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 are Somatic Naturalists and Embodiment Mentors. Between us, we have more than 45 years of experience offering somatic education and bodywork. Passionate about our ongoing education, we have extensive training in The Feldenkrais Method, Structural Integration, Embodied Life Work, The Work That Reconnects, Tai Chi, Focusing, Ayurveda, Yoga & 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 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 learn to grow embodied presence, intimacy with life, and courageous kindness toward what is. As Mary Oliver wrote, "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.

Thank you for visiting 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.”
