In this webinar, we'll explore:
What is embodied imagination? And why is it a key to cultivating hope?
How to bring imagination into action through embodied practice so your ideas can come alive
How to tap into the intelligence of your felt senses so your intuition and decision making is guided by more than your thinking
How to vision somatically so you can be in the world, and imagine beyond it
Preventing “spiritual bypass” so you build your capacity to be present
Somatically expand your circle of concern from the “I” to the “we” to the “all” so you can cultivate embodied compassion
Embodied imagination is how your attention creates a somatic experience of skillfully moving energy and embodying new behaviors.

Join this free one-hour webinar with Staci and Iman to learn more about how to tap into your own embodied imagination right now.

Iman Boundaoui is a somatic practitioner and facilitator with a deep commitment to working with individuals and communities to heal and transform collective, intergenerational and politicized trauma. As a practitioner, she grounds in her indigenous North African cultural and spiritual wisdom lineages, and draws from traditional African-Sufi healing and embodiment practices, which she resources from in her own life and healing.

Iman is also an attorney and has practiced as a social-impact litigator, civil rights litigator and immigrant rights activist and organizer, working with individuals, communities and social justice organizations to curb the impact of state-sponsored discrimination and corrosive profit-driven corporate behavior and policy.

Her experiences working with law and policy to defend human life and dignity led Iman to seek out alternative pathways to working with individuals and communities in their fight for safety, dignity and belonging. After a few years of training with the Strozzi Institute as a practitioner, she is now a teacher at SI, where she continues the fight for wholeness and justice that she began years ago as a lawyer. When she’s not reading, writing, thinking about, or facilitating embodied transformation and healing work, you can find her hiking and foraging for wild herbs in the Santa Cruz mountains, a place she currently calls home that closely resembles her ancestral homeland in the Atlas Mountains.


Staci K. Haines is a national leader in the field of Somatics, specializing in intersecting personal and social change. She is a senior teacher at Strozzi Institute and the Director of Methodology, having studied and worked with Strozzi Institute since 1995.

Staci is the co-founder of generative somatics, a multiracial social justice organization bringing somatics to social and environmental justice leaders, organizations, and alliances. She is also the originator of Somatics and Trauma, and leads courses teaching psychologists, social change leaders, and other practitioners to effectively transform the impact of individual and social trauma and violence.

Staci is the author of The Politics of Trauma: Somatics, Healing and Social Justice (North Atlantic Press 2019) and Healing Sex: A Mind Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma (Cleis 1999, 2007). Healing Sex has been nationally recognized and translated into German, Japanese and Spanish. She also released the video Healing Sex (SIR Productions 2004). Lastly, Staci is the founder of generationFIVE, a community leadership organization whose mission is to end the sexual abuse of children within five generations.
