It no longer makes sense to treat what happens in the mind as separate from embodied experience, even if much of it is implicit rather than explicit.
Many developments have contributed to demystify what we mean by ‘implicit’. Ever since Reich, somatic approaches to psychotherapy have given us a concrete sense of the phenomenology between ‘mind’ and ‘body’. Neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and embodied cognition have been converging into an emerging model of the human mind as an embodied process. Trauma therapies have been at the forefront of applying this model to clinical practice.
The Relational Implicit podcast (formerly known as Somatic Perspectives) explores somatic psychology, relational therapies, mindfulness and trauma therapies. Most of this exploration takes the form of conversations with psychotherapists, occasionally researchers. See podcast conversations in chronological order, or in alphabetical order.

This is a collaborative process, nourished by many conversations, such as the ones on this site, as well as other venues. This project’s editor, Serge Prengel, LMHC, is in private practice in New York City. See his perspective on embodied relational mindfulness in psychotherapy.
