We all have stories about who we are, where we come from, what we do and what has happened to us in our lives.  There are good memories and there are life events that are buried deep inside hiding our pain and suffering from the past.  Join us as we talk with Ruby Gibson about Somatic Archaeology, a therapy technique developed by Ruby, that helps people dig deep inside themselves, excavate the stories of life experiences and help bring about balance and wholeness.  She has a Masters Degree in Theology with a Special Emphasis in Transformational Psychology, and passionately brings her unique perspective to her current doctoral research and studies at Holos University. As a certified somatic therapist and licensed massage therapist, Ruby has worked with children and adults for thirty years, specializing in intergenerational recovery from trauma, abuse, injury, addictions, PTSD, and chronic pain. Ruby is a somatic pioneer who bridges bodywork, transpersonal psychology, human behavior, neurobiology, and spirituality along with Somatic Archaeology™.  A national educator for twenty-five years, she teaches professional certification programs in Somatic Archaeology™, along with workshops in Earth centered healing and aromatherapy.  Ruby is a poet and freelance writer, and owner of Howling at the Moon Productions located in the foothills of Colorado.  She has written a book called My Body, My Earth: The Practice of Somatic Archaeology.  Previous books include the novel,Home is the Heart (Bear & Co 1989) and The Heartbeat of Mother Earth (currently being reviewed for publication) which highlights 30 Indigenous Elders and Wisdomkeepers from around the world. Ruby is also the producer of Message Scent News, an aromatherapy educational journal.
