2. The Power in Being Human

The root of Sonya’s message lies in the power of being human and the need for all of us to raise our emotional & somatic intelligence, what she calls whole-body intelligence. When we embrace our full potential as humans, we naturally spark our empathy, ability to relate to others, communication skills, and more.
