Humanual may be one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure to read, and speaking with the author, Betsy Polatin, was s special treat unto itself.

Betsy Polatin, MFA, SEP is an internationally recognized breathing/movement specialist and best-selling author. She has been teaching for more than forty years and is currently a master lecturer at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts. Her background includes forty-five years of movement education and performance, as well as training in the Alexander Technique, music, dance, yoga, meditation, trauma resolution, and the broader healing arts. Her work is greatly influenced by the teachings of Spiritual and Meditation Masters.

Betsy leads international trainings where she presents her unique and revolutionary fusion of ideas: scientific knowledge combined with ancient wisdom and intuitive human creativity. Since 2016, she has been co-teaching ongoing workshops with Peter A. Levine, PhD. And she has taught “Returning to Ourselves, the Wisdom of Trauma,” with Dr. Gabor Maté. Betsy’s previous book, The Actor’s Secret, was featured on ABC TV and Fox News, and received rave reviews. As a well-known educator, she has published numerous articles in the Huffington Post. She maintains a private practice online internationally.

I left this interview feeling calm, happy, and in a state of flow and expansion. I wish the same for anyone who chooses to listen to it!
