Welcome to Embodiment Matters with Erin Geesamnan Rabke and Carl Rabke

We're honored to welcome you to our online home!

We are Carl Rabke & Erin Geesaman Rabke. Together, we are honored to steward a living body of work we call Integrative Embodiment. We describe ourselves as Somatic Naturalists and Embodiment Mentors. Between us, we have more than 50 years of experience offering somatic education and bodywork. We are passionate about our ongoing education and about how all of this work applies to the state of the world today and into the future.

We have extensive training in The Feldenkrais Method, Structural Integration (Carl), The Work That Reconnects (Erin), Embodied Life Work, Tai Chi, Focusing, Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and more. We're also parents, writers, podcasters, long-time meditators, passionate learners, and are madly in love with each other. We not only engage in this work professionally; we're deeply grateful to say it infuses every aspect of our lives.


Some Ways You Might Work With Us:


Ultimately, all of our work is about helping people to grow embodied presence, intimacy with life, and courageous kindness toward what is, all dedicated toward the well being of Life on Earth.

We can't say it any better than Mary Oliver:

"You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." 

It's true.

We believe with our whole hearts that embodiment matters deeply – not only to our personal well-being, but for the healing of our world.

Warmest welcome to our online home!


“Erin and Carl Rabke are two of the most awake, compassionate, and embodied practitioners I have worked with. Both of them bring inspiration, subtlety and exquisite nuance to their instruction. They are deeply in touch with their audience and I would entrust anyone to their reliable hands.”

Diane Musho Hamilton, author of Everything is Workable and The Zen of You and Me
