically support Somatic And Expressive Arts International  initiative of bringing Somatic Experiencing education into the culturally diverse region of south-eastern Europa , a place where peace could make  significant positive impact on a global scale”.

Peter Levine Ph.D., Ph.D

We strive to empower women, children and men to break cycles of victimization and to reach their full potential, the birth right of everyone, in order to live thriving lives and become fully functioning contributing members within their communities. 



Our Vision is to break, and end, the perpetual cycles of violence in Central and South-East Europe.



Providing cutting edge therapy approaches such as Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Organic Intelligence (OI) to traumatized women, children and men. We support and organize education where professionals will be enabled to immerse themselves in our comprehensive training program in SE, OI and similar practices, in order to learn skills that they can include and implement in their work, schools, kindergartens and family environments.
