You will find on this page some educational materials to be
used in exploring one's gut instinctual responses. We have had
a number of teachers of introductory psychology classes email
us and ask us for further resources on our work to be used in
the classroom, handouts, etc., as well as requests for art directives
exploring the gut feelings. Please check back to this page frequently
as we will be updating it with further materials.

be used as Handouts (PDF files in black and white versions of

In the somatic depth psychology process,
the individual moves through a cycle of six phases of depth work
beginning and ending the cycle with an initiatory experience.
We identify, name, and explain these six phases:
Initializing or Opening the Doorway; Identifying; Dislodging;
Dispersing or Going Back to the Source; Absorbing; and Integrating
Initiation or Experiencing the Self. We have used these
6 phases in our book Whats Behind Your Belly Button?
to assess the Somatic Reflection Process with gut feelings as
a depth process and it may also be used for other mind-body therapeutic
modalities to identify as depth process. We hope this will be
useful for you in your research and understanding of Depth Psychology:
