Licia Sky is a co-founder and the CEO of the Trauma Research Foundation.
She is a somatic educator, artist, singer-songwriter, and bodyworker who works with
traumatized individuals and trains mental health professionals to use mindful
meditation in movement, theater exercises, writing, and voice as tools for
attunement, healing, and connection. She is a regular instructor in trauma healing
workshops at Cape Cod Institute, Kripalu, and Esalen. For the past decade, she has

In the course of over 25 years of bodywork practice, she developed her methods of
vocalizing for embodiment in physical and emotional healing when she began using
her voice with her bodywork clients by vocalizing and toning – to help them release
the constriction from repressed vocal expression. She found that breathing, toning
and vocalizing led to profound beneficial changes of physical and emotional state.
