Somatic Experiencing International

Somatic Experiencing® International (SEI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, the educational and humanitarian home for Somatic Experiencing. We exist to bring education and training to those who can help heal people with trauma, hope to those living with trauma, and awareness of trauma to related professional communities and the general public. We mobilize them to volunteer, research, donate, and otherwise support our efforts to address the global crisis of unresolved trauma through access to SE.

SE is a body-oriented modality that helps heal trauma and other stress disorders. Developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D., it is the result of the multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, with more than 45 years of successful application.

“I have patients who are off all of their medications….who no longer suffer from panic attacks….who are no longer haunted by traumatic visions. I am trained in other techniques…. SE is the only method I have found that consistently helps people reorganize their nervous systems and greatly reduce, if not completely erase, trauma symptoms. Although I understand that the SE™ techniques are grounded in biology, the results are nothing short of miraculous.”
